    Pros

    Casual attire-nice to work in NJ

    Cons

    Absolutely no job security or loyalty. No teamwork, you work as an individual within your group and you better keep up your revenue because they will cut your salary every month.

    Pros

    After office hour client building, fast-paced environment, amazing people. Really a good sense of community within the desks they grow to be like your family.

    Cons

    unfulfilling at times, when market is slow your day drags. The day to day job is not as exciting as it seems.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be a bit more transparent about where they believe the company is moving and how to shape the company in a way that can battle market shocks.

    Cons

    Future is uncertain since brokerage (and especially voice brokerage) industry is going down

    Advice to Management

    Bureaucratization is growing up and chocking, ICAP is not a behemoth like Morgan Stanley or Goldman, and cannot afford so many middle people
