    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!
