Pros

Work-life balance is great, health benefits are OK but very expensive

Cons

Where do I start?
Icap EBS is like nothing I have seen in my life and if I shared even an ounce what goes on there you'd think I am making it up. No leadership, no vision, no strategy, no competency, no loyalty, no growth, no future.
The only concern is cost-cutting at the expense of everything.
I'd run from any job offers, I would not recommend this place to anyone and I cannot wait to leave!
I would rate the company -5 stars if I could. There is no consideration for process, policy, proper management of ideas. The leadership is senior in title, but extremely inexperienced in running a company.
The company offers health benefits, which you need in case you are at the brink of a nervous breakdown caused by the crazy circus you will report to everyday. No 401K matching, benefits are very expensive. No consideration for diversity, mentorship, networking etc.
I can go on for days, but the bottom line is avoid this place at all cost.

Advice to Management

Hire some competent management, at least someone who knows what process is and why we should follow it

  2. Generally a meritocracy but little leveraging of potential synergies across business units.

    Pros

    Only technology pays higher. ICAP pays good benefits and despite the isolated location, provides meal subsidies, occasional entertainment opps. Great offices and services.

    Cons

    New York is actually Jersey City - great if you live in Jersey, NYC, Staten Island or Rockland County, NY. Long Island and CT are difficult. ICAP shuttles ease the pain somewhat.

    Advice to Management

    Too many silos that don't talk to or know of each other. Phone directory is a joke. One would think such a firm would have an ongoing sales training program.
