Pros

Nice group of people to work with

Cons

Management is "small time". No one from a big Wall Street firm to lend perspective.

Advice to Management

Hire someone in Head Office who has worked for a big firm.

    Pros

    Its fun, good location close to Liverpool St, possibility to move through the different products and learn, big investment and technology. Good salary and holidays.

    Cons

    Brokers don't like screens, some management only supports it from when it starts to be profitable.

    Advice to Management

    Comunicate more with middle management. Some of you have to look at the bigger picture, you have to sow before you collect the fruits...

  2. Great Technology

    Pros

    Great Tech, innovative management, good work environment, International presence with ambition to go out more. Great tech allows you to get into products you normally wouldn't see.

    Cons

    Absolutely the worst payout structure in the Street. If you have good clients look away at other shops before going to them. GFI feels its because of GFI that you are successful and not because of your relationships. If they offer you stock options, run. Pay a good money for a lawyer before you sign their contract.

    Advice to Management

    You have lost some good employees that have left and gone on to make incredibly more money because of your low payouts. Bump it up and they will come.
