    Pros

    Majority of people are very nice, hard working and knowledgeable about the business they're in. It can be a fun and relaxed environment because the firm still has a feel of a start up, even though the firm has grown quite large in the last few years. Depending on the immediate manager's philosophy, the company can offer flexible work arrangements and time off, when necessary.

    Cons

    Company has grown a lot and it's beginning to feel like a big corporation with its beauracracy and expectation of face time from employees. Senior management only cares about highest producing individuals, the rest get treated as nobody's. Support areas also don't get much management attention or support. As a result, there are many unhappy employees especially in support functions who do not bring in major $$ for the firm.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others how you would like to get treated. ICAP is not an investment bank although I had that feel at times.

    Pros

    Technical learning curve is good because of a few sound professionals. It you manage your superiors and their expectations correctly, you can have a laid back environment. Also they have not had many lay offs, so you are secure in this market.

    Cons

    Management is very wishy washy in terms of understanding time-work ratio, recognizing accomplishments, rewarding accomplishments, approachability and decision making capabilities. For instance the management thinks the number of hours at work is more important than either quality of work or accomplishments over and above your yearly goals. There is also a lot of politics that influence the workings of the technology team, information is not passed around to team mates and is kept as privileged information for control, a few blame games and numerous coffee room maneuvering which has in the past two years taken a toll on employees in general. Benefits are average to sub average.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure management incompetence is not tried to be pushed down the ladder and that all employees are being treated fairly.
