    I have been working at SMB Capital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    strong python scripting tools; generous with buying power for consistently profitable traders; new/developing traders "graduate to" a team headed by a senior trader, where there is opportunity to contribute to knowledge / strategy base and receive valuable mentorship in return; highly structured training program for brand new traders

    Cons

    skill development, especially with the python tools, requires lots of self-direction and stamina; quite modest risk (i.e. buying power, daily drawdown limit, etc) given to new traders, which means little earning potential, but that's chiefly because nearly all new traders initially lack the skills and knowledge base to trade profitably on the intraday timeframe; some "siloing" of knowledge / strategies among individual teams

    Advice to Management

    keep investing in team development; better incentivize that some work be done for the "good of the company" rather than just for the "good of the individual" or the "good of the team"

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SMB Capital (New York, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Met with one of the owners to talk about my qualifications after speaking to another worker on the phone (pre-screen). I was met in their New York office by the initial interviewer, followed by speaking with the owner in his office. The interview was average in length, probably 30 minutes.
