    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 an employee referral. I interviewed at Chicago Trading Company (Chicago, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Three round robin interviews with Q's about history and interest. They brought me in and walked me through the typical process. Expectations were clearly defined for each step. They emphasized their community as their most valuable asset, and I would generally agree that in such a high impact job, being a good fit for the job is probably paramount to keeping the company as a strong competitor in the marketplace.

    Interview Questions

    • Emphasized the importance of team and then asked me to share some piece of information that would make the team better.   Answer Question
