    I worked at IG full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Nice people, relaxed environment, good introduction to finance. Modern office in a great location.

    Cons

    Technology leadership lacks vision and is resistant to modernisation. The tech platform is outdated and needs serious investment. Attempts to improve usually fail due to lack of support from senior management and procrastination from all involved. Developers aren’t trusted and don't get the tools they need to be effective. Drowning in process. Hot desks. See the review entitled ‘Mediocracy’ - they got it spot on.

    I worked at IG full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Games , pool table and nice sofas. Free fruits and nice wall paper in the toilets. Easy to see the huge politics and egos that is hurting the company.

    Cons

    All the best and talented people are leaving or already left. Senior management believe they know best and are following their personal agendas.

    I worked at IG for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice city office Good mention scheme

    Cons

    Company has too many mediocre people, which push good people away. Mediocrity is so impregnated into company's culture that it affect all it's aspects. Attempts to innovate and/or change things frequently killed in the outdated processes. Processes which won't change, as they provide a comfortable way of procrastinating without getting in trouble because of doing so. Senior management needs to improve their skills, their actions/comments often generate internal conflicts between different teams and within teams.
