I just started FT at a BB firm. i was wondering what the take is for the long-term career prospects within the industry. Is it safe to assume I'll have a strong career 10-15 years down the line? Part of me is drawn to something more stable, such as accounting.

S&T and accounting are two completely different professions, with completely different risk profiles.

It takes a unique person to enjoy and flourish in S&T. If you're having doubts about S&T and are looking towards something like accounting, then I'd firstly suggest that you get some exposure to accounting. If you've already gained exposure to accounting, then you're probably going to be better off in accounting.
