How are the career development opportunities at IG?

Pros

Some of the people there are decent and honest

Cons

No real direction given; no prioritisation of initatives and instead an expectation from middle and senior management to do everything with zero compromise, regardless of the pressure and stresses that places upon employees. Lead to so many evening and weekend shifts with little recognition or thanks. The only people to progress/remain unscathed are ones who were there in the 'good old days' years ago and are therefore untouchable, regardless of how they behave and act towards other people. There is absolutely no chance of career progression or promotion unless you're in the 'inner circle' and it is nauseating observing how people climb over others to get there, regardless of their suitability for the roles on offer. There is a blame culture there with people happy to throw each other under the bus, which has created a toxic atmosphere, leading to many of the good people jumping ship in recent months.

How is management perceived at IG?

Pros

I joined IG with good intentions but was sadly disappointed. The company has good benefits but the management and the people make any benefits irrelevant. The company and especially the marketing department has very exclusive attitudes to a point where you will get judged quickly and unfairly. There is a word for people who judge others unfairly and it’s not complementary.

Cons

The work in the marketing department is painfully dull and the people have exclusive attitudes, so if you don’t fit in you will be managed out. Also I asked for flexible working hours during my interview and the Hiring Manager said that I can come in a 9:30, but after I accepted the role she said I need to be at work by 9am. This is an example of the unprofessionalism prevalent at IG. For these reasons I will not recommend this company.

Advice to Management

None

The company has good benefits but the management and the people make any benefits irrelevant.
