Cut below the thinner parts, just above the thick part of the branches. Cut right above leaf nodes. Try to prune the overall size of the plant. Everywhere you prune, new branches will spring up. Always keep few sets of leaves, at least, so it can continue to make food for itself and re-grow.
This Ficus can keep under the indoor condition where the direct sunlight is available.
