    Pros

    After office hour client building, fast-paced environment, amazing people. Really a good sense of community within the desks they grow to be like your family.

    Cons

    unfulfilling at times, when market is slow your day drags. The day to day job is not as exciting as it seems.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be a bit more transparent about where they believe the company is moving and how to shape the company in a way that can battle market shocks.

    Pros

    Every day at ICAP was very exciting. It is a work hard play hard type of environment. It is challenging but you have more than enough resources to accomplish and excel at your tasks.

    Cons

    When the business was not good, it wasn't good for anyone. Also the fast paced environment translated to high stress at times. Definitely not for the weak-hearted.
