Moderating the ModsI've had numerous instances where I have had my signature and my post edited by moderators and not in an attempt to censor, but actually changing what I said and making incredibly stupid statements (ie 'I have a small penis' 'I like dudes' 'etc'). If the site intends to have a forum, it would be... 149 4 years 5 months

HTC Evo or IPhone 4GHTC Evo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24r6q4clez8 or IPhone 4g http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yoqh27E6OuU I'm about to switch phones and don't know which one to pick. I'm leaning heavily towards the Evo, but may hold out until the Samsung 4G phone comes on the market. I hate Jobs, but... 22 5 years 10 months
Handling the stressHoping to hear from some of the more senior members that were or still are trading (esp. prop)--I'm talking to you Edmundo and others: How do/did you guys handle the stress day-to-day on the job? A couple of my friends are in trading at prop MM firms (think Optiver-type place) and I will likely... 18 5 years 11 months

You would need to be a lot more specific because...You would need to be a lot more specific because some of the 'prestigious' firms don't have any presence in some markets. Getco isn't a significant player in energy derivatives.... but it is considered by many a 'prestigious' shop. 540 1 year 6 months

Let's hope they even recruit at your school...Let's hope they even recruit at your school because there is a short list of 3-4 schools that compromise the majority of recruiting for those 2 firms. On top of that, there is not going to be any significant difference in compensation, just like at every shop, despite people being unable to get... 540 1 year 6 months

I can think of one or two people who turned down very lucrative offers at Allston for Getco.

Mean and median earnings don't have value in...Mean and median earnings don't have value in selecting or rating trading firms for undergrads, so it is valueless. Besides that, the data isn't even available and the sample sizes would be too small and varied in population to be statistically significant. 540 1 year 6 months

Showing off that you know compensation varies (hardly uncommon knowledge), and implying that this means someone's list is terrible, really... 540 1 year 6 months
Wtf do you mean comp/hour? Do you think that the...Wtf do you mean comp/hour? Do you think that the number of hours you work is a strongly significant factor in how much money you make? I don't think the firms are AS secretive as you think. People aren't going to tell you what their bonus was most likely, but that shouldn't be the discerning... 540 1 year 6 months

I guess I was thinking about places that have trading roles that are not programming. For that matter it would be interesting to know which firms have purely CS driven trading and which don't... 540 1 year 6 months
