    Pros

    It is unlike any other company I have worked for, theres no sense of hierarchy, the team are all treated the same. IG put a lot of effort into ensuring the company mingles, they do this by setting up monthly events in the office.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours are long and you can be expected to work late, but personally have felt that its always made up to you in some way.

    Advice to Management

    Regular catch ups would be appreciated

    Could do so much better with the staff and technology - high staff turnover in most IT departments.

    Pros

    Location in central London
    Friendly staff at same or lower levels
    Free fruit daily and free monthly Friday night drinks for all.
    Decent monthly pay package, share matching scheme and contributory pension.

    Cons

    Blame culture is big, given the claim to not be one.
    High churn of staff meant you never knew who'd be working with you on a project from day to day.
    Chasm between the workers and senior staff - who redefine the word 'unapproachable'.
    VERY cliquey environment to work within - if you weren't one of the in crowd, boy did you know it.
    Annual bonus inconsistent in allocation to those seemingly doing a similar job.
    They don't understand at all career progression or aspirations of staff who want to move up.
    Projects seem to materialise from no where with no business case, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Get a proper strategic plan and stick to it. You are now a big company - act like one, rather than one that acts on whimsical fancies.
