I worked at BGC Group full-time (Less than a year)
Had a very nice leader who really tried to help
Nice office building in the middle of CBD
Lots of food options nearby
Lots of backstabbing
Company culture only wants to see result despite it not a realistic target
Long hours, very stressful
Pay incentives are not realistically reachable
Advice to Management
Lots of new people always go in and out of the company, because the management doesn't know how to retain people of value when they choose to leave.
Doesn't know how to help people who put in effort and time to improve and upper management will only threaten to say ur position in the company is unstable because u can't deliver even though u tried all the options they told u to try even after asking them for suggestions and help.
The true tragedy is that the people who put in heart and effort are not being appreciated by the company, and are being reprimanded. Many choose to leave because of the heavy pressure and lack of empathy. Will be good if upper upper management look deep into their hearts and think about why turnover rate of the company is so high. So what if your company is listed when you are not treating your employees with empathy. Nowadays, pay is not as important as being heard and understood at work. Don't create an environment where people want to leave. (Don't think we don't know u talk bad about employees behind our back upper management)
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at BGC Group (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.
I received a mail asking for a phone screen interview. Few days after that I had the phone screen and finally I received an email telling me that I was rejected for the position.
