Fast paced and challenging but chaotic
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – 2 August 2017
It was a really fun place to work. The pace is great for those who love a busy day. There tended to be a lack of focus on long term strategy and there is a lot of "fire fighting" which doesn't leave much time for building best practices. Everyone is very smart, which was great, but for most people there is a lack of a career path. That is to be expected in the prop trading industry.
Free lunch, annual company trip, great benefits and comp, a lot of social events
Tough work life balance for most, inconsistent management, lack of career path for most
