Pros

Laid back environment with good work life balance. Smart people and relatively motivated workforce. Part of a larger more growth intensive company.

Cons

Ultra-political management team. Limited opportunities for growth. Extreme distrust of other areas of the organization. The business seems to be in the dying throes of being a formidable force on the street. There is lack of innovation in new product areas and a complete disregard for the ideas of others. It's all about being politically connected in this division. ICAP as a whole, however, is a completely different story than the lackluster Electronic Broking Division. Great company to work for.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop your people and provide them opportunities to innovate.

    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
