    I have been working at Chicago Trading Company full-time

    Pros

    Workers create a great environment to work in. Always looking for new ways to improve so it's a very dynamic and fast-paced environment. Great perks like pay, free breakfast/lunch, company parties.

    Cons

    There is a bit of a divide between the trading side of things and the software side of things. It would be nice if this could be bridged in some way.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Chicago Trading Company.

    Interview

    Asked a bunch of behavioral/ past experience questions and then continued on to mental math/ expected value questions. Had two separate 30 min interviews. Both interviewers were friendly and encouraging.
