    A dying brokerage

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Jersey City, NJ

    I worked at Tullett Prebon (more than 5 years)

    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.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Jersey City, NJ
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Jersey City, NJ

    I have been working at Tullett Prebon (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Tullett Prebon full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flat hierarchy so good access and interaction with senior staff. Generally a good place to work with nice people.

    Cons

    Constant cost cutting and pay freezes has lowered morale significantly, with many good members of staff leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out the nepotism and look after the good loyal staff that the company has but improving their basic salaries and making career progression and reality.

    I worked at Tullett Prebon full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    aggressive, rewarding and challenging but fair

    Cons

    maybe too aggressive for the light hearted and can be a very repetitive lifestyle. client entertainment can be viewed as an extra bonus or a health curse!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    invest in your staff and view them as assets rather than just squeeze them.

    I worked at Tullett Prebon

    Pros

    Some good folks working there. Enjoyed working with them and people were generally helpful.

    Cons

    Office is in Jersey City so kind of annoying to get there from the city everyday. Reputation as a second tier broker made it difficult sometimes.
