    Pros

    The commission structure used to be good but heard that has changed. Strong camaraderie among colleagues.

    Cons

    Weak management who do not lead by example. No proper training and development for employees. Immature culture akin to school environment. Values seem to be simply for show.

    Advice to Management

    Get off your high horse.

    Pros

    Food from pantry but well, very limited choices. Cheapo biscuit like sky crackers. I think the view is not bad too. FLYER- CAN SEE FIREWORKS

    Cons

    They tell you do your best, BUT SORRY ITS THEIR BEST. So it means u can only go home when the MD leave. If not you'll be judge accordingly to what time you leave. So please bring extra clothing, invest in a portable bed and bring your essential toiletries and stay in the office forever.

    Advice to Management

    Management really need to reflect.

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

    Pros

    None. Nothing at all.
    Oh; if I have to choose.... they have a great view of Singapore Flyer.

    During National Day, you can view the firework.

    Cons

    They said the new structure will have work life balance. They post the job ad for new Join also indicating work life balance. However, once you leave... even at 7pm(official time : 8:30am - 6:00pm) you will get a terrible scolding from your boss. Contradicting eh?

    You can't voice your opinion at all. If not, you'll be seen as a bad hire in the company!

    Advice to Management

    How about buying some beds for your employee since you don't allow them to go home?
