Day to day the work is very varied and you are constantly learning. It can be a very stressful place during busy periods.Work life balance can sometimes be blurred when you are expected to work overtime without pay. Great place if you are looking to progress and fully subsidised exams which increase your annual salary.
Laid back environment where your work is your responsibility.
Training isn't great and work life balance can sometimes be more work focused.
I worked at global shares for little over a year. Most startups are known as fun, quirky places to work. Global shares has nothing going for them in this category. Poor management focused on sales and growth only, when they are building and trying to grow on a very unstable foundation. Sort out the mess you have first before trying to grow. Take care of your employees. The staff turnover rate is very high and I fully understand why, and unless they change things, this will stay the same.
Inept team of unprofessionals with very little/no skills leading to a shambles of a company. It is a reactive unpleasant place of work, the worst I have endured. The only priority they have is sales growth, having no foundations to build upon is likely to lead to collapse. It’s also not about what you know, it’s who you know. Client service is appalling, the payments function is broken, tech teams are unable to prioritise due to many bugs .
Global shares trusts it employees with a lot of responsibility the moment you walk through the door. The training process is concise and one can gain great professional experience right away. The workplace is excellent with a healthy mix of both youth and experience. There are many many organized social events and cake on Fridays. There is a pool table where people can gather for a little competitive fun at lunchtime. The workload can get heavy at times and you will be expected to work late at times, but this usually only occurs at the end of quarter.
Pool table, good social events, cake and patient, approachable management.
