I got lucky enought to meet, by chance, a VP at JP Morgan/Chase a few months back. I visited their trading floor on Park Avenue this afternoon. After seeing that floor and also visiting and talking to prop traders in prop firms, I'm starting to see how full of BS some people are on here when they say they would rather go PROP instead of working for a firm directly like a JP or a big investment bank in theri trading departments. There is no comparison-That thread that someone posted early this week about being a Princeton graduate and wanting to go prop is even more convincing to me now that it was a crock of Sh-t that that person posted. After seeing that floor at JP and the people that work there, it is no wonder that prop is always talked about as the rif raf of the trading world. My eyes were really opened today.
