    Pros

    Good salary, the best colleagues. The company gives what it promises, unlike several other brokers I've worked for.

    I have been working at London Capital Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's quite possible that you will witness someone truly losing it there.

    Cons

    I now understand what it must be like to live under the ruthless rule of a psychotic dictator.
    Endless string of terrible decisions made by management and company owner.
    Staff treated like cattle
    The company had become a joke in the industry
    Almost every single member of staff is actively looking for new jobs

    Advice to Management

    Management dont care about advice and have no real power. They just await their orders and obediently follow or risk being fired by the dictator.

    Stop looking at ways to limit your staffs potential and tap in to their ideas.

       high demand
    - Trading the financial markets can bring both profits and losses so one must know
       how to remain calm and stay focused at times when the markets get crazy
       and the desk gets busy

    Advice to Management

    We have a great potential to make this company grow with the people we have so let's consider the interesting ideas provided by some of our colleagues and we shouldn't be afraid to take on more risk.
    Other than this, keep on winning!
