    Pros

    Good entry level pay bc of bonuses. 45k + $700-2k a quarter if you meet your goals.

    Cons

    Micro managed. Extremely stressful and little breaks to take a breather. Expect to not stop talking to clients for 8 hours straight.

    Pros

    Bolstered my ability in sales. Lower level management is very hands-on with their employees and knowledgeable about the FX market. They will work closely with you to develop your weaknesses and turn them into strengths. Overall, I think everyone here truly believes in this company and its ability to grow and outperform its competitors.

    Cons

    Increasing workload, while significantly decreasing employee compensation is not a recipe for success. It became very clear during my time with the company that the CEO's primary concern is the majority shareholders' stock price increasing, and has absolutely no regard for the bottom line employees not already vested in the company. While there were some highly talented and very committed employees in this company when I first started, they, as well as I, have all now left due to the above mentioned reason. This is quite disconcerting. Low growth opportunity due to an over saturated upper management team is not very motivating. Lastly, the company's culture needs a defibrillator, it has flat lined.

    Advice to Management

    Remember where you started in the company. Promising me a paycheck tomorrow doesn't help my paycheck today. If you ever read this feedback, please make some changes.

    Pros

    -Great management (very knowledgable) -Co. is top of industry -flat org -strong strategic planning -great learning opportunity for industry (FX) and specific business field (ops, sales, marketing, compliance, etc) -productive workforce -diverse workforce -international for a relatively small company

    Cons

    -lack of leadership (managers are great at managing but have limited leadership skills) -lack of company culture (work environment is like the stereotypical office) -lacking in compensation: relatively low pay and ok benefits

    Advice to Management

    develop a company culture and invest in your employees (develop internally). Strategically in an external sense, FXCM has done so great.

    Pros

    The company is a Market leader in it's industry. There is lots of room for learning and growth within the company. Management is very approachable and cares about their employees.

    Cons

    Salaries are fair, not tops around. But for most the other benefits and good salary, outweigh any financial gains available elsewhere.
