    Former Employee - Sales and Trading Intern in Jersey City, NJ

    I worked at Knight Capital as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Cool people to work with, great on the job training, awesome group of interns to become friends with and also learn from, casual Fridays. You rotate throughout the trading floor and learn about the different divisions. Some group projects. Very good internship to prepare for a full-time job post college graduation.

    Cons

    Some super egos on the floor but I think that happens just about everywhere
