    Pros

    Interesting work; flexible time, dynamic

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Lots of dinners and drinks - fun crowd. Connections throughout the city. Glamorous New York City life.

    No real fulfillment. All about bottom-line and the commission. Women are objectified. Not for the introverted/not cut-throat.

    I worked at Icap Services North America full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    When 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 .

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

    The 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 .
