Was good.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at GFI Group

ProsMost people are good. Sometimes flexible.

ConsWay too laid back. Not much growth.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Technology

Broker (Former Employee)

I worked at GFI Group

ProsGreat Tech, innovative management, good work environment, International presence with ambition to go out more. Great tech allows you to get into products you normally wouldn't see.

ConsAbsolutely the worst payout structure in the Street. If you have good clients look away at other shops before going to them. GFI feels its because of GFI that you are successful and not because of your relationships. If they offer you stock options, run. Pay a good money for a lawyer before you sign their contract.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou have lost some good employees that have left and gone on to make incredibly more money because of your low payouts. Bump it up and they will come.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
