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

    Pros

    Great place to work, if you make money/ hit your monthly number, no one bothers you, essentially your own boss

    Cons

    Make sure you hit your monthly number or else your out- probably could go under the radar for a few months- but pointless if you have no $ coming in

    Advice to Management

    All good

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at GFI Group (Hanover, NH) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Behavioral interview. Person who interviewed me was from same school, so asked me about school things. It's been several weeks and I did not get a response back. Sounds like a close group of people if nothing else.
