      No Training, Ruthless Culture

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good exp. for ppl wanting to become traders. Good pay (though only slightly higher than oil majors). Potential to travel. Equity owners make a ton of money at a young age.

      Cons

      Compared to oil majors, you work 50% more, you receive poor training, you are blamed for anything that goes wrong. You may be fired quite quickly, even if it is an honest mistake. Very high turnover. Low morale. Shady business practices.
