    I worked at ICAP full-time

    Pros

    At the top, they seem to be into innovation and steering the company overall towards that.

    Cons

    It can be a ruthless atmosphere at times, especially for someone who's new to the business and industry. There is not a great system of mentorship or guidance, especially in an atmosphere that's facing industrywide challenges, and one that's trying to come to grips with innovation that's sometimes negatively effecting the business. No room for learning or autonomy.

    Advice to Management

    Create more effective feedback channels so that your employees can work constructively to support each other. Provide ways for your employees to take a break from their day to day and learn more about the industry and opportunities within the company.

    Pros

    Great Salary, nice amount of vacation days

    Cons

    Had a terrible manager who'd report every negative thing she thought I'd do wrong to HR. I never knew about it until after a few months of employment when they were trying to get rid of me. HR never tried to intervene. There was no type of review process as there is at more well known and established companies. I never got to defend myself, it was my managers word over everything.

    Advice to Management

    When supervisors are making wild claims about their direct reports in a very early time frame from when they first started, HR should relay this info to the direct report so that they are aware of the claims/accusations and try to correct them.
