I worked at Cantor Fitzgerald part-time for less than a year

Pros

Cantor has excellent pay and benefits. If you have a rational boss (as I did), then the experience is much better. There are very clear metrics for success, i.e. the amount of profit your group has brought in.

Cons

Unfortunately, fulfillment is entirely one dimensional in this line of work. As long as you are happy with a contest of points, then its a good place to be. If you want broader intellectual or spiritual fulfillment, then this is not the place to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a few spots, focus on them, become good at them.
    Retain good staff by the above and by paying them

    I have been working at Cantor Fitzgerald full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Cantor has a very entrepreneurial spirit. In my experience, opportunities for challenging work experiences, recognition and exposure to senior management are much more possible here than at a lot of firms. The firm values and rewards initiative and hard work. My colleagues are collegial and supportive of each other; a lot of terrific people work here.

    Cons

    Lean infrastructure (which is also a pro, but it can be challenging to keep up with the volume).
