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

    Pros

    - An environment of high level performers who are willing to invest time in your development.

    - A core focus on developing you personally and professionally with an expectation to be outside your comfort zone.

    - A modern, well designed work space that looks across the City and doesn't feel like being in an office.

    - A culture/attitude to healthy living with a gym in the Alpha office (everybody included in group PT sessions throughout the week).

    - A platform to financially set you up for life.

    - An open minded management/senior team with no feeling that you can't voice your opinion and that progression isn't available just because you're new.

    - Unbelievable work trips and incentives.

    - The culture of the team. Really good bunch of people.

    - The pace in which the business is constantly evolving.

    Cons

    - Finding/adjusting to a suitable a work/life balance in the early months of the job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Alpha FX (London, England) in March 2018.

    Interview

    A short interview of 30 minutes with 2 people. First interviewer was 'good cop' and the second one 'bad cop'. They were really good at explaining the role but not so much about the company itself. Job spec as really vague and they didn't offer feedback.
