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

    Pros

    I got paid. Bonus was around 15%.

    Cons

    When you are working one-on-one with someone and don't have much interaction with other employees, it takes a toll on you. My immediate supervisor was a terrible human being. I don't even understand how people work with this woman. When I gave my notice and told individuals in other departments, they all told me how much they couldn't stand her. No surprise there, after all she was let go from her previous company. If you were a woman working under her, she was extemely condescending and judgemental. The guys in my group didn't seem to have an issue with her.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people who leave. There's usually a pretty good reason why they do and it doesn't always include better pay.

    I worked at INTL FCStone full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I got paid every two weeks.

    Cons

    Low pay for skill set. When requesting promotions and raises, forget about it! They fire people all the time for making career related inquiries. Promotion is from outside. Job announcements are hidden in inconspicuous place (i.e. behind the microwave or garbage can or under the kitchen sink). This is done to comply with "posting" laws!

    I've seen very cruel bullying and gossiping by supervisors, and the atmosphere was stifling. Subordinates would join in to fit in and it was the most unbelievable, unprofessional experience.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. Treat people with respect. Instead of bragging about being the 1%, pay your hardest workers more! Stop hiding job announcements, there are some very talented and loyal people being looked over for maniacal reasons!

    Pros

    There aren't any pros surrounding this role.

    Cons

    Not that dairy isn't boring enough, but try not having any work to do for months on end. We had a terrible boss.He provided no direction, no support, or leads for us to work on. He based his judgement of our team on small gossip around the office, because he was gone half the time. Low pay, no commissions, just a terrible place to work!

    Pros

    There mission to help third countries with payments, But there are more countries that need help than one specific one.

    Cons

    Management is RUDE stares at phone during interview. Says he have seen so many candidates in a day and does not want to repeat about " who they are as a company ". There is no room for Growth.THERE'S NO DIVERSITY at all in this company. You sit at a computer all day and practically suck up to management. They pay Interns little so they don't have to hire. They say they can only hire one candidate , maybe there budget is low. McDonald's pay $15 an hour. They want you to work 40 Hours for little pay. LEGIT WASTE OF TIME !!!

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional in Interviews. Wear professional clothing. Stop hiring your kids , that's a conflict interest. Respect your new hires and not treat them less of a person. Need more diversity and stop saying you have a Low budget. Need a legit Recruiting/HR team.
