Pros

Alpha has provided me with such an amazing opportunity, and I'm so proud to be part of the team. The company is full of exciting, talented, driven people, that continue to empower each other and genuinely want others to do well, which is so motivating. Male/Female, young/old, it doesn't matter, as long as you work hard you will be recognised and rewarded - which is a breath of fresh air for this industry.

Cons

I struggle to think of anything significant, yes we work long hours but this is just the norm to me now and the culture and rewards outweigh this considerably.

Pros

-Ability to work in a fast paced environment with a great team - Excellent development and growth opportunities - Hard work pays off mentality - Upper management isn't far removed (CEO and SR Partners are very involved in development) - Opportunity to travel around Canada and Europe -great opportunity for females in finance as it is typically a male dominated industry - had no prior experience in finance or FX and it hasn’t hindered my success

Cons

- with great opportunity comes a lot of pressure. If you can’t take the heat get out of the kitchen - start up in Canada (with every start up comes some growing pains)

Advice to Management

-keep addressing growing pains of being a startup while keeping the fun startup vibe

Pros

These are the 2 main things that come to mind when considering why I enjoy working at Alpha: The people As soon as you join you realise that you're surrounded by incredibly inspriring, talented, hard-working individuals. I was particularly surprised when I first joined, at how open the culture is here. Everyone, in all areas of the business, will offer their knowledge, experience and feedback in order to push you to excel. Everyone celebrates individual successes and as cheesy as it sounds, there's a real team spirit. The opportunity Having only started at Alpha 8 months ago, and with this being my first job in the industry, the amount that I have learned, the responsibility I have been given and the opportunity ahead of me is pretty incredible. All employees are given the opportunity to forge their own success and hard-work is noticed and highly rewarded. Morgan, the CEO, goes out of his way to praise success when due, and you can tell that he genuinely wants to give employees amazing opportunities. All in all, a job at Alpha is highly rewarding and exciting. I'm genuinely excited as to what the future will bring, and I can feel that the rest of the team is too.

Cons

A high performing team comes with high expectations. You need to be down to earth but an ambitious go-getter - if you're not then you're probably not right for Alpha.

Advice to Management

You make everyone feel very inclusive and involved in the success of Alpha, and keep us all in the loop as to what's going on across the company so I'd say keep this up.
