    I worked at Jane Street for less than a year

    Pros

    There were lots of educational classes during both the summer and winter internships. Also great mentorship, really smart people, learned a lot.

    Cons

    The intern projects weren't as closely tied to real traders' projects as I would have liked. This was mostly due to IP concerns, which makes sense, but is still nonoptimal.

    I worked at Jane Street

    Pros

    The payout is very very satisfying. It is very challenging. You are working in an environment with a lot of very very smart people.

    Cons

    You are constantly challenging yourself, your peers are the smartest people in the world. In the beginning, it is extremely hard to make money. Almost all traders fail at the start, but they teach you how to later be very profitable.
