Pros

I've spent been many years here now and I don't think any trading firm in the world has nailed culture and employee satisfaction like IMC Chicago has. The best evidence I can provide to an outsider

Cons

- Comp ranges for certain roles likely have unfairly limited upside during blowout years compared to peers' at competitors - Lack of promotional ladder and titles likely does in some way contribute

Advice to Management

Offering a form of ownership/profit-sharing to a class of high-performing employees subordinate to partners would help with retention, recruiting, and long-term motivation.

  1. Graduate Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Amsterdam
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IMC Trading (Amsterdam)

    Interview

    Everything went well until the zoom interview with two of their engineers when one of them started to dig very deeply into one of my past projects asking low-level trivia questions.

    At some point, I got so bored with their questions that I almost wanted to stop the interview right there, but then I decided to stay and get the chance to ask them questions as well. But guess what? Once I started asking questions they were not acting so smart anymore and gave super trivial boring answers, acting awkward, looking around, and sounding nervous. What a disappointment and a waste of time.

    For the first time in my life the interview helped me realize I want to reject them before they reject me.
