Okay guys, left my old firm and I have a couple opportunities. I think I know which one I'm going to take, but wanted to get your input. Job 1) Junior Trader - The title is a misleading. It's a firm that has developed a system that automatically places trades in certain names. The traders job is basically to manage those trades and look for areas that the system needs help with. Monitoring news releases, FDA announcements, etc. It's a pretty solid base salary with nice bonus potential, depending on firm profitability. Can make 90k plus. Good job security, nice hours, and they will pay for an MBA at a top program. Job 2) Trader - Typical trading job. It's for a proprietary options firm. They are top of the line, especially the group I'd be with. Will have 5mil haircut+. Competitive base, obviously bonus potential is limitless, decent hours, casual dress, sometimes catered lunches. Still have to ask about the MBA. Job security here is a lot less lower than Job 1.
