    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

    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.
