    I have been working at R.J. O'Brien full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are in the futures industry, you can do no better than R. J. O'Brien. In this day and age of financial firms coming and going, making huge profits only to crash and burn amid all kinds of scandal, R J O'Brien is what all firms should be. "Old school" values, financial integrity, and always doing what it takes to give Introducing Brokers the tools to give clients top notch customer service. When I ask IB support any question, I get an email or phone call usually within the hour with my information.

    Cons

    I honestly can't say there are any true "cons."

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you're doing. Resist the urge to go the way of Refco, MF Global and other industry giants.

    Sent in my resume. Received a call for an interview. It was a one on one meeting general questions asked. Very short and was told I had the job right away.
