I have been working at FXCM

Pros

good benefits
learn a ton about FX/CFD's
exposure to very knowledgeable and motivated people (just not management)

Cons

nonexistent upward movement
no bonus structure
unclear goals
lack of corporate structure
inability to provide feedback for improvement
disconnect between management and the front-line
zero management experience

Advice to ManagementAdvice

make sure you know what is going on, understand what you are suppose to do and let your teams do what they are supposed to do. provide clear guidelines for hitting goals and pay bonus when goals are hit. setup systems for feedback to easily get from the front-lines upward. avoid promoting incompetent people.
