    10. 3.0
      Current Employee, more than 8 years

      Great on your CV... and that's it; do not expect to grow here.

      20 Jan 2021 - Assistant Trading Manager in London, England, England

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great culture/team - if you are lucky to be on a good team. Lots of project to get involved in and grow (in knowledge, nothing else)

      Cons

      No progression or recognition. Expect people to take on other people's workload with very little acknowledgment or compensation. Unrealistic expectations - with no additional funding into systems or in staff talents. Blame culture and lack of accountability. Too much dead weight - people who have been there +10 years and stuck in old habits/ways of doing things; frustrating and detrimental to the business. Suggest to join for 2 years max; then move on!
