What is the work environment like at GAIN Capital?

Pros

- I am a new employee to GAIN Capital Australia and have found the culture to be very warm, welcoming and dynamic. Every day is different which is fantastic as you learn a lot in a short amount of time. - Australian employees get more beneficial annual leave balances than the national employment standard which is a big bonus! - Working in a flexible and fun WeWork environment which offers the team some alternate working spaces, shared facilities and increases the amount of social events per year. - Working here gives you great exposure to global offices and stakeholders. - GAIN provides wonderful entry level jobs to graduates that are keen to kick start their career

Cons

I have been here a short amount of time but so far I have had no problems or issues with culture or the Company

How is the office food at GAIN Capital?

Pros

Free food if you work late and maybe a bagel here and there

Cons

It's a shame, the company has potential but it will never be successful as long as the same person is heading the support group in Bedminster. All they do is look at numbers and not at actual work being done. To make matters worse, pay can't be lower, outsourcing to other countries to pay less and layoffs. Working at that company literally ate my soul it was so miserable with no chance of career advancement if you are not a brown noser who becomes part of the "in" group. Leaving this place felt like getting out of an abusive relationship. I had no idea what a workplace should have been like until I finally got out. It was tough taking off a day or two in short notice for god sakes!

What are working conditions like at GAIN Capital?

Pros

The training is good for someone who is new to the industry.

Cons

The company offers poor pay and benefits. The internal communication is very poor, and the management doesn't care about improving the coordination between teams. The internal opportunities are also minimal. Not a company you want to stick to for years. Even the office space is small.

What is typically worn or allowed to be worn at work at GAIN Capital?

Pros

- There are still some good people left, although dwindling in numbers. - Get paid on time. - Smart casual dress code.

Cons

- Just a job, not for those looking to build their career. - Zero investment into employee development - training in the form of "get it done", "look on this free website" and "Google it". This approach can work for some tasks but does not apply to all forms of knowledge. - Cliques exist, do not expect interesting work if you are not part of it. - Multiple re-orgs in the space of a few years, different structure and faces - same chaos. - Every project ends up as a last minute rush with management cracking the whip for employees to do the impossible. Excuses are made for the rush each time.

Advice to Management

Stop focusing on copying the competition - come up with some of your own ideas.

Smart casual dress code.
