    I have been working at GAIN Capital full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    Pros

    They will pay for your Series 3 & Series 34. For the most part, co-workers and senior management are good people. This is really it when it comes to good things about this job.

    Cons

    Client Services is looked down upon in the company from the really high ups to other departments. It is bad enough we had to deal with incompetent customers who don't know how to use a computer, angry customers who were wrong 99% of the time and rude high net worth clients, but to catch attitude from other departments within the company is completely unacceptable. Especially considering the fact that we did most of their work for them. Client services literally does everything and other departments act like they were overworked. The communication between us, senior management and other departments was extremely poor. In regards to the pay; absolutely embarrassing. For the amount of work that is required, the pay is abysmal. At the end of the day if someone asked me if they should work at Gain Capital; the simple answer is NO!
