I worked at Cantor Fitzgerald full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Absolutely none. As mentioned in some of the reviews below, reviews on this site for Cantor Fitzgerald that list pros tend to be fake reviews. The fake reviews are obvious because they all have 4 or 5 stars and the pros and cons they list are ludicrous. People who actually worked there would not give this company 4 or 5 stars. It is the least ethical company I have ever encountered, driven by the tone at the top, and there is no respect for the employees.

Cons

1) Pay. You will never get a pay raise. The bonus you are quoted will never materialize. When you do get a bonus, it will be in worthless "equity" or in the form of loans! The company nickels and dimes you everywhere they can - no 401k match, high employee burden for health insurance, you name it.
2) Office culture. The tone at the top only values the bottom line. Your hard work will go unrewarded.
3) Treatment of employees. If you don't quit, you will likely get fired. Employee terminations are frequent and arbitrary.

    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.
