    Pros

    Strong performers get rewarded well. Not much training is offered, but there is a weekly discussion session that sets a direction for everybody which really helps.

    Cons

    Cannot work at your own pace. They literally need to see you concentrating on something on your desk for as long as you are in office. Not much bigger career opportunities as it is still a small company.

    Pros

    FGI is a great place to work. The work atmosphere is very comfortable, everyone is very easy to get along with, the office is beautiful, and the work day goes by very quickly since there is always plenty of work to do.

    Cons

    Its difficult to think of something negative to say about FGI. Its very fact pace so it may seem very challenging to some people.

    Management is doing a great job and care about the employees

    Pros

    FGI has a very fast paced work environment which makes days go by quickly and ensures that there is never a boring day. The insurance package is unbelievably exceptional. The people at this company are easy to work with and the company focuses on collaborative efforts. There are a lot of opportunities for moving up from within the company, and FGI offers the tools for training within the industry. I also love the location; it's a great office space in the financial district with large windows and decently sized work spaces.

    Cons

    It's difficult to come up with cons for working for FGI. The environment at times can be a little too fast paced and can feel a little overwhelming. The dress code can appear to be inconsistent.

    Advice to Management

    Casual Fridays. Discounted gym memberships. Keep a close eye on employees to ensure that nobody is being overworked and that work can be evenly distributed.

    Pros

    Amazing managament team where upward mobility is possible. They truly care about the employees. The growth is strong and I have learned more than ever possible at a big firm.

    Cons

    Commuting to Manhattan stinks. I wish they had an office in New Jersey.

    Keep up the good work!
