    Good work ethics and comprehensive followups. Co-workers and recruiters followup with potential applicants at various steps of the recruitment process.

    I have been working at BGC Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1) The colleagues are friendly and helpful. Although it is a sales environment, we help one another instead. It is not that competitive. We will ensure that everyone progress together.

    2) The young environment - high energy every day

    Cons

    1) Lousy working process
    2) Very manual payroll calculation
    3) inflexible to accomodate to client's request
    4) Too cost-conscious
    5) Changes are always made before informing everyone
    6) Inexperience HR
    7) Top Management Does not value sales support staff

    Advice to Management

    1) First thing first, to get your work processes iron out.
    2) Time to change your HR, the HR advisor is not helping too.
    3) Listen to your employee's opinion could do the company some good.
