    I have been working at IG full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Autonomy in your daily work, as most of the time you end up being left alone with your unachievable objective.

    Cons

    Base salary well below industry standards which places you in a very uncomfortable position every year before bonus pot is announced.
    High pressure coming from regulators, which senior management is unable to cope with. Led to unhealthy turnover among employees.
    Especially with the launch of the new Krakòw hub where a significant part of UK and local jobs were relocated.

    Advice to Management

    Better respect your employees who in the end are the true value of the company. Keep long-term perspectives in mind rather than short-term objectives (things change drastically every quarter - like budgets, teams, resources or products).

    Pros

    Nice coworkers and free fruits

    Cons

    Always have to watch your back as management tends to fire people with the fancy term of "Restructuring". Worst senior management i ever encountered on earth. Whole industry is facing challenge while management is playing Game of Throne style backstabbing each other and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Might as well close down the business. Brexit is not your nightmare, your management people are.
