I do not think a company can be around since 1992, have over 400 traders and 40+ offices if it is that crappy. Could be the experience differs from office to office? I am about to send my Series 7 sponsor papers but who to? Debating Echo, Bright, L & W, Schoenfeld and confused like hell with all the one way rhetoric/comments. Of course Echo just merged with Van Buren. Can the real traders with experience at multiple firms, please stand up and be counted.
