If it makes the experience of the bashing in this thread a little less
negative, I will admit that it has raised the company a little more in
my esteem.  If I have gained a more positive impression, then it is
most likely other people now have as well. (It's not likely that I am
a complete outlier)

I have a poor impression of trading companies, and was surprised to
see that Brian worked for one. My intuition would be that he'd only
work at a pleasant place, and I never thought a trading company would
be a pleasant place. I ignore job postings for them.

>From this thread I found out that it is not a trading company, and
that other people in the list vouch for it.

Btw, of the most recent job postings, I will vouch for Leon Chism's
since I know people he works with and has worked with. I'm not sure if
that helps anyone here since most of you don't know me that well, but
I thought I'd give a nod in case it helps.
