    Good teamwork, laid back atmosphere, monthly drinks, Christmas party.

    blame culture is rife,

    pay is poor, bonuses are not necessarily linked to performance, too many good employees leave

    Former Employee - IT Project Manager in London, England (UK)
    Former Employee - IT Project Manager in London, England (UK)

    I worked at IG Group full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great facilities for employees. Clean showers, changing rooms and kitchens. Great perks such as gym allowance, private health care and bonuses.

    Cons

    They believe they are an agile company yet not really grasped what agile is. They use project managers and a hydrid product owner/scrum master and business analyst as a hybrid stakeholder or prodcut owner. The Pm office does not have programme managers or a real grasp on project and programme governance however that's partly due to senior management that have been at IG a long time and do.not know any other way of working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to changes and adaptation. There are more efficient ways of working in the world than IG world.

    I worked at IG Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hiring individuals based on a good fit meant many positive work relationships and individuals with similar focus. Good motivation levels that inspired. While more structure to the hierarchy has developed over the years, management are still approachable and willing to listen. Extra hours are expected but generally recognised.

    Cons

    Communication wasn't always as good as it could have been, changes explained as they happened. Promotion opportunities limited, many young and talented individuals have moved on as a result, top management seemingly unwilling to address this.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)

    I worked at IG Group full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    IG looks after staff fairly well and the benefits and facilities around the office are good. If you deliver, you can be rewarded well. The company works hard to maintain the quality of it's products and brand values which is reflected in the corporate culture. IG can be slow to adapt to new technologies and ideas

    Cons

    There is a hierarchy and a gulf between staff and senior management. There is another gulf between technology and the business functions and it can seem at times that it's two separate companies you're hearing about. Because of high staff retention over the years in certain areas, it can be clicky. It's a professional, well oiled machine and that doesn't suit everyone's working style, particularly if you hate the idea of being a cog in a wheel.
