    Pros

    Senior Management are very good and kind hearted people. Rare to find in the finance industry. I would highly recommend anybody who wants to make money and stay away from dark parts of this industry to work here.

    Cons

    Not many cons I can think of. You have to be a principled and honest person to work here. IT also means that if you are somebody that is dishonest as you find in the finance field this may not be the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great direction and good words even when times are bad. Thank you for the continual support and encouragement and for showing me how to do things the right way.
