I worked at SMB Capital full-time

Pros

Friendly group to work with, like to enjoy the night life together, helpful in training. Partners made butttloads in 90's tech bubble and '08, so making money isn't an issue.

Cons

It's all about the money. If you can't make it and you lose your account, you're done. Very intimidating fact if you having a hard time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Support your traders more or get rid of them. The prop business is fading away and you know it, that's why you're moving to become a training facility.

    I worked at SMB Capital

    Pros

    Made some great friends. It was a great place to learn how the markets work. A good introduction to equity trading.

    Cons

    Not a place where management treats its employees fairly. Trading strategy does not work either. They need a new edge besides reading the tape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat traders fairly. Develop new strategies because reading the tape is outdated and doesnt work. to many tricks with the programs.
