    I have been working at Online Trading Academy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Growth focused: The culture at Online Trading Academy is that we grow from within. All new ideas are worth trying at least once and everybody is heard regardless of where you fit in the corporate structure. The company its values written out and if someone fits within the culture and values they will always have a place here.

    Cons

    Because Online Trading Academy is so stringent on who they hire, it can take a while to actually get your foot in the door. The good news is, once you're in, you're in.

    By far, this has been the best company I have ever worked for (no exaggerations)!! The other team members and upper management are welcoming and are willing to help you with anything you need. The culture here is amazing! The company also believes in a work/life balance and aren't micromanaging your every move.

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    Amazing Culture With Growth Opportunity - I love this company and leadership. Do I work hard, yes...Am I given the autonomy to succeed? YES! The culture is fantastic - I feel driven, and truly believe that we help others to succeed and change their financial lives! If you have an opportunity to join OTA, and you believe in helping others, this is a company to be a part of.

    Cons

    Some weekend work. Long travel days in my role.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to Innovate and Improve Student Services! If we always make what we do about improving student success, everything else will follow.

    I have been working at Online Trading Academy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    OTA provides a professional, fun and friendly working environment. I am also impressed with the company because they do what they say they are going to do when they say they are going to do it. I love the investment the company makes in the employees through training, awards and the annual employee conference. Everything at OTA is done first class, our compensation is fair and competitive and our students are well taken care of through training, support, and technology.

    Cons

    Sometimes the traveling can be a little too much, From time to time we make changes without fully putting together a process or success plan. Working most weekends is difficult.

    Advice to Management

    A little more oversight by upper management on key decisions and strategies. Create more advancement opportunities.

    There is no slow down... we are always pushing for new and higher highs.

    Pros

    The best thing an employer can hear from their team members is that they love coming to work every day. I hear this regularly from people all around our network - from center staff, instructors, corporate headquarters staff, executives - all around the company. The love that our people have for the company, our people, our students is truly inspiring. Great people, great mission, great place to invest your career.

    Cons

    The pace of progress and change here is relentless. This is only a "con" if you don't thrive on innovation and change.
