Not your typical 9-5 job

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Your day starts whenever your market does, and since the exchange of your market is situated in some distant land, the timing is usually pretty odd. If you can handle stress and don't care much about the job security, this job is for you. However, your social life may take a hit, and since the management strongly discourages you from taking holidays, you may not be able to describe yourself as a travel buff anymore.

Pros

Lots of money (but one guy in a hundred does it)

Cons

Work-life balance is ruined, No job security

Mind sharpening

Working at Futures first enables employees to think fast and be keen to details. The market moves fast and is quite volatile and unpredictable and therefore quick decisions also have to be made

Future first is typical proprietary trading firm with hectic work hours and no work life balance. The exit options after this role are also very limited.

Only if you like trading

Working at Futures First is a risky profession owing to the highly competitive nature of the job. Moreover, there is no work life balance but there is ample compensation for good trades.

Pros

Good Compensation

Cons

Poor work life balance and high stress.

Good experience

You can hardly image a life as a trader. But I get this job right after graduation. I think this high pace job full of intense and fun. You can achieve really high package if you prove excellent in the markets. I would always thank to HR and my manager to provide me the opportunity. Even though I left the company due to the balance of study, I still miss it sometime.

Pros

Holiday both in China and U.K.

Cons

healthy care

Very informative, challenging and great opportunity

It is a great place to work in. Probably the most challenging environment to work in. Was a very consistent trader. Delivered on all the set goals. Reached beyond my assigned work duties to develop strategies, learnt Javascript to automate trading.

Pros

Highly rewarding if you are successful

Cons

reached the maximum growth possible for a trader

Best place to start a career in Finance in India.

A typical day at work starts with analyzing various data releases that happened overnight and and have a look at various data releases to take place that day. Read key market fundamentals in various markets I trade and get ready for the day. Learnt a lot about market dynamics with real time trading experience across a wide range of markets. I traded in Cotton, Soybeans, Soybean Oil, Crude Oil, Aluminium, Zinc and FCOJ. Management is fairly encouraging. Interactions are frequent. Hardest part of the job is to maintain work life balance. We got to work between 1 PM and 12 AM Indian time. But, gradually, i have learnt to overcome problems at home because of work. Most enjoyable part of the work is to trade in a lot of markets on a day to day basis. You break your records, increase knowledge levels and learn a lot about new produces. It is a fun process.

Pros

Parties, Fun Place to work

Cons

Long hours against the natural biological clock
