!! angry rant follows !! Ok, imagine the following hypothetical situation. A senior trader gets a talking-to from the head of the department. Apparently, a young lady that was working with him as a trader-trainee, quit. To be specific, she asked to be transfered to a different desk. Why? Well, she told the head "The trader I work with sucks. He is angry, rude and can't explain shit." Might be true. It's the nature of this biz, a trader sometimes has to be an angry, rude bastard. Question is though - if you are unhappy with how you're treated/trained, why not to talk to him first?
