I worked at Kershner Trading Group full-time (more than an year)

Pros

great state of the art facility
complete autonomy of your schedule
trade what and how you want
no personal financial liability
good leverage if you can earn it

Cons

no training!!!
no exit opportunities if you fail in any other finance field
very expensive fees that can make it hard to earn a living

Advice to ManagementAdvice

With the money that's lost in trades, you can use that amount to invest in a training program that promotes good risk management and team work to search for opportunities. Kershner offers great value for many but is short of a recognized program because of its failure to appropriately breed talent.

    Pros

    One of only a few places that will allow someone with relatively modest background and education trade a multimillion dollar account.

    Cons

    The learning curve to become a successful trader is very steep, and it is usually unrealistic to start from scratch and learn to make enough to survive on without running out of money or giving up.

    Pros

    At Kershner you have oppurtunity to learn about the stock market and get all you licenses, you also have pretty good work hours.

    Cons

    The pay is performance based so especially at the beginning you must be prepared to make no money and as you learn the job actually dig yourself a hole

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise management to try and establish a better training program for newbies. Maybe allow for a longer period before actually trading.
