I worked at Jump Trading full-time
Fantastic organizational structure. Management is easily accessible. Colleagues are the best and brightest in the industry. Comfortable working environment allows you to be yourself and not worry about perceptions. Rigorous work ethic all around.
Five words for Cons. There are no cons.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Jump Trading (Chicago, IL) in October 2013.
Submitted resume online. I was called to gauge interest in positions they wanted to fill and blew them off. They called back a couple months later and wanted me to apply for a position I wasn't heavily qualified for even though they had positions that I was. I did a phone interview and then an in-person interview with four groups. Two were technical, one was the non-technical part of the team, and one was a board member.
My real issue was with the process. THEY CONTACTED MY EMPLOYER WITHOUT TELLING ME. Luckily the person was aware of my situation, but this was EXTREMELY unprofessional. They also were kind enough to never actually follow up with a decision, even though I know this to mean they passed. They passed because I was not qualified, which was what I was telling the recruiter the duration of the process. Unprofessional all around.
