I worked at CAE (Capital Asset Exchange & Trading)

Pros

-50k base + commission starting
-nice office, gym on premise
-if you really put in the effort, you'll get pretty good pay, but that requires basically working 16 hours a day for 6 days a week

Cons

-terrible hours. 7am-7pm regular hours, expected to stay til 9-10pm, have to work on Sundays
-Not the most pleasant work environment. You will be fighting each other to close deals, always have to watch your back
-Managers swear at you if you don't meet their high expectations

Advice to ManagementAdvice

provide guidance and don't explode on employees
