What is the salary like at Alpha FX?

Pros

Alpha employs talented, hardworking people who give back to their environment, and it shows. From top to bottom, employees are welcoming and supportive, and are genuinely happy to celebrate your success. The team in Toronto is smaller, is very tight knit, and comes with the buzzing excitement of a Startup with the resources of a medium cap PLC behind it. Days are busy but fast paced; the week goes by very quickly. My colleagues are people that I can learn from, people that I know care about the work they do, and most importantly people I want to have beers with at the end of the week! I highly respect upper management's leadership style. Everything comes down to meritocracy. Questions/learning are highly encouraged, and there is a ton of support for new hires. Mark Stuart, Managing Director, my direct boss is a great example of this. He wants the best for the team, and it shows through his dedication and support. He gives constructive criticism where it’s needed, and just as importantly gives praise where it's deserved. Where we have had differences of opinions, Mark is always candid and open to new opinions despite being the boss. The office is in a Wework: open-ish concept, friendly neighbors, ergonomic desks, stocked kitchen, 2-minute walk from Osgoode station. We are moving to the brand-new WeWork at 357 Bay St soon... if it ever opens! Competitive base salary, benefits, and uncapped commission. Obviously, this job is not for everyone, but for me working at Alpha has been absolutely life changing.

Cons

Hard work/long hours; This was made clear in my interview process; there is an abundance of opportunity offered at alpha, but it is expected that you work your hardest. Hard work is a staple of Alpha culture, and it is easier to work hard when upper management leads by example. If you are looking to clock in/clock out at the bell, this job is not for you.

Advice to Management

Advice to management: Mark and Max have been instrumental to both my personal and career development. Keep up the support for PMs!

What are other benefits and incentives like at Alpha FX?

Pros

Enormous room for growth in Alpha's first overseas office. Uncapped compensation. Strong team dynamic. Lots of emphasis on personal development and consistent sales training from Senior Management

Cons

Company is very transparent in the interview process on what is expected, which to be fair is a lot more than most jobs. This job is not for everyone, if your looking to have your hand held and ego patted this is not the place for you.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work. Alpha's business model from the UK is proven.

Uncapped compensation.
