I have been working at INTL FCStone as an intern for more than a year

Pros

Working at INTL FCStone sparked my entrepreneurial drive as I was able to work on numerous projects while being trained for commodity trading by the company's top traders.

Cons

The environment can be hostile as everyone is severely driven and competitive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There could be greater communication of overall company values in order to feel more team oriented with projects, especially when clients are involved as it was each man to himself.

    I worked at INTL FCStone full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Large, growing, international company. Decent location. Good place to be if you like routine work. Various departments to work for and opportunities to relocate.

    Cons

    Some in management lack integrity and communication skills. Witnessed a few managers and colleagues that were overtly hostile and not held accountable. Competitive and gossipy. Base compensation is really low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't get involved in gossip. The people in your office feeding your ego are the very ones destroying the work environment. Also, reward based on work and merit.

    I have been working at INTL FCStone

    Pros

    Some of the benefits of working at FCStone include the recent rapid growth of the company. They are rapidly hiring people to fill numerous positions. They also have a brand new office building with a view of downtown Kansas City, Missouri to the south and Briarcliff to the north. In addition, they have casual dress days on Fridays.

    Cons

    The company still uses a benefits company from Iowa to supply its health insurance. The pool includes mainly grain company employees, so insurance rates are fairly high. FCStone has also recently dropped its pension plan for employees. Finally, its 401k match is paid in a one time lump sum in company stock. Usually they pick the day to distribute to employees in which the price is the highest, thereby reducing the number of shares the company has to pay out.
