Fun Place to Work
SENIOR MARKET ANALYST (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIJune 24, 2015
I really enjoyed working for Gain Capital, and the atmosphere was laid back and fun. I have many friends from my time there that have continued to be so afterward. Unfortunately, they are closing the Grand Rapids office, where I used to work, and I am not familiar with the culture of the firm outside of our outpost.
Pros
Flexible, driven, fun

Great work environment
Partner Integration Team Leader (Current Employee) –  Bedminster, NJMarch 28, 2012
Typical day consists of setting up partner agreements, taking care of partner related issues, spread creation/updates, etc.

Managers do a great job of instructing and challenging to improve critcal thinking and task management.

Co-workers are very pleasant and great to work with which is a big plus in a team based environment.

Hardest part of the job is learning how to manage your time and prioritze tasks throughout the day.

Most of the time work tasks are different everyday which keeps the job from being routine.
Pros
occasional free lunches, laid back atmosphere, flexible hours
Cons
far commute, low wages, low raises, low bonuses

Helpful Training and fun culture
Associate Client Representative (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 7, 2013
starts with making "warm calls" trying to get people to open accounts with the company, then trying to educate some clients about FX trading and the platform. Learned a bit about FX trading but nothing I didn't already know. Main problem is people do not know much about FX trading so it is hard to educate them about it. Management is helpful in all situations, problem is metting your quota - sometimes people just don't want to open accounts and management puts alot of pressure on you. The company seems to be shrinking and there is no upward momentum in career advancement in my opinion. Asides from that the people who work there are young and cool.
Pros
most of the people who work there are cool
Cons
salary, bonuses, quota's, career advancement

Coworkers are easy going but that's it
Senior Account Executive (Current Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 3, 2013
Don't like the company culture and don't like the management and overall direction of this firm. Company doesn't spend any time or money to develop it's own employees careers and hence every single employee want to leave this place which creates a very negative environment to work in. There's no advancement in this place.
