Advice to Management

Na

Former Employee - Controller

I worked at ACT Commodities full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great place to make money if you started early and got a decent slice of the customer pie. The company weekend is fun too. Good place if you have no experience and just graduated college.

Cons

Success will highly depend on your manager and how much you're willing to put the effort in making cold calls without one of your colleagues cannibalizing your margin. Limited liquidity in the market... and the products are highly influenced by political agendas so it's definitely not your typical trading environment. Overall it's a frat-house type work environment that can be toxic at times. There is a non-compete agreement you will be signing and they have enforced it with employees in more than one office location in the past, so don't expect to use anything you learn at ACT somewhere else.

Advice to Management

Get on with the times, invest in real professional development (especially for managers), and don't burn every person that decides to leave as it tarnishes your reputation.
