Make bank?  Yeah, probably.  They also drop like flies after 35.

That website doesn't exactly read like a glowing advertisement.  I looked through some of the forums, and everyone is hating it.  They're all working 90+ hours and have no real relationships.  They've all been screamed at by hire ups at least once, and are looking for pretty much any way to get out.  Count me out.  I'm going to take a career that isn't just moving dollars from one place to another.

HA! So true

I like the hedge fund guys in my building that drive Bentleys and wear shorts and a tshirt to work.
