I just got a first interview too, and was wondering the same thing.

I looked them up on GlassDoor, and it seems like a boiler room mentality. I just wonder if anyone could answer the question if this could be transferable to a more proprietary trading outfit or show an investment bank that I can work the arduous hours it takes to succeed.

My advice to everyone: if you're interested, interview with CAE. It's a unique opportunity where you can make a TON of $$, but it's not in any way related to investment banking/security trading. They have an extreme culture, and you have to be your own judge of whether or not it's the right fit for you. That being said, please stop PMing me for advice... I've gotten close to 20 messages from my one post in this thread 10 months ago and I can't answer any more questions.
