    I worked at Archelon

    Pros

    Small prop trading firm, comfortable work environment, solid operations, decent executive group. Many of the traders and support staff have been with the firm for a long time which characterizes the culture.

    Cons

    The comfort and familiarity of the place comes at a cost. While the firm innovates, it does so at a measured pace.

    I worked at Archelon full-time

    Pros

    There were a lot of good people who worked there. Like most trading firms there was always something to do so it was rarely boring. Good pay. Casual work environment.

    Cons

    Some people liked brainstorming ideas that were not practical at the time rather than focusing on the actual work at hand. The large layoff was no fun.
