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

    Pros

    - Free Fruit, tea, coffee, etc - Nice people and a relaxed atmosphere

    Cons

    Where to start is the biggest question in my mind... Here goes: - Misleading job title; you do NOT do any sales and no trading. A more appropriate job title would be "customer service representative". - Lack of progression, though, from what I hear this is something they're attempting to change though not entirely sure how effective it will be with everyone wanting to move from the department. - Lack of direction with the business with only one arm making any money and the rest being used for some insignificant cross-sell. - Political culture - Terrible management. - "Head of" title being given to everyone under the sun. All in all, an awful experience. This role is a 2-year role MAX if you're a fresh grad and desperate for a job. Don't go into this company if you are looking for a career.

    I worked at IG full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good if you are dead in your career , loser ,or is non competitive and just want to keep your self little easy in life. Nice Modern office , free fruit and drinks , Nice annual Christmas party, Flexible benefits

    Cons

    QA department is the most non competitive set , leads and management here is a total waste of time, big time politics and favourism by oldies, micromanage team members ,no recognition,no scope of career progression for intelligent, creative and hard working person working under them - Simply bcoz if you can outgrow your leads or manager, where will they go ? QA manager in particular likes harmless , non competitive leads so that he stands a chance to survive in the organisation. HR is biased in case you complain qbout your lack of progression here . Cost cutting in the name of modern office , work from home.Under big pressure due to regulatory curbs on their head. In nutshell, its a small company with limited projects , high on favorism,monarchy kind of management , limited growth . Good for graduates / early career in case you dont find any other offer.

    I worked at IG full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Games , pool table and nice sofas. Free fruits and nice wall paper in the toilets. Easy to see the huge politics and egos that is hurting the company.

    Cons

    All the best and talented people are leaving or already left. Senior management believe they know best and are following their personal agendas.

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

    Pros

    The majority of staff are intelligent and social, despite an ever growing shift of in priorities by management, staff are 99% friendly and happy to interact and help... Good social organised activities and regular social gatherings at company's well known watering holes... Great location in the City and free fruit a bonus...

    Cons

    A culture of high turnover of staff that other companies & recruiters would bite there hand off for... Top level management disengaged from their staff who are succeeding in their tasks despite the ridiculous timescales & deadlines they are asked to perform under.

    IG is a really nice place for me to start my career. Amazing location with nice views. IG wants their employees to be fit and healthy, also the casual working life really gives IG a homely atmosphere as well as that office feel....Free fruit for employees :)
