    Pros

    SIG give you the tools and environment to succeed. Great laid back culture. Smart people. Good performance is rewarded financially

    Cons

    I can't really think of anything bad. Sometimes there can be too much bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for giving me this opportunity. It is a pleasure to work here and not one taken for granted.

    I worked at Susquehanna International Group, LLP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of smart people For a software developer, great opportunities in high-performance computing Casual dress including shorts between Memorial and Labor days Great Xmas party

    Cons

    Free lunch is great in the beginning until (1) you put on the "freshman 15" and (2) they become so repetitive that you end up seeking a referral from your doctor for a cure from boredom.

    Advice to Management

    You have creative employees. Don't drive them so hard: the human body doesn't work like that. Be aware that you have a lot of technical debt that is costing you in the long run.

    Pros

    Free food, no dress code, relaxed environment, excellent benefits and perks
