The purpose of this thread is to hopefully give me a fair read on this firm and maybe some general career guidance. Any traders out there ever work for this firm. This is my first post, but I'm an avid market watcher and am seriously working toward a career in prop trading. FNYS salary/ training etc. look attractive as a lead in. some of the others that look good too, from what I see; Worldco and Heartland Securities. Any takers to open up a discussion, I truely appreciate it. and if you work there and want free lunch, maybe after the close I'll be happy to pay for your time, say at Smith & Wolensky, on 3rd Ave! No joke, to me it would be worth it because I read about so many nightmare firms I don't want to make the wrong start.
