    I have been working at Allston Trading


    Management is top-notch. They run a very transparent company, are approachable, and listen to feedback from employees. The compensation is fair and in-line with other top prop trading firms. Good benefits package with added perks such as free lunch. Great group of talented co-workers who are team players.


    The timeline for developing new trading technology has been over-promised and under-delivered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue listening to employee feedback and taking that into consideration when making decisions.

    Positive Outlook

    Interview Details

    I met a recruiter at a job fair and a couple weeks later I got a phone interview. All of the questions from the phone interview were pretty straight forward and mostly just conceptual questions. A week later, I was invited for an on-site interview. The on-site interview was fun (though there were 5 interviews, each an hour long.) At the end of the day, they took us to a pretty good steakhouse. It looks like they really know how to treat their employees.
