I worked at Kershner Trading Group full-time for more than a 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.

    I have been working at Kershner Trading Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They have been in business for a long time. The guys are easy to deal with. The guys have the interests aligned with yours, but that is about all.

    Cons

    Too long to list. Average technology, average support, no learning, no guidance, and no environment to improve once your old stuff stops working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Merge with some better options out there.

    I worked at Kershner Trading Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Rewarding work, but if you can do it here, you can do it anywhere. The offices are nice, but then those were set up in glory days of stock market trading.

    Cons

    no growth, limited capital, poor management, idea exhaustion, low morale, egos!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Call it a day! Hang in the towel. The markets are changed and the leadership clearly belongs to other firms.
