    I have been working at GAIN Capital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very open environment that enables growth and on job learning opportunities with no limitations especially for those who are self motivated and want to make an impact and make a difference. Friendly environment with focus on team work and collaboration. The environment encourages being fearless and supports learning from mistakes culture. Every single employee contribution counts.

    Cons

    Can get challenging for folks who expect growth on the basis of tenure and or lack passion about their workplace and last but not the least lack Can do attitude and or who rely on others to solve their problems consistently and blame others for their failures and or lack of success. Lacks respect for individuals who are not results oriented

    Advice to Management

    Help mature the hiring process to ensure we hire folks with the right attitude and not just skill. Encourage and reward the right behaviour and at the same point discourage
