How are the career development opportunities at IG?

Pros

Some of the people there are decent and honest

Cons

No real direction given; no prioritisation of initatives and instead an expectation from middle and senior management to do everything with zero compromise, regardless of the pressure and stresses that places upon employees. Lead to so many evening and weekend shifts with little recognition or thanks. The only people to progress/remain unscathed are ones who were there in the 'good old days' years ago and are therefore untouchable, regardless of how they behave and act towards other people. There is absolutely no chance of career progression or promotion unless you're in the 'inner circle' and it is nauseating observing how people climb over others to get there, regardless of their suitability for the roles on offer. There is a blame culture there with people happy to throw each other under the bus, which has created a toxic atmosphere, leading to many of the good people jumping ship in recent months.

How are promotions handled at IG?

Pros

- Good money, for those who are willing to work hard - Promotions available for those that show promise - 'modern'/relaxed/fin-tech culture coupled with the excitement of a large trading floor - Biggest and most respected trading firm - if you're gonna work in retail trading, with is by far the best firm!

Cons

- Commission/sales-schemes are reviewed yearly (at the very least!), so forever changing 'rules' - Industry going through some tough times in terms of new regulations (IG best positioned to deal with these changes, however - compared to other players in the market)
