I worked at PEAK6 Investments full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Smart people, and good technology. Ability to trade what you want and have autonomy. There is plenty of transparency in the pay scale and no one should be surprised at the end of the year.

Cons

Its a big ship, individuals need to be cognizant of the big picture. Personal goals are good as long as they align with the firms vision. It may take more time to prove yourself.

    I worked at PEAK6 Investments as an intern

    Pros

    The technology available to people is top-level. Everybody is very smart, very driven, and very passionate. The business runs very smoothly.

    Cons

    They definitely demand a lot from you, but this was never really a con. It makes working there more of something to aspire to than something to expect.

    I worked at PEAK6 Investments

    Pros

    Willing to hire anybody on need to fill positions.

    Cons

    Company is a joke. People get hired/promoted on who they know from the company. Completely unprofessional, company has a young changing dynamic where you will hate your life if you stay longer than a year. If you are stuck up, rich, and uneducated this is your calling!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think less about your individual bonus and focus on the well-being of the company.
