    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 a 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

    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.
