    Pros

    Open collaborative culture, free lunches, decent benefits (for full-time employees), interesting people.

    Cons

    Secrecy between upper level management and the average employee seems to create a bit of distrust among employees. Salaries could be higher as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up the performance of the business to employees so that we know where the company stands.

    Former Employee - Assistant Trader in Bala Cynwyd, PA
    Former Employee - Assistant Trader in Bala Cynwyd, PA

    I worked at Susquehanna International Group, LLP full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Smart people
    -Sizable capital which allows traders to place big bets and take on considerable risk when it is +EV
    -Culture does not shy away from risk
    -Good investment in technology
    -Good buffets

    Cons

    -Mock trading is poorly structured. Too much time spent on mental math, not enough on developing practical skills that you will use as a trader.
    -In many groups you will learn nothing about trading during the trading day. Traders are too busy to bother teaching and ATs are pretty much kept busy with clerical duties and gain little insight into the trading process. It's a waste.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on trader development and teaching applicable skills during the trading day and during mocks. SIG is a good place to be a trader, but it's not a good place to learn about trading when you are starting out, which is unfortunate.

    Pros

    You get to play poker every day. The traders are all pretty cool. The food is incredible; they even have quidoba day.

    Cons

    The education part is tough, and the teachers are harsh. Also, the office is in the middle of nowhere outside of Philly.

    I have been working at Susquehanna International Group, LLP full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There is free breakfast and lunch everyday with a cafeteria that always has healthy snacks available, A well equipped 24x7 onsite gym that is going under construction soon to be expanded and upgraded. There is also an onsite nurse practitioner, dry cleaning service, and dozens of other perks

    Cons

    being in a support role, sometimes it is difficult to deal with the egos of traders when something isn't working. a lot of this is just due to them being under stress and realizing it isn't necessarily directed at you. As it is with any support role, problems sometimes occur that lead to late nights in the office.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bala Cynwyd, PA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bala Cynwyd, PA

    I worked at Susquehanna International Group, LLP full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I found the technical skills of the technology staff to be very strong on the whole. The work is interesting and SIG provided the tools to get things accomplished. The benefits provided are very good. On top of that, SIG gives many fringe benefits including an on-site gym with very good equipment, free breakfast (sometimes hot) and catered lunch daily, an on-site nurse, and more on-site services such as auto maintenance, car washing, and dry cleaning.

    Cons

    I found there to be heavy resistance to telecommuting. Working from home for occasional situations that come up is permitted, but nothing more. Also, in my experience, raises are rare.
