Working Conditions

Like most careers, this is a role that requires research and planning. Stock brokers work in very fast-paced offices, monitoring changes to the stock market to make decisions. Since stock brokers do not buy and sell for themselves, they have to consult with their clients and advise them. They work long hours in the office and are tied to computer screens and phones calls to clients.
