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

    Pros

    1) Great benefits 2) Work/Life balance 3) Events and socialising 4) They are starting to become more modern 5) Location & offices

    Cons

    1) Extremely bad management. Senior managers don't care about their teams 2) Marketing department has no idea what they are doing 3) Many internal transfers based on politics and likes rather than the actual skill-set of people 4) No salary reviews 5) Give people the title of "Head of" for peanuts. They have more heads than any other company I have worked for 6) If you are at a stage in your life that you want to work with experienced marketeers and new technology do not join IG. 7) There are no processes

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

    Pros

    Good fresh fruits. Can work from home. Learned a lot some decent people and good laughs. Stick it out if you can become a dealer.

    Cons

    -stopped bringing in fresh fruits. Pressured to work in the office. - Lot of big egos considering over 70% of clients lose money and IG profits on those losses. - tell you to follow your line managers instructions, but when your line manager leaves, you get targeted for doing what you were told. This can be accredited to the fact that there was 0 communication whatsoever. Could have been an easy fix.
