    Former Employee - Sit On Chair in Phoenix, AZ

    I worked at FXDD full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It is a really easy going place and the people are friendly and interesting to talk to. During quiet times I can even take some time to take a nap. The benefits are also really good.

    Cons

    The business has slowed down a lot, and as a result, the morale of the rest of the employees has taken a hit.
    The pay is a bit below market, but that is fair since it is so relaxing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees something to rally around so they can help you get back on the right track.

    Pros

    Provides excellent benefits and very flexible with work hours.

    Cons

    Personal performance goals are not always clearly defined because of a lack of aligned goals, strategies, and tactics between the different departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Openly share ideas and work together towards common goals.

    Pros

    Great building with amazing view of NYC.
    Some free food. Friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    Company seems to losing customers quickly, and not making any money. Layoffs occur on a frequent basis.
    Management cares little for employees.
    Salaries are far from competitive, and work can be very demanding at times.

    Former Employee - Senior Web Developer in New York, NY

    I worked at FXDD full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice people, a and clean office.

    Cons

    Company is pretty much dead, with half the people working for company laid off. Too much work for very little pay and no recognition for efforts. There is no clear direction in which the company is going other than down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop spending so much money on the expensive building. Reward the people that actually do work. Come up with a clear strategy and execute it.

    I worked at FXDD

    Pros

    Good location and a lot of different opportunities. The people were very nice and fun to work with and make time enjoyable.

    Cons

    I feel the direction of the company and employees aren't concentrated enough. I feel a more educated and dedicated workforce would do the company good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think allowing for more responsibility and development within the company may be good for morale. I also think fairer salaries may help.
