Not really. I'm not an expert but I know at least two that offer that much (and I don't really know more than two so lol sample size could be on me)
I'm fairly undecided on what to think about working in trading. The big plus is that it attracts pretty smart people in general which is exactly what I'm looking for in a job (I'd say it's more important than salary for me) but otoh trading seems like it's not much fun and oftentimes breeds a pretty crappy atmosphere and is competition based.
I think the main reason why I stopped playing poker more and more is that jobs that are focused on competition are pretty idiotic in general. Maybe that's the software guy in me but I like my value to come from doing stuff that other people simply aren't doing instead of beating them at what they do. In essence I'd rather win a gold medal in throwing a spoon than beating Bolt if that makes any sense.
