    Pros

    I can think of multiple reasons why BGC Group is a great company but I will just list the main few I think benefits those looking to finding employment with us.
    1. Independence
    If you are looking for a place with a standard operating procedure on what to do and what to say, this is not for you. There was no guideline on specific steps needed to achieve successful results, every step taken towards my achievements were in my hands and I had full control over it. If there was any I wasn't clear about, my managers are always more then happy to help with my un-ending requests.
    PS: Sometimes it always better to ask for help rather than waiting for help to appear.

    2. Openness
    The management has always been open to exploring new suggestion and ideas (regardless of how crazy it sounds) and have given me multiple opportunities to grow my expertise in different areas of interest and the independence to manage my own projects, seeing it from start to end.

    3. It is okay to fail
    A company is a business and, at the end of the day, needs projects or employees to show productive results and it is the nature of every workplace. But BGC has given me a safe place to fail, learn/reflect on the mistakes of my failures and improve or better my future projects.

    4. Awesome people!
    The comrades in a company are essential for every individual's growth. The team is constantly open to debates over our work to ensure the best outcomes. It gave me the opportunity to learn from other perspectives that I may have overlooked or not realised. Criticisms are given objectively as well, to help grow the team as a whole and accepting these criticisms objectively is what I learn from the BGC team.

    Cons

    Every company has their cons and BGC Group is no angel either.
    1. The management can be overly direct with their words which may not be for the faint of hearts.
    2. As an SME, career progression can be a challenge.
    3. Unfortunately, there isn't Study/ examination leave so it can be a slight challenge for those taking a part-time degree.

    Advice to Management

    As the company expands, mistakes in expansion steps and resistance among employees against essential changes are common. Communication on expansion plans and management of those resistant against change can be further improved.
