    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at GAIN Capital full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Limited work hours, good office location, a lot of freedom

    Cons

    CEO expresses banal platitudes as if they were results of sharp business shrewdness, a huge red warning light to most. If the firm is successful, it likely won't be due to him. Technology stack is very old. Don't expect to work on cutting edge. Engineering management has weak knowhow compared to investment banks trading similar asset classes, don't expect to gain knowledge on market best practice of electronic trading. People management is weak at best with sackings frequently happening on dubious merits.
