    I worked at IG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Having worked at the company during their graduate scheme, I liked the serious attitude towards training the future talent. The company provides training resources via induction to the business sections, occasional lectures and a vast array of material available on Safari Books Online.

    The graduates are slowly eased into the work and progressively are challenged to undertake more responsibilities and ownership. Note, that the employee MUST be proactive and direct their learning experience with line and graduate manager to maximise the results of their labour.

    Company is using time-proven technologies such as Java 8, JavaScript and Spring framework for many development projects. A recent graduate will also have an opportunity to select teams they are most interested in and get wide array of skills. Great for people who are not into specialising too early.

    In addition to interesting work and educational resources, the company has excellent offices, great work environment and above average colleagues to work with.

    The bureaucracy is also minimal for a company of this size and new joiners are well-shielded from majority of it to focus on learning and contribution.

    Overall, I found work here enjoyable, and challenging and am leaving because of something else that sparked my interest elsewhere. I have nothing to complain about and recommend the company to everyone.

    Cons

    None, great experience. Company should be growing despite regulatory pressures and Brexit.
