Move from HF to Prop Shop?
Do you guys think this is generally a bad idea?
Currently working @ Platform (millennium,, p72, schonfeld type)
Payout is ok, and I dont mind taking stress + working long hours, but I dont see much forward here - I dont find much learning opportunities. The opportunity is there, but I need to dig things out by myself without help from any colleague/teammate due to the culture of the firm.
I hear prop shops are more collaborative and there are more learning opportunities (and I am aware that there is no payout here; more of shared p&l).
Do you think moving from HF to prop shop is a bad choice? I value learning opportunities and collaborative environment more. I want to be in an environment where I feel like i'm the dumbest guy in the room.
