    I have been working at Consolidated Trading full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I came to Consolidated right out of college. The firm recruits from the top schools in the nation. The training that I received was priceless, and now I am running my own desk within the firm in a relatively short amount of time given the industry. The amount of freedom traders are given is incredible, and this is perhaps one of the best opportunities any college graduate could be given. The firm has a good culture, free happy hours once a week and other good events.

    Cons

    I've read the reviews and have noticed a lot seem to be negative. These are written by people who had the opportunity to make millions, but failed, and for the most part are blaming the firm. There is certainly a push the bird out of the nest belief here after training is complete. Some fly, others fall.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Consolidated Trading in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview, then On-site. The interview was pretty easy; the questions asked were behavioral, technical (math, coding, brainteaser, etc.). It is good to know why you want to work at this firm.
