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.
