    I have been working at HedgeServ full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good atmosphere, variation of duties, opportunities for progression if you apply yourself, training provided on regular basis, good sport and social scene.

    Cons

    Like other companies in the industry, subject to extended hours some month ends, and most quarter ends, but within reason.

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

    Pros

    ACCA and exam support Progression exists by putting in time. Options to travel to other locations.

    Cons

    No one talks to each other. Management are in cliques and do not interact with younger members of the team despite working together everyday. Large quantities of work, generally left to do it alone and only will escalate if it becomes a massive issue. Have seen people be made cry by senior team members

    Pros

    Excellent opportunities for progression. Great people to learn from and work with. Challenging environment where you are always learning and the days go by quickly. Global locations with opportunities to relocate to other offices. Company is growing quickly and that trend looks to be continuing year on year. Good benefits such as healthcare and pension contributions.

    Cons

    No frills, offices are very basic. White desks and white walls. No bonuses and pay increases are on the small side. Very hard to get items such as laptops and mobile phones which are standard in many organisations of its size.
