    I have been working at Maverick Trading full-time

    Pros

    I like how much we have going on and how many opportunities there are to prove myself. It helps me keep focused and motivated and I appreciate the fact that my managers have trusted me to take initiative. It's paid off big time in terms of my standing with upper management.

    Cons

    Just that we get pretty busy at times.

    Thanks for the review. The great thing about the markets is that you do have to prove yourself every day. We're glad that you feel we keep you focused and motivated; that's what we're here for... More

    I have been working at Maverick Trading full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Joined Maverick upon completion of graduate school and wanted the freedom and flexibility of very low expenses and ability to live anywhere and trade. Really great group of traders who will mentor you, fun group of guys. The firm doesn't take commission splits from trades that traders place, which keeps your best interest in mind (profitability). Firm only generates profits if your overall account is profitable with placing trades. Which is very hard to find these days! There are no limits on how much capital traders can trade with and your not limited to placing a certain amount of trades and can essentially trade your own strategy, time-frames etc. Just from the trade alerts the company sends out, one can easily generate substantial returns.

    Cons

    From the beginning Maverick has continually developed and progressed in terms of trader support and ease in obtaining capital. Bright futures ahead for Maverick and its traders!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop website content and trading program.

    I have been working at Maverick Trading full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been in and out of the prop industry for over 15 years now and most of the firms I used to know have either closed or merged with the others. I chose Maverick as they have basically run as an independent firm and taken care of their traders for the long term. They are very upfront with the costs of trading and are very available when you need them. Fast payout on profits only take 1 day.

    Cons

    TWS software isn't my favorite platform I've traded on but the costs of data feeds are 10% of what I paid on sterling and laser

    Pros

    Outstanding organization. I have been with Maverick for approximately 3 years. Their training program is world class and the people are genuinely interested in your success. Trading stocks and futures is hard work. To be successful you need to understand the markets, utilize strategies that are effective in different market conditions, and then execute your trades when the market provides you with the opportunities. The folks at Maverick do that on a consistent basis and have taught me how to do it. One of the best organizations I have ever had the good fortune to be with.

    Cons

    none, absolutely no cons that I can think of

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing

    I have been working at Maverick Trading full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was hired on to update some of their programming and customize some of their trading softwares after being a trader for them since 2012. I have been a trader for the mid 90's and have been around many trading firms over the years and some shops are cutthroat and set up for the firm while others are more like teams working together. Maverick is definitely set up as one of the latter which is why i stay

    Cons

    Some strategies are prohibited by management. It can be a little annoying but I also understand the firm's need for risk management as the prohibitive strategies mostly exclude naked option selling.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep up the good work and continue to evolve and grow as a trading firm. Nothing other than that.

    I have been working at Maverick Trading full-time

    Pros

    In my opinions, Maverick is one of the coolest companies you could ask to work for. Not just in Salt Lake, either. The work is so innovative that it's always interesting, and it's not rare for me to talk to an industry friend about something I'm working on and they tell me it's something their company has even touched yet.

    Cons

    Hours can be long on rare occasions if the job demands it.

    Pros

    I have worked for Maverick for several months now. My brother is one of the risk managers for the firm and helped me to get involved in trading and working for Maverick. Everyone here has been fantastic to work with and I am very happy to associate with people that value honesty and integrity. If you are interested in becoming a trader or gaining the necessary capital to reach your goals, joining Maverick will be the best decision you can make.

    Cons

    I haven't found anything to complain about yet, but I'll keep looking.

    Advice to Management

    A soda machine in the kitchen area would be fantastic!!
