What Employees Say
I have been working at OSTC full-time
One of the best things about OSTC is the people. The company has family feel to it, and all staff are approachable, including the Directors. It's very inclusive with social events planned... monthly during the summer. There's an obvious scope to grow and develop within the company, which is actively encouraged, especially if you are motivated to do so. The company are dedicated to employee development, with regular appraisals / goal & development reviews. Salary is very reasonable for the area. The company itself is branching out on different directions, and you feel the enthusiasm, ambition and dedication from the Board, which in turn gives the entire company a positive feeling and belief in the future of OSTC. Overall, I would recommend OSTC as a good place to work.
The lift is still broken after God knows how many years. Good for exercise, but doesn't present a professional first impression of the company. Neither does the facade of the building. Things which... i understand are in hand. However, they've been in hand for years, and it doesn't seem to have progressed any further. Another con is the lack of benefits. Salary is reasonable, but I feel more benefits, such a Private Medical / Dental, should be offered to staff.
Advice to Management
It would be beneficial for your staff if you included more health benefits (on top of the salary), such as PMI and Group Dental, maybe a corporate rate for a local gym, rather than just a pension.
I have been working at LDN Capital full-time for less than a year
The chance to learn from actual traders who genuinely have decades worth of experience between them. Work & Learn alongside like-minded individuals. (Your definitely bound to meet some interesting... people on the program!) The opportunity to go full time at the end of the program. Great place to start if you're new to the Industry. Everything well explained and always happy to answer any questions you have. Not teaching you to be robots/clones, they allow you to find your own style of trading and methodology and once identified, help you grown from there.
Early Starts! But to be expected from the nature of the business you'e getting in to. They do phase in the early starts which is helpful. I generally can't think of any more other than having to... get out of bed a little earlier but you'll quickly get used to this! :)
Advice to Management
Overall very impressed and pleased with the quality of the course! Can't really fault it! Possibly more 1-2-1 Meetings. These are incredibly valuable when they take place but only really seemed to... commence towards the mid-end of the program, could be useful to have them at the start to help affirm individual trainee's understanding etc..
