Great team of fellow workers. You're expected to work hard and make your own way and support from mentors or line management is nominal. You get out what you put in, so this job really suits self-starters with the determination to pursue their own goals and who thrive on pressure. Good remuneration and bonus arrangements for those with the drive, dynamism stamina and flair to earn them. You'll also get to meet plenty of movers and shakers and make contacts with other firms that can really help you develop your brokerage career.
The pace of work is very demanding and never slackens. Sometimes, you end up working crazy hours. Senior leadership is locked in an endless power struggle and they'll try to draw you into it too, if you're not careful.
International reach of the company gives you plenty of opportunities to travel.
