    I worked at FXCM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management is responsive and attentive. People are nice, the culture is competitive but not mean spirited. I worked there for 3 years and simply did not see a future, but I did not leave because I was dissatisfied with anything in particular. I was sorry to hear that there were dishonest practices at the highest level, but I can attest that during my time there, the culture was always appeared to be attuned to the needs of the clients and fair practices. If I were still in the same industry, I would consider working there again.

    Cons

    The way the culture is set up, the way you get into a different department or to a higher level is by putting on a show with how hard you can work, plain and simple. Or, find ways to inflate the appearance of your performance. I'm sure it's like that at other companies too. But it would be nice if there were advancement opportunities that relied more on training and placement based on aptitude and preference rather than using promotions and lateral movements as a carrot to extract as much toil as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to reward more than just sales numbers, find better ways to train internally, and you can increase the firms ability to leverage employees who have other skill sets, aptitudes and desires beyond the cookie cutter role structure.
