    Pros

    I have joint BGC Group in early 2017. This workplace is full of love and care from senior/managers as well as from your collegues. They give me their trust and confidence with their heart on completing assigned tasks. Here you will find lots of opportunities to develop not only your working skills but also your personality making you into a 360 talent and a better person. So far, I enjoyed pretty much working with my manager and my team. Besides, their management is also transparent enough which provide every staff a clear direction on the short/long-term development plan making sure every one of us to have the same direction and goals with the company.

    Cons

    This company is too good for lazy and bad people. If you are looking only for a "job" and get paid every month for nothing, this company might not suit you.

    Advice to Management

    I wish we could develop and improve together. Don't let us down.

    BGC Group not just recruiting candidates for their leading clients, but are sowing the seeds of their reputation in global market.

    Best hearts and minds of the people who work with BGC Group.

Still keeps good rapport with recruiter to maintain professional network. All The Best to HK Management (JoJo & her team).
