    Pros

    If you have a passion for the markets and want to become a successful proprietary equity trader than Trillium Trading is the right firm for you. As a trader, you have the opportunity to build a long and very profitable career here with hard work and a steadfast drive. If you are unwilling to put in hard work and don't have the ability to learn from others and your own mistakes then this gig isn't for you. There is a steep learning curve and it is different for everyone. It's very challenging but also highly rewarding. You must be coachable - if you think you don't need guidance and believe you know everything there is to trading then you will fail. If you are considering other prop firms and have done your research, it's easy to see why Trillium is far superior.

    Trillium invests in the traders and all the infrastructure to support them. The back office tech team is constantly making improvements to the trading platform and is overwhelming accommodating to traders' needs.

    The environment and culture at Trillium is the best I have ever been apart of.

    Cons

    Not everyone has the right personality and skill-set to be a trader.

    Advice to Management

    Keep putting the traders' needs first.

    Bagel Tuesdays are nice. Pizza Fridays would be great.

    Phone screening interview then in person interview. I was never contacted after my in person interview. Math test and logic/reasoning test. Average interview difficulty. Next step would have been an interview with a trader.
