    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at OTA Management full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance. No dress code. Highly intelligent staff.

    Cons

    Low base salaries. Feedback if any is negative. No accountability.No room for movement or growth. Company is a shell of its former self.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your staff on what direction the company is going. They are not dumb,they see the writing on the wall.

    I have been working at OTA Management full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    laid back and casual attire. In at about 9am and out the door before 5pm. With my kids in 30 minutes. Boss doesn't bother you as job isn't really challenging and you go through the motions of being interested.. Get to help rich boss and use his things. Stable job if you kiss but a bit and have an MBA.

    Cons

    There are some sleazy staff who present themselves as a securities firm. Management knows they have us over a barrels as we don't want to travel to NYC for a job.

    Advice to Management

    sure I have a short commute but when staff have been there more than 10 years and have an MBA, share the profits with the people who really manage the money.

    family members make all the money or those that the choose to make money its not a real hedge fund more like a wealthy family firm they run the firm on fear. it is run mainly in a socialist fashion there is no competition amongst anyone
