    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Freepoint Commodities as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everybody was very friendly, and because of the open trading floor there were many opportunities to meet and interact with higher-ups in the company to develop my understanding of the commodities trading industry

    Cons

    The work was not very engaging in my department, and there was lack of formal instruction to the requirements of the job. More of a 'sink-or-swim' environment.

    Advice to Management

    Continue developing the intern training program! Maybe outline some goals or a schedule for interns to adhere to. This will give interns a better idea of the expectations of their job.
