    I worked at Chimera Securities full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The partners are awesome guys to work for--very supportive and feel more like friends than bosses. Casual environment. The sky is the limit--uncapped potential if you have the skills and are insane enough to take on trading as a career.

    Cons

    You eat what you kill, which naturally leads to fluctuations in compensation and psyche. Also, grown men shouldn't wear shorts and sandals to work in the winter.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage/reward more communication on the floor.

    Interview

    One phone screen asking why you want to work there and basic fit questions. Then interview in office with two traders who worked there. Not many technical questions, just more fit.
