    I have been working at M1 Finance full-time (More than a year)


    M1 is truly a community of people with the same goal. I have never worked at a place where coworkers, regardless of level, are so committed to the success of each other and the company as a whole. Can't wait to see what the future holds!


    It's still considered a start-up though moving to a new office space in the Loop should help. Just be prepared to roll-up your sleeves and jump in where needed - there is a lot to do!

    Advice to Management

    Keep being open to the evolution of the company. It's an adjustment from a start-up to an established company, but don't let that transition get in the way of building a company that people will want to join and thrive at for years to come.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at M1 Finance (Chicago, IL) in March 2019.


    Phone call (video chat), in person with team, in person with CEO. Everything was pretty standard. They did ask me, multiple times, if I had any other questions. I had prepped around 5-7 in standard interview prep, but then didn't know what to do.

    Interview Questions

    • I cannot remember a specific question, but everything was pretty standard. I was asked to review the website & app and come up with feedback for improvements, but we didn't end up going through that on the interview. Apparently the CEO takes note of candidates downloading the app and signing up with their email.   Answer Question
