    Not a wolf at all, but a coyote. A mange covered and malnourished beta, barely surviving on carrion. The pack has left you behind.

    I worked at Freepoint Commodities full-time for more than 2 years

    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...

    I have been working at Freepoint Commodities full-time for more than 4 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...
