I worked at Infinium Capital Management full-time (More than 8 years)
Great culture and people that worked there. Initially great compensation and benefits. Fun and exciting place to work until employee base grew from 100 to 325.
Management team wanted to expand and be the next Citadel. Record year in 2008 made them believe we needed to double the number of employees. Inability to recreate success from 2008 and overhead essentially caused the demise of the company. Compensation and benefits went in the tank over the last 2-3 years of existence.
Advice to Management
Be thankful for the success that was in front of you. Sometimes hitting singles and doubles is better than hitting a grand slam.
I applied in-person. I interviewed at Infinium Capital Management.
Interned and was offered a job shortly after. If you work hard, most people notice.
The "interview" was more of a personality test. How you worked with others, what you learned, how you handled high-pressure situations, etc.
