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

    Pros

    Flexible timings , brilliant people to work with, not strenuous tight timelines, cool environment, good technology stack

    Cons

    Management direction missing, invest 2 years in something new, hires lots of people for it, and then suddenly throws everyone onboard, scraps the project , hire and fire culture .

    Advice to Management

    Have your plans clear and sound, dont just fire people out of politics, you have been losing good people. Once they hired a CTO and within a year fired him, that poor guy is working as a VP in a bank now
