    I worked at BGC Partners full-time (more than 5 years)


    Hard work pays off. The people that make it stay: many of the top managers have been there 20+ years. BGC is agile and highly innovative. You get plenty of chances to make a name for yourself. Flat organization and you can easily talk to anyone you want.


    Hours will be long. If you are a 9-5 type, or thin skinned, it's probably not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on your Public Relations. In Wall Street's halcyon days a kid from a public university could be a success in finance. Then everyone tried to be Goldman Sachs. We all see how this worked out! Wall Street lost it's way except for you, let people know it.
