    I have been working at TransMarket Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Everything is merit-based, if you are good you move up fast. A lot of great minds and sharing of strategies/technology. Management cares about employees and tries hard to put them in positions where they can excel. Great office culture - laid back but competitive

    Cons

    Long interview process, sometimes long hours (but not like i-banking)

    "Summer Trading Intern"

    I have been working at TransMarket Group for less than a year

    Pros

    The firm’s culture could not be better. Everyone in the office is friendly and supportive. There is no dress code, and people are very willing to collaborate with one another. There was no sense of cutthroat competition within the firm which this industry is sometimes characterized with. Additionally, the firm held many firm-wide and intern social events outside the office that helped unify the culture and allowed people to meet others in the firm at other desks whom they would otherwise have limited exposure to. Interns were essentially treated as fulltime employees with the exception that they do not get to trade themselves. Interns are assigned to a single desk throughout the summer where they shadow traders and work on meaningful projects. There was also a superb intern training program which consisted of classroom questions on reading assignments, case studies, firm models, and trading games. Another great thing about this internship is that the firm is truly looking for interns to continue to become full-time employees.

    Cons

    There is an extensive interview process consisting of three phone interviews (2 technical, 1 character), a 24 hour take home test on trading, and a full day in person interview. While it may be grueling, part of the reason for this seems to be because they are looking for potential full-time employees not just summer interns. The hours are also long; traders generally work ten hour days so if you aren’t very interested in or don’t enjoy trading this will not be a good fit for you.
