does anyone have first hand experience with this firm?
not first hand. But i did use to work with a lot of guys who came from there. What do you want to know?
i guess the most basic thing i'd like to know is whether or not its a decent place to go for the newly licensed, or more of a place to go once you've cut your teeth somewhere else.
well. It all depends on what you want to do. You can make money there, just like you could anywhere. Its all stocks though. No-name type of place. You'll pound people on the phone all day to buy stocks.
Which is fine. I came from a place where I used to do that and it was great. Just depends on what you want to do.
