    I worked at Tullett Prebon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great location that's easily accessible by PATH, NY Waterways and NJ-NY tunnels. Fabulous support staff that outperformed under constant stress.

    Cons

    Management did not care about the working staff. It was a, "If you don't like it, you're free to leave" mentality. Poor morale and salary reviews with frozen wages for years'.

    Advice to Management

    Open up and listen to the employee population through town hall meetings. The main thing is not to label a question by an employee as negative, which is something HR always did.


  2. "Lack of skills at senior management level"

    I worked at Tullett Prebon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good location, office building, and salary

    Cons

    Lack of training, appreciation from managers. Poor at delivering the commited promises but very good at finding excuses.

    Advice to Management

    Make employees feel appreciated and valued in order to keep them on board rather than loosing them to cut cost. Replacing an employee who does the job and lots of experience has cost them a lot. They just have to look at stuff long term and stop loosing good people for short term cost benefits.

  3. "Fast paced, very good compensation"

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

    Pros

    - It was a relatively flat structure and you could approach managing directors with ease.
    - the environment is a great atmosphere with banter amongst colleagues and everyone gets along.
    - Christmas party for staff children every year which is always a great success and a nice touch.

    Cons

    - No sinks in the kitchen and no cutlery/plates.
    - Infested with mice in the building.
    - 'Exec suite' has a new shiny layout without improving facilities for the rest of us.
    - Lack of career opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more clearly with staff and don't keep them in the dark otherwise they will leave.

    I have been working at Tullett Prebon full-time

    Pros

    Tullett's global reach offers opportunity to relocate. Tullett's compliance and legal team have the experience to navigate through the latest complex regulations. Young people entering the workforce will be exposed to Tullett's vast experience in the interdealer broker market.

    Cons

    A large corporate culture may overwhelm those who prefer a more boutique feel. An impending merger with ICAP may cause a wave of consolidation.

    Advice to Management

    The brokers are the revenue engine for Tullett. Management needs to be aware of their stresses as the markets change and the merger becomes a reality. The ability to open remote locations can open the door to more great hires as technology allows for teams to work together in different locations.
