    I worked at IG full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Got a very good product, top cfd provider in this region

    Cons

    Future is bleak with revenues being impacted and many senior people have left, cannot control attrition rate. This has to be the worst year for them as management is in no mood to retain smart guys. In fact some of them are asked to leave with very little notice. With new CEO only talking about cost cutting, I foresee lot of people being told to leave, It is unfortunate to see company in this state , I would say this might be a takeover candidate soon

    I worked at IG full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    IG is a fantastic place to work and develop as a marketeer. The sector is fast paced and as the markets move every second, there are always opportunities to develop content and engaging campaigns. IG is also a company that enables you to progress. Although, unfortunately, I was only at the company for a short space of time - I was presented with a number of career development opportunities. The future is bright for IG Group and I wish my ex-colleagues all the best on the exciting journey ahead.

    Cons

    None - it has been fantastic.
