    Catered lunch is pretty good, onsite education is fantastic, everyone is friendly. Fast paced and challenging, which may not be for everyone. Little bureaucracy, which can be difficult for those used to structure; politics do exist, but at a below average level. Relaxed dress code and atmosphere. Most similar industry companies make their employees pay for at least part of their health care plans. Not so for CT. There is a more premium option that you can select which does cost, but in general, very good benefits. Great freedom and autonomy given to newer employees; good, casual environment; flat office hierarchy (which can be appealing).


    Some of the older traders maybe don't know tech stuff super well, but the younger traders do. It can be frustrating at times. Tech team willing to work with you on ideas. Too reactive to problems in the organization, but the firm addresses them when they surface. Many problems could be avoided by being more proactive.

    Advice to Management

    Stay ahead of issues in the organization rather than reacting after they have become a problem.

    Trader Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Consolidated Trading (Chicago, IL) in October 2014.


    Round one: on campus interview Round two: on site group interview and brainteasers Round three: offer or decline Overall, willing to answer any question that was relevant to the hiring process. I liked the group interviewing aspect. My interviewing peers were from top schools. Overall, great process. If possible, apply for the position through their website AND through the school job board. I think you have a better chance that way. The best chance of all obviously, is to find someone at the company and have them recommend you, but I think that's pretty obvious.
