Pros & Cons

  • Stimulating, meritocratic, intense
  • Flat Hierarchy, causal dress code, caring culture
  • Friendly environment, everyone very willing to teach and help out. Every day is different depending on news.
  • Small, young, meritocratic, lots of room for progression, fun coworkers
  • Lots of really smart people who are always happy to teach you. Challenging job, tons to learn. Company growing really fast, so opportunities to genuinely contribute. Great pay + perks.
  • The intellectual challenge. Constantly being pushed to learn new ideas which makes everyday interesting and stimulating. Doing it as part of the grad team has been really good fun as you all work together towards the same goals.
  • Intensity isn't for everyone
  • Fast-paced, which means you have to make sure you are keeping up
  • Early mornings, quite periods interspersed with busy so not as regular flow compared to other jobs.
  • Long hours (although not relative to say investment banking) and you have to stay focused all day (not a lot of downtime)
  • It's hard work and intellectually difficult, which can be tiring.

Satisfaction
Started with a mixture of group training exercises, classroom sessions and simulation training during grad training. Now I trade live on the market throughout the day and are in control of my own book which I am responsible for. Spend time during the day thinking about ways to optimize my setup and improve my strategy via analysis.
