    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.

    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 3 years)

    Pros

    FTSE have a huge brand but it's still a relatively small company so there is still some of the small company benefits to working there and they provide gym membership to the best gym in the world!! It's generally a good atmosphere and the other staff are friendly.

    Cons

    FTSE was in a period of growth and change so they made lots of the 'old guard' redundant which created bad atmosphere. Also, they have so many managers there it's difficult to know who you are reporting to for what. Also depending on who your boss was the working practices differed immensely, some people in our team worked long days with no reward or recognition, it was just expected.
