Positive Outlook

I worked at Belvedere Trading full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The people are great. It's definitely competitive, but most people want to see you succeed.
The compensation is great and the office is very casual and fun.

Cons

The industry can be pretty stressful, and things can get heated around bonus time. Not many exit opportunities unless you want to stay in trading long term.

    "Fun visible atmosphere, but also hidden stress"

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere with people who are from all different backgrounds. You have the college athletes, the mathletes, and everyone in between. It's a very fast-paced environment, so the people are always loud and in your face, so be prepared to get worked... but also learn a lot.

    Cons

    Just monotonous. It's a fun environment, sure, but the concepts and their proprietary models are tough to understand. You can ask questions, but only a few people can explain them to you anyway, and usually they are busy trading.

    Advice to Management

    While the work environment is very relaxed and probably every employee enjoys being a part of the team, there seems to be a strong feeling of fear within the employees in regard to top management.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Belvedere Trading as an intern

    Pros

    Great group of people. Everyone is willing to help and teach throughout the internship. Summer events really help you get to know more people in the company and the classroom time is also run very well.

    Cons

    The company is rather small so it does not have as many products as some of the bigger prop shops in Chicago.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aggressive with growth. Push for more products to trade and get more experts to back those products. Management is moving in the right direction just can move faster.
