    Pros

    The people are AMAZING. It's a great learning environment - your role has a large scope and everyone is approachable across levels and departments.

    Cons

    Some perceptions of passing the blame, although not company wide.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on more transparency and communication.

    I have been working at Questrade full-time

    Pros

    Great place to start a career in financial services; always growing and innovating; central location if living in suburbs (Yonge and Finch)

    Cons

    Pay is low and hard to get a big pay jump quickly

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! Just don't bring in c-suite members that might not fully contribute to the growth of the firm and focus on your big products.

    I have been working at Questrade full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company is lean. A lot of the technical management are engineers themselves, and there's not many of them, so there is no danger of "too many chiefs, not enough indians". Most of the management structure is team leads reporting directly to directors.

    Cons

    The above pro is also a bit of a con, since it gives limited room for individual growth. With limited supervisory positions open, getting promoted usually requires someone else leaving the position first.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing a great job overall. The only advice I can give is to offer stock options, one of the things that's been asked about for years and has been completely ignored. Having a personal stake in the company will motivate your engineers, especially those in senior positions who posses a lot of the proprietary knowledge about the products developed internally, and discourage them from leaving. The "cost" of replacing some of these critical individuals could be quite high.

    Pros

    Questrade pays much better than other banks and offer exceptional benefit. Senior Management have tremendous talent and treat employee as asset.

    Food court is bad in North American Centre. They should have moved to other office for expanding.

    On the right track and periodically review salary to avoid losing good employees to big banks.
