    I worked at EFG Capital International full-time

    Pros

    Very humane management. Navigated the Financial meltdown of 2008 with tremendous care for its employees, avoiding massive layoffs. No training unless you really seek it. Very quiet environment, large number of spanish speaking employees. Nice offices, company provides reasonable benefits.

    Cons

    Poor technology, maybe too much unnecessary micromanagement for example, arrival time checks...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, They do a good job.

    I worked at EFG Capital International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Laid back office, while serious and professional, you can also hear a lot of jokes and laughter. Good pay with decent benefits, offers a good chance to organize your office the way you want, no standard way of completing transactions or storing files, etc.

    Cons

    IT is TERRIBLE! Systems are so outdated it will drive you crazy, servers go down constantly, EFG offers no training, you are thrown into the fire and must learn on a trial and error basis. Technologically far from a US company. Management is very difficult to get a hold of, you will need at least 1 manager to sign off on certain time-sensitive transactions but good luck finding them around. Some are very unwilling to help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of the assistants and operations crew, one of the managers admitted to me that they don't do a good enough job developing their junior employees. Also, company needs to update ALL of their systems that are severely outdated.
