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

    Pros

    Layback and lets employees just do their job without too much restrictions.

    Cons

    UK centric. Not a lot of room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with non management employees.

    Pros

    An international company with offices in US, Europe and Asia.

    Cons

    Micromanaged with information flowing one way only- up
    Frequent reorganization constantly resulting in downsizing followed by bursts of hiring
    Human Resources department behind the times with antiquated systems

    Advice to Management

    Change your make-up and your culture or you will never develop the labor force to move forward in in industry that is moving forward quickly


  4. "Permanent employee for 2 years"

    Pros

    FTSE was a really great place to work with an excellent atmosphere and some really great people. Lovely offices in Canary Wharf and some excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Once the LSE took over this changed and things really headed south. A lot of very good long term employees either left or got made redundant.

    I worked at FTSE Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Sociable and good benefits. Senior LSEG management are visionary and have insight to diversify the group with an array of B2C acquisitions

    Cons

    LSEG visionary does not trickle down to FTSE management. Middle management have little/no people management skills and this is reflected in high churn.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at FTSE Group full-time

    Pros

    many hard-working and smart, kind people working below the senior management team. Lots of capability and energy to do things well. Good products and huge client base.

    Cons

    senior management team is a group of "yes-men" who put the bottom line ahead of integrity, clients and associates. Great ideas are shushed and people are afraid to disagree with the FTSE CEO. People are underpaid across the board - many people not been given a raise for more than 7 years although being characterized as strong performers. Head of client facing team says vulgar things about clients in team meetings.

    Advice to Management

    the dictatorship must be removed. only Roulet and the board can do that. Profits likely too high to take appropriate action.
