    I worked at TransMarket Group part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back dress code and free lunches.

    Cons

    Terrible comp. Firm seems to be filled with very subpar people (many experienced people have a terrible track record, new hires from distinctly average colleges). All the smart people from top colleges seem to be elsewhere. Many managers come in once a week. CEO tries to shove Christianity down your throat at every turn and I'm guessing this will also factor into whether you get made partner or not. Extremely high turnover. Dubious charity work (voluntourism trip to Haiti? seriously? sure let's go over to take pictures of us digging holes at 1/10th the speed of the locals and crash their construction labor market while we're at it). Food not great. I got a job at a (much better) competitor. Avoid like the plague

    Quantitative Trader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at TransMarket Group in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online with my CV for the position of Quantitative Trader Intern position. A week later I received an e-mail to arrange a phone interview.
    The phone interview was a combination of light HR questions and mainly brainteasers. Unfortunately, I failed so I cannot provide information for the rest of the recruitment process.

    Interview Questions
