I have been working at FXCM as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Work environment, employees, work ethic, and overall ability to be proactive.

Cons

Limited upward mobility and no clear focus on tasks assigned.

Advice to Management

Have a deeper emphasis on ensuring the ground level employees are doing what needs be done and learning to propel them in years to come with their careers.

    I have been working at FXCM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Trading nerds are very welcome here!
    Some positions allow work-from-home flexibility.
    If you're mobile, there are positions available in other countries- sometimes long term.
    The people that make FXCM are easy to get along with. Not much internal drama or fighting.

    Cons

    There is a high burn out rate for the entry-level service and sales positions.
    There is a lack of timely communications between teams/departments.
    Advancement is difficult for the majority of new hires because internal growth is slower than ideal.

    Advice to Management

    Involve staff in decision making- don't just lay out what's going to change but rather get insight and input ahead of policy/organizational change, let employees see the thought process and contribute solutions.

    Pros

    Working for FXCM has been a good experience. Management is very competent and accessible. The company is full of respectable and impressive people. Keeping an eye on the forex market and knowing about trading is necessary.

    This job provides exposure and opportunities that will prove especially valuable if the FX Market continues to grow in popularity.

    Cons

    The job is very fast paced and can be a grind. The upside to this is that anyone in this position will learn a lot, quickly.
