I worked at ICAP plc

Pros

Laid back work environment, nice people. the work environment is no aggressive or uptight like at some firms like goldman sachs, the management is not too rigid or strict, they have the right balance of strictness and cool. It is small enough not for one to be just another number and big enough to be able to move ahead and have the right growth opportunities. People that come from other companies usually stay longer than they do at other companies. The work environment is friendly, laid back, and dedicated to growth.

Cons

management is too lax on some employees, too harsh on others

Advice to ManagementAdvice

hire more interns

    I worked at ICAP plc full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working in a support function I was lucky to work with some really nice people, and the office is in a fantastic location. Unfortunately I'm struggling to thing of anything else positive to say!

    Cons

    Support services lacking any clear plan or structure, no direction, all about costs and not people, broken compensation promises, very high turn over, very long hours, very political, lot's of in fighting. You get the idea....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work out what you're trying to achieve and how best to use the people you have to do so - dont just stick a body on a chair without any thought towards who they are, what their skills are, or what you actually want them to do.
