    I worked at FXCM

    Pros

    Good health insurance and life insurance

    Cons

    pay interns 10.00 an hr
     Nepotism is unbelievable.
    Management is very out of touch..
    Jobs are bait and switch
    HR Department is only for company - beware...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do monthly reviews of VPs and HR from employees . The VPs are inexperienced and should be reviewed and sent to CEO. Things would be different if CEO would quit turning their head . Look at all the good people, they are gone!
