      Pros

      Decent corporate health insurance and decent amount of annual leave

      Cons

      1.Management will overpromise and paint a beautiful picture of how there isn't enough brokers to cover clients and there will be fair client distribution. BUT, when you join you will then be asked to find your own clients.They hold on to their clients like hounds, even when clearly they cant cover all of them well and the clients clearly needs to be redistributed to other people on the desk. 2.Some desks are severely understaffed and they make newcomers do 2-3 times their workload, some people are doing 11-12 hours shift and are force to lunch in. You are hired for one thing but end up doing 2 or 3 diff roles with no added compensation. 3.HR is situated in London, there is no HR in Singapore and this does not help at all. Hr is severely out of touched with Singapore working environment. 4.it is a toxic environment to work in. Alot of disrespect shown to the operations/IT here. Sentences like, this trader likes asian young women, this guy likes Caucasian women, So and so should cover him. Is quite disturbing to hear. 5. Extremely high turnover rate. In merely five months, it has already hit double digits in the Sg office.

      Pros

      Renumeration at market rates. Working with smarter people than the average. Opportunities to learn if you are motivated.

      Cons

      Zero company culture or personality. Expectations versus reality out of wack, pay not in line with deliverables. Management do not listen to advice. Little diversity in the workplace, hire the same way of thinking. Culture of talking about employees to others, which is obvious and rude.
