    Do not appreciate good work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Jersey City, NJ

    ProsWhen I started with this company over 20 years ago it was great place to work . There was growth for advancement and it felt like a family atmosphere . That is all gone now with the people they employ in managerial roles that do not know what you do on a daily basis .

    ConsThere is high turnover rate with the company . If you are in the age range between 40's and 50's they force you out and have no feelings on how to treat people . The company does not appreciate good work or loyalty . You don't agree with their company politics you are done .

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe company should take a good look at who they employ . Human Resource has a lot to with the hiring of back office .They make decisions where people in upper management should be doing this job. Also they should hire within the company but that policy has stopped .

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Worked there loyally for 22 years. Got "downsized" at 53 two months after getting a raise and a bonus.

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) Jersey City, NJ

    ProsWhen this company was Garban it was a great place to work. When it became ICAP it became a soulless company that treats its employees like office equipment.

    ConsNo job security, no employee loyalty, don't make the mistake of turning 50.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart treating your employees like people.

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

    lukewarm Linux trading application support engineer

    Linux Trading Applications Support (Current Employee) Jersey City, NJ

    ProsThe work was easy, there were some days that I did not do anything but surf the internet all day. Actually - sometimes I did not do anything for days at a time. It seemed like one big inside joke. Congenial work environment - alot of old people, and for finance that is refreshing. I liked alot of the people there - once you get in you are like family. If you are of Indian descent - you have it made (I am Russian).

    ConsThe work was easy, there were some days that I did not do anything but surf the internet all day!
    I woked in the voice dept. I think that the money and the action is in the Electronic department. The guys in the voice team don't have anything to do - but they like it that way. So it has been my experience where there is not enought work to go around, politics fills the void. So it you are politically savy, dont like to work hard or grow this place is for you !

    The manager and the senoir support guys in linux technical support know that they have a cushy job, and they know exactly how to protect it from change, improvement or efficiency.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't change a thing - linux technical support at ICAP is the best job in finance.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    great work-life balance, but no career growth

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosflexible hours, short commute, nice and easy going people to work with

    Consno career growth, good for end of career people because you would not go anywhere. Plenty of time to spend with family.

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

     

    A professional team of caring individuals.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSalary is great as are the employees. This is a company in which you can learn and grow at your own pace.

    ConsThe location is the only downside that I can speak to. Being located in Jersey City, you have to contend with New York and New Jersey traffic.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would not change a thing.

     

    Poor upper management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPay was decent, hours were decent

    ConsUpper management didn't carry about entry-level employees
