    I worked at GFI Group full-time


    salary was competitive and my immediate supervisor was amazing in addition to a great working environment on the trading floor


    the benefits were not cheap and when I was there the company was taken over. The biggest problem was the Executives and board members tried to undercut the shareholders and then when it backfired tried to make it all seem wonderful while leaving everyone in the firm in utter confusion. I didn't trust the upper management anymore so I along with 100s of others chose to leave before it got even worse

    Advice to Management

    doesn't matter they were taken over and lost control but with a big payday.. please stay away from firms with actual employees go somewhere and count your money...alone
