    Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?

      Horrible senior management, shouting, bullying

      Pros

      Work life balance can be good. Direct team leads and line managers are good at their jobs and appreciate work done for them.

      Cons

      I have worked at GC for a long time now and one thing that has never changed is the disgusting way that Senior management treat their staff. One particular (Without mentioning names) has free reign to Bully, intimidate, use threats of firing (Scare tactics), Abuse absolutely everyone behind their back and has direct access to all staff members. Due to this they force workload onto people without any regards for triage and some of the work they force upon them has unreasonable deadlines, is poorly managed and only half of the information is passed on. Already set up for a fall before you begin and then when it goes wrong the entirety of the blame fulls on the unfortunate person who was given the task rather than with the person who poorly handed it down. You are then rewarded by more abuse, shouting and swearing usually with an audience to better their effect ! Whilst this goes on, all other senior management will just turn a blind eye to it (Even those senior to them) and for this reason I think they are just as bad. Due to this person, I (As well as anyone else I have spoken to about this) truly believes that they are the main reason why GC has not progressed and why it will continue to fail in the future. Team Leads and management are treated like PA's to senior management. Constantly nagged and micro managed - I always feel sorry for them. Salary increases rarely happen, bonuses could be better.

      Client Services-Repetitive Mindless Work

      Mar 4, 2018 - Anonymous Employee

      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!

      Cons

      Very low remuneration for a financial services firm, only senior management get paid well Marketing - the firm is run by this department, major strategic decisions are made without input from other depts, often leads to costly mistakes Poor communication between departments No defined career path - good place to start your career but after that you hit a ceiling.

      Inexperienced and cut-throat workforce

      Pros

      You have the ability to chart your own career provided you can work in an unstructured work environment and successfully navigate sensitive political minefields

      Cons

      Resources are extremely limited and projects are initiated with limited foresight. Aim, point, and shoot is the mantra. Compounding this problem is an inexperienced workforce that is learning as they go along. It is not uncommon to to sacrifice some other person, usually one who is undeserving or at least vulnerable, to advance your personal agenda. Senior management encourages and rewards this.
