    I worked at Cantor Fitzgerald full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A changing culture with a strong and well thought out message for the future direction is the firm has been well articulated for those with a seat. Recent positive changes: Cantor bolstered its financial resources and is now Investment Grade rated. A new obsession around a client first oriented focus is emerging. If you have good motives, you are given the flexibility to “try hard and fail”. A new and renewed Prime Brokerage...

    Cons

    A little more structure for new folks wouldn’t hurt, perhaps a “Cantor Playbook” with a listing of department heads with group bios and the like would be helpful. Helping employees navigate the various products and services would be helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps more “atta boys” to employees is merited. We don’t see a lot of top brass mingling with the trading floor(s) very often. A quarterly walk of the floor with some high fives and pats on the back go a long way. Semi-annual “town halls” (could e by telephone) also helpful. Everyone needs to own the corporate vision, all the way down to the cleaning crew. One team, one dream.

    I have been working at Cantor Fitzgerald full-time

    Pros

    Great culture - very collegiate, everyone there seems to really enjoy coming into work every day. Incredible access to high-ups who are willing to talk and teach you if you're hungry enough.

    Cons

    Very high pressure environment. Being a smaller firm, you will quickly be noticed if you're not performing, so you have to be ready to handle that kind of pressure. Must have a thick skin as MDs will have no problem being harsh on you if you mess up.
