    Flexible work schedule for back office works. Laid back dress code and atmosphere. Big company with a lot of departments to work in.

    Back office employees have a ceiling that doesn't allow for much career growth

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with the day-to-day

    Pros

    Unlimited spend due to upper management ignorance.

    Cons

    Unless your in the core business (broker) upper management has a complete disconnect to other business functions. Everything is based on the buddy system not what you know and the projects at hand. The I.T. group has never completed a project on time within budget EVER. However, the middle management allows their buddies to skate through without any accountability. If one can handle the childish behaviors this might be the place for you and DO NOT disclose that one supports President Trump.

    Advice to Management

    Get control over middle management or the company will fail and avoid the costly separation packages. Hold middle management accountable for their actions.

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

    Pros

    My manager had vision and took advantage of developments to keep the department competitive with other companies. Also, CEO was a great motivational speaker. Also was always ready to listen to well-thought ideas from employees.

    Cons

    Very political environment. The company was very clever in making timely acquisitions, but then was very poor or indifferent when it came to controlling ensuing turf wars with existing groups. Often the winning faction was not the one best positioned to advance the firm's agenda, resulting in subpar performance on the part of demoralized employees.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down the acquisitions - pay more attention to fully utilizing existing staff, and try to depoliticize intergroup relationships.

    Pros

    None. Working here was a complete waste of time and I would not recommend anyone to this company as you have no long term future.

    Cons

    Leaders who are rude and immature in every way. No overall vision/strategy communicated, inability to execute towards goals. Leaders are intimated by experience and spend more time blocking progress vs helping teams become successful.

    Advice to Management

    Hire individuals with experience and listen to them instead of blocking improvements and holding them back. Reflect on actions and learn from these and maybe individuals will want to work for you longer term.
