    I worked at INTL FCStone

    Pros

    It's kind of a cowboy shop. Reminded me of what you hear about the culture of banking in the old days. The experience of the actual work and day to day seemed great. It's a good place to start,

    Cons

    The monetary benefits seem to be below market.

    I worked at INTL FCStone full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The accounts payable department had multiple employees, so they had more capabilities then the accounts receivable department, which only had two employees. The benefits and the pay were okay.

    Cons

    Even with having various locations, there was only one accounting department that deals with the brokers’ customers. The communication between upper/lower management and employees was terrible. W-2’s are not electronic and will be received by the last day of January. The accounts receivable department had two employees, a senior accountant (who lacks the comprehension to do her job) and an accounts receivable specialist/coordinator but the specialist/coordinator has been replaced multiple times so the only common denominator on why they leave is the senior accountant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should see that there is a pattern in the accounts receivable department; someone is not seeing the big picture that the senior accountant is not a substantial supervisor and should be trained or demoted.

    I have been working at INTL FCStone full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working for them for almost a year. As I'm meeting more people I'm seeing that in a world filled with red tape, our company offers plenty of opportunity for people who are driven and motivated to being the best in their field. The culture is fairly relaxed but each department has its stress depending on what time of the year we are in. Our risk managers and their training program is one of the best out there.

    Cons

    I think the company is fantastic for self motivated people, but there is a lack of training held on an annual basis on basic functions for management. Little to no training on specifics. Support functions can be difficult. If you have to be told what to do 100% of the time it may not be a good fit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on company wide training initiatives.

    Pros

    Excellent reputation, happy clients, products that work.
    Depending on team you work for, you can get a lot of autonomy and responsibility to build your own book of business.
    Rewards are fair and I can trust my team leader not to BS me.
    In a business building and sales role, I've never had my manager be unsupportive.
    Good, helpful teammates and a real sense that our team is all working together towards some very challenging growth goals, which is exhilarating.

    Cons

    Centralized functions like Marketing and HR are next to useless.
    Compliance team does a tough job and they do it well, but regulations in the finance industry are getting crazy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Important to reinforce to central admin functions, as part of the culture, that they are there to help support sales and Biz Dev functions not to hinder them.
    They definitely move slowly and inflexibly and have a sense that they are God, rather than service people. That should change if you want the drivers of the business to power forward.

    I have been working at INTL FCStone full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The highest level management and team of directors are really good people.
    Offices at great locations in the U.S.
    Benefits are acceptable,
    and hey there's free food on fridays!

    Cons

    Office culture could improve, have come across overtly aggressive and hostile colleagues.
    Promotions are hard to come by.
    Dependency on offshore teams is very high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more people on location to handle work pressure,
    too less people and too much work,
    business is booming,
    for this we need people, hire more!

    Pros

    I'm digging deep and I can't think of a positive comment to make about this place.

    Cons

    Gossipy negative atmosphere. Low compensation. Lacking integrity and core values.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate and invest in your employees. You should care more about them since they are your greatest asset.
