Pros

MF Global was a really great place to work. Management was supportive, positive and with a great vision for the future. There was also a good work/life balance, terrific benefits

Cons

The company recently went bankrupt...so it's unlikely to survive. The company has been all over the news in a negative light.

Advice to Management

I don't have anything to add here as this company recently went bankrupt due to poor leadership decisions. Not much more to say.

    Pros

    Back in the day, although MF was among the largest FCMs it was a real family like atmosphere, plenty of opportunity and compensation if ou had the meddle to get through all the acquisitions but....

    Cons

    ....then it axquired refco, launched an IPO and went to hell. Management forced out after a rogue trader did damage and then successively run but less and less in touch people. It grew too big, too quick and a lot of innocent people were hurt.b
