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.

    Too many Neanderthal old school wall st. types

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HWL needs to delegate more to competent, lower ego, pragmatic managers. They hire the wrong people to run their businesses.
