Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Vice President

I have been working at Phaidon International full-time for more than a year

Pros

I've been working at Phaidon for a year now and having left my previous employer after 10 years, I've learned more under the roof of PI than in a decade+ with my prior company. It's ambitious,... challenging, opportunistic, and has a meritocratic environment that's tough not to love. It cares about you being a part of it, so it repays the favor. Very thankful to have taken the leap of faith into a new company and career and it wouldn't have been right if not for Phaidon.

Cons

Communication can be a challenge. It's a global company, expanding fast and applauding the creativity so time zones and geography can cause a limited time to collaborate and because it employs... intelligent people who care about those things the same, you can have a lot of ideas coming from a lot of different areas. It's going through a lot of the fun nuances involved with a fast-growing company so been fun to watch the transition.

Advice to Management

Keeping a strong focus on the current employees & up and coming managers is equally as important as the new employees joining.

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at GQR Global Markets full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

1. Earning potential like no other - Young professionals earning huge numbers. 2. Huge learning opportunities - from classroom to coaching, from learning apps to Harvard Business School courses. 3.... Significant opportunity to progress into leadership, in a few short years. 4. Immense travel opportunities - Amazon, Vietnam, Croatia & Jet Sets. 5. Great culture - all the team hang out almost every weekend, as well as during the week.

Cons

1. Pressure - no gaps to slip through here. They will always be on your case if you're underperforming. 2. Growth pains - getting things done can be laborious because the company is growing quickly... and figuring out some things as they go along. 3. Turbulence - live and die by the sword. Celebrate the good times like no other firms i've worked for, yet pressure dials when you go through a 'sales storm'.

Advice to Management

Keep recognising and investing in your people and they will reciprocate. Where possible, try to recognise the qualitatives as much as the quantitatives.
