    "manage and close trades", lol. Standard, mind-numbing, back-office grind.
     
  3. Sounds brainless and low pressure(perfect). I just like that its close to home and a 5 minute commute. I will be in touch with recruiter in about 2 hours for details.

    It's a backoffice job. Backoffice jobs are mindless but certain not low pressure. I can see our backoffice where I sit - these guys consistently get yelled at. It's pretty much the same everything: operations is the worst place to be in.

    But.... I've seen backoffice guys lifted into the middle office and then lifted into the front office - some as long as 20Ys, others 3. The vast majority won't make it.
     
  7. Nobody believes that. I'll bet if they paid you $100K, you'd work for $38K.
