Pros

middle management, great group of people, trying really hard to make it work with the small resources they have.

Cons

Senior leadership has no vision. They only care about themselves. CEO has no clue of whats going on. No Training or development opportunities. The president of company left and now is a chaotic environment. Company laid off more than a 100 people between October and December 2019, and plans to continue doing so.

Advice to Management

Advice to the board. Wake Up! Your "CMO" and your CEO are killing the company, blaming the market.

Senior leadership has no vision.

Pros

Office location Free drinks on the last Friday of the month providing you can get to them before the vultures do.

Cons

Poor leadership Pass the buck trend No ownership when things go wrong and always looking to point the finger HR are useless and incompetent; Nobody from HR in the UK stays longer than a year because of how bad this place is. As an employee, if you are here for more than a year every time you go to HR you find yourself explaining the situation again and again because there is a new HR replacement. They just don't get it! Save yourself the trouble. The HR US team are not interested in London issues and when they do miraculously get involved they are just clueless just like the rest of the HR LON team. Blind leading the blind comes to mind. Avoid at all costs.

Advice to Management

None - they don't listen anyway

Poor leadership

Pros

The only "pros" are the employees who have given so much patience and understanding to this company.

Cons

A very dysfunctional company led by incompetent CEO, Glenn H. Stevens. Higher management care less about their employees and have zero involvement in helping towards an organic growth in the company. They also provide no proper training and throw you in the deep end. You have too much on your plate to ever catch up while being micromanaged. Would strongly recommend not working for them.

Pros

Being able to work in this environment gives you the training to be tougher.

Cons

At first, working for a foreign exchange company can be really exciting. The environment is very fast and dynamic. But it gets tiring and exhausting as you go along. The managers are impervious to their people's suffering from a job that is so demanding.

Advice to Management

Give the people some space and time to breathe.
