    I worked at Tullett Prebon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. The working environment was very lax and the people were generally friendly. 2. Most managers were easy going 3. Very comfortable work/life balance, got to leave early when it was slow.

    Cons

    1. Very difficult to rise up within the company, unless you have a strong connection to higher ups. 2. Raises were non-existent and bonuses decreased almost every year. 3. A lot of "managers" had the title, but knew nothing about managing people. 4. The lax environment paved way to lazy employees and people that were not willing to learn and grow. Working with these types of people was difficult.

    Advice to Management

    1. Listen more to your employee needs and compensate them appropriately. 2. Instate a quarterly review process so that your employees know where they stand.

    I worked at Tullett Prebon full-time

    Pros

    The work life balance is very reasonable (not a lot of overtime), and the benefit of working for a European headquartered company is that the vacation policy is very generous. Most people I worked with were very nice and helpful in solving any business issues.

    Cons

    The business has been struggling so there is a very strong emphasis on cost management and reduction. Salaries in many cases remain frozen even for high-performing employees.

    Advice to Management

    Since it is difficult to reward employees financially during a cost cutting mode, try to find other ways to keep people motivated so that employee morale doesn't suffer.

    Pros

    Great training for a broker. Competitive working environment. Helpful resources available for personal inquiries.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy of a large firm impedes business development. Large producers for the firm assume managerial roles, which they are ill equipped for.

    Advice to Management

    Managing Directors should assume an active hands on managerial approach for the desks under their umbrella

    Pros

    I no longer work their.

    Cons

    Cronyism and avarice out of control. As someone else mentioned, brokers get promoted to managers. That strategy does not translate into great management. Highturnover, reported to eight managers in 6.5 yrs.

    Great work life balance, pretty decent pay, plenty of vacation days

    Pros

    Benefit days given are great.

    Cons

    Back office employees are under appreciated. Front office receives bonuses while they tell back office that the business is not doing well enough to at least get the same bonus from prior years. Management only cares of the work more than your safety. During Hurricane Sandy and a huge winter storm, management was desperate to get employees in although they were not in.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the moral of the back office employees.
