I work at a trading company -- it's a blast.  Best job I ever had.
I've recruited people on this list to work here too -- they seem
pretty happy too.  My group is fast paced, we code in python all day,
we get real time feedback on our work, everyone is pretty friendly.
Our company is also open source friendly -- one of the things I
discussed with them when I was hired was my desire to remain lead
developer of matplotlib and they were supportive since they were heavy
users of OSS, and wanted to be supporters as well.

I don't think you can paint any industry with a single brush -- it
depends on the people you work with.
