    Unstable mgmt, office politics, fast-paced, cut throat

    Broker (Former Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsIf you want to experience working for one of the biggest inter dealer brokers in the world and get a sense of how things used to run in the glory days, work here.

    ConsBe ready to deal with office politics, cut throat colleagues, overly strict and inefficient compliance (also dealing with ongoing public investigations and lawsuits), very budget conscious, no communication with management. In addition to these ICAP specific issues, the industry will struggle with banks doing less business and more regulations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication for starters.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great time, not long term career path!

    Summer Intern (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsGreat time, lots of going out and make great friendships. Also excellent culture of feedback. Huge bonuses very quickly. If you wont to work in a bank, you get good exposure and contacts

    ConsYou are working alongside many who don't even have a degree which would suggest it is not very technical. Also don't think it is easy to move elsewhere for career. No long term career security

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
