Wrong place for an "agent of change"
SENIOR TRAINER (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 22, 2015
I was hired as an "agent of change" for the specialist and broker training department, but soon found that the NYSE had a way of doing things that date back 200 years and they weren't about to change any of that now. This position was not a good fit for a technical trainer with the philosophy of training being a non-threatening atmosphere where it was safe to make mistakes. Not the way they like to train them at the NYSE - if it's going to be brutal on the floor, it's going to be brutal in training. As such, I didn't last long here - not a good fit at all. Fun place to visit, though.
Heck of a comment from northern NJ. VERY Long hours.
