I have been working at FXCM full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Opportunity to learn if you demonstrate intelligence to the right people. If you're interested in making a lateral move to another department there's always an opportunity to do so if you do good work and get good reviews from your managers. For those who are strategic and forward-thinking there are many leadership opportunities within the firm. Most managers are relatively young.

Cons

If you get stuck with a manager that doesn't recognize your talent, you may have reached a dead end.

Pay is lower than other firms of similar size, but it has started to narrow the gap in some departments.

    Pros

    Great place to get your feet wet. Great opportunity to learn and grow. This is the best company to learn about fx trading.

    Cons

    Low pay, lack of upward mobility and trust. Unlikely to receive promotion. Do not get caught up here as you will have trouble leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees more to retain better talent. The trial by fire and use of inexperienced talent can get us into trouble in the future.
