Pros

HIGH pay, annual leaves, central location

Cons

- too many confusing hierarchy which you lost track whose the boss and thus no organisation chart...
- there is no clear direction where the co is moving to.
- Got to know on public holiday.
- leaders with zero leadership skill.
- too many people not contributing to the company.

    I worked at Newedge full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - I genuinely cannot think of any pros to working here

    Cons

    - Top performers were fired because a threat to managment
    - Top performers were fired so that management could then try and take ownership of their clients (although typically failed with clients going elsewhere)
    - Underperformers kept because (i) non-threatening to management and (ii) had low self-esteem
    - Management under-reporting revenue of brokers to avoid having to pay them fair commission
    - Physical abuse with brokers attacking each other on the desk, led to an intimidating environment, especially for women
    - Constant discussion (dragging out over 2 years) of re-locating you to different offices meant instability, continuously feeling unsettled, and never being able to plan your life in advance
    - Zero communication. Lack of communication is a power tool used by management.
    - Many senior managers from middle-office background and do not understand the business of what front office desk brokers actually do
    - and more and more...
