    Pros

    Lots of time to spare. Can get home at 6pm.

    Cons

    Lack of integrity at the top management level.

    Senior management, has at several times, called and told us loudly on the phone to "buy" the stock for the clients. This has happened several times. Not only that, they say that everytime they put an order down for a client, the stock in question always rises.

    Funny that the senior management won't ask the prop exchange department, that usually does their “private” trades to do it, but to ask another department, where all sales brokers were gathered to do the trades.

    Does he want us to get in trouble with the SFC at our expense?

    Just stay well away from this company if I were you.

    Advice to Management

    Act with integrity. You are not the smartest, What goes round comes around.
