    I have been working at Kershner Trading Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A lot of freedom at the company. Potential to make money (but no way to cultivate it properly). Great city and work hours.

    Cons

    Lack of trading culture; thus, many traders choose to trade from home. Dark and unlit trading floor (bad on eyes). New trader training is terrible. Mentors are hit/miss, but mostly miss. Company seems to hire in quantity versus quality. Very expensive desk fees. Technology team has an ego despite developing mediocre software. Virtually zero experienced trader to developing trader interaction. New traders are stuck in their own corner of the trading floor, while the experienced traders typically stick with each other

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a real training program, instead of overselling mentorship on the company website. Lower desk fees. Promote culture & interactivity on the entire floor. Revamp the technology team or hire a technology officer without ego.
