It is a good company to work for with a in-depth training program. I enjoyed my tenure, though short, there. I would recommend FXCM to anyone.

SENIOR BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAFebruary 11, 2015
Constantly hiring new college grads or people with limited experience to come on to the sales team. Great way to learn the ropes of finance, with a chance at moving up into higher sales roles or management.

Fast paced work environment
Trade Audit Associate (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXAugust 28, 2012
FXCM is a fast paced environment, in a niche market of the Financial sector. There is a very steep learning curve, but once mastered, you have the potential to excel.

From FXCM I learned a variety of skills in both sales and client services. Needs based selling was the greatest asset taken away from this position.

There is very little room for vertical advancement within the company, and employee turnover is extremely high. The lack of communication between management and employee can make things very frustration.

One positive is the work/life balance. You don't take work home with you, but the hours required can be demanding. Being asked to work the overnight shift for 3 month periods can be taxing.
