    I worked at Cantor Fitzgerald full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The "Wall Street Perks"---Good luck

    Cons

    It is truly amazing that there are positive reviews on here. Working there as long as I had and leaving (voluntarily) for a new industry, despite my background, I can notfathom it---unless Howie has people putting up positive reviews. They low ball your salary and promisw a ceratin bonus. Put it in your offer letter, because everyone's recollection disappears. They legit hire past dancers, waitresses etc based on their pictures. This company is a time bomb and the 2nd level of management is paid 4X what the VP's are---title no money. Just a terrible place, I was warned when I arrived and now I warn when I leave. Unless you are a 19 year old girl with no college that they can pay 35k to--you will have the time of your life.

    I have been working at Cantor Fitzgerald full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    For the finance professional with superior client relationships and market experience. Very entrepreneurial firm, flat structure and notable commission platform. Sales force have the ability to dictate what they get paid, if they are willing to put in the time. Fixed Income business is only 7-8 years old, and essentially feels like a start up in many regards – considerable room for growth and career advancement. This is a prestigious organization that has done fairly well during the crisis. When calling on customers, they instantly recognize the Cantor name, brand and longstanding history in finance.

    Cons

    Very small, lean teams –little room for fat anywhere in the company.
