    I have been working at T3 Trading Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very inclusive and communicative atmosphere to share ideas on possible Investments.

    Almost unlimited earnings based on performance.

    Great upper management.

    Cons

    Expensive area to live in if working in the Manhattan Office.

    Can be very individual in your work which can make it apprehensive to make major decisions with large amounts of capital.

    Pros

    Could earn some easy money if you are an experienced trader.
    Time is flexible. You can work at both home and office.

    Cons

    So many fees each month.
    Nobody will take care of you, worst choice for new trader.
    During interview, they will tell you how good is T3 and how much time they spend on teaching new trader, don't trust them. After you gave them your contribution check, everything is by your own.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring new trader, stop wasting those young man's time.

    Pros

    low commission( .015), supportive management, effective over head, flexible work time, unlimited potential

    Cons

    Some fix charges not too bad( if you don't know that, you should be ashamed on your self for not reading your filings). trading is not easy, not for you if you expect you can make tones of money with no real trading experience, knowledge. Trading isn't get rich quick.Don't even try, if you want stable salary, with little or no upside potential and wants benefits.

    Pros

    Good environment and accepting atmosphere. Everyone wants to win but everyone also wants to be the MVP.

    Cons

    Not many as of now. Possibly more hands on training before coming to the trading desk.

    Advice to Management

    Give entry level employee's more material and information so the learning curve isn't as steep coming in.
