    I have been working at Questrade as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment, lovely corporate culture full of young people with great ideas.
    Workplace is very accepting of different cultures, backgrounds and open to your ideas on how they can improve.

    Plenty of room to learn new things working alongside other team members/supervisors

    Cons

    Not much to mention for the cons. Everything is great but maybe communication as to what changes are happening around the company would be something to appreciate.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Lots of things have changed recently and for the better. A young positive workforce at QT is one of the best things you have.

    I have been working at Questrade full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to get hired, they hire about 10 new people every 3 months due to the high turnover.

    Cons

    Very low salary (less the industry average), limited benefits, no opportunity for advancement, every time a position opens the whole company applies to it.

    Advice to Management

    A great company retains its employees, a mediocre company has high turnover, no wonder you're losing clients
