Former Employee – worked at ICAP (London)
Pros – ICAP gives you a lot of exposure in terms of macro economics. If you just don't limit yourself to the job you are supposed to be doing and get into casual relations with your clients, there is tons to be learnt from the industry leaders.
Cons – limited industry scope. dying nowadays. you face tough competetion from electronic broking. As in every other broking job, it sees unfair at times. Your success is largely dependent on the number, size and type of clients you've got. You get focused to only one niche industry with limited self growth, ignoring all the other talents you possess.
Advice to Senior Management – Department heads should not be appointed according to the revenues they bring in, but their leadership abilities and popularity.
