    I worked at Freepoint Commodities full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - decent Base pay
    - free lunch
    - fully paid medical
    - decent vacation days but you can't take them all. it's frowned upon

    Cons

    - Work culture is terrible
    - No career growth
    - They expect you to work 10+ hours even if there isn't work for more than 2 hours a day. so if you just sit in front of the computer and browse, they are happy
    - No meritocracy or looking for a best solution to any problem
    - you will have to work with lots of dicks around
    - I can go on and on....to be succinct... if you must, take the job, take it. but do find a better one and move on quickly. anyone with good technical abilities can easily get thru' the interview. the interview process is laughable.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing that I can say change anything here. I'll save myself the trouble.
