    Pros

    Great place to work. Really depends on what group you're in. Front office groups are where you'll want to be. Very teacher / student type environment.

    Cons

    Very flat structure, which is both a pro and a con. It is a bit hard to determine what the next steps are for an employee who starts off on the low end of the totem pole.

    I worked at Susquehanna International Group, LLP full-time

    Pros

    They provided decent training, and give traders time to prove themselves. They have more capital than many other shops. Systems are ok, but not great.

    Cons

    Little upside potential. Lots of red tape. Quite a few people in upper management probably should not be there. Pay is substantially below market levels.

    Pros

    Great place to start a career, further a career, and end a career. People at SIG are intelligent and understand the business need from both the technology and business side. Very Tech friendly and easily was rated top company to work for by Forbes 2 years in a row. Great place to work.

    Cons

    Tech presence in NYC is minimal. Engineering opportunities mostly (if not all) in PA. Further opportunity in the NYC area for Engineering on the horizon but not quite there yet.

    Advice to Management

    Expand NYC technology presence. Bolster Engineering and Software opportunities. Bolster university recruiting for schools in the NY/NJ area (when more opportunities are available) Good things will happen!
