    I have been working at Freepoint Commodities full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    free lunches, 0 cost health care (although sub par coverage). Low / Easy work load.

    Cons

    biggest complaint is transparency - of which there is none. management continually fails to guide expectations and only holds company meetings in ad-hoc infrequent sessions (2 so far in the history of the company, of which one occurred after they dismissed a large percentage of staff)

    no career progression, difficult to communicate with a large percentage of staff, very tumultuous and unstable environment.

    the biggest drawback is the lack of mentors who are interested in your personal and career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication and oversight of your business would lead to less attrition.
