    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.

    Pros

    nothing, you can learn anything they teach by just googling.

    Cons

    Company forces you to trade from day one, they don't let you buy less than 100 shares, you can't adjust your risk by changing your position size that's why you should choose cheaper stocks to reduce your risk, even if there is no set up to trade. Let say, you saw a great technical set up with good risk/reward ratio but it's a $150 stock. You can not buy 50 shares so that your risk is tolerable, instead you give up that stock and watch $20 stock and wait for good set up.

    When you start trading, it's obvious that you can not make money right away because every trader needs a learning and practicing period. Mean while your account is shrinking until you learn, because you are charged with different kind of fees every month. After few months, you already pay significant amount of fees and if you lost some money at trading, then you're either out or replenish your contribution.

    They don't care about your trading, if you check career websites they're always hiring, because after you get in, you're cash cow for them, after few people leave, they need new cash resources. Their business works in that way.

    My only advice is KEEP AWAY from this firm. You don't learn anything and you can't make any money if you're inexperienced. If you're experienced already, check out other serious trading firms, they're already providing base salary plus bonus or commission based structure.

    Trading is not a simple task but it doesn't mean that you have to be ripped off while you're learning.

    Focus on providing solid training for your new traders

    Pros

    Good mentor that teaches you everything you need to know.
    Coworkers are friendly.
    Nice view from the boardroom and the desk -- you can see the Statue of Liberty.
    Can make good money: although you need to be a good trader or learn to be one in the first place.

    Cons

    Capital contribution: you need to risk your own money.
    Eat what you kill.
    Can be stressful and over competitive sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing that I can think of.
