Would a front office Chief of Staff (7YOE) in IBD make more than a back office CoS? I found a role that looks great but not sure if it’s worth the added hours/pressure if the money and bonus will be the same as in back office tech. It says Series 6,7 preferred but not required if that helps. Thanks

Anyone worked with a recruiter after being “head hunted” via LinkedIn. This recruiter calls me prior to each interview to give me tips and we speak after to debrief. So far he’s been helpful and seems genuinely invested in getting me into this position, as long as I want it. Trying to figure out if I should actually trust him though since obviously they’re contracted by the company. Any red flags to look out for?
