    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management consists of some of the most saavy traders that exist. So saavy that I have no advice at this time.

    I have been working at Susquehanna International Group, LLP full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been working here over 18 years and have loved the experience. it is a very challenging, fast pace, and intellectual environment. Company continually strives to improve itself. Culture is very flat, and there is easy and open access to management. Employees are encouraged to come up with new and innovative strategies. Employees work well with each other, and it often has a collegiate feel. Weekends off and free lunch and breakfast a plus.

    Cons

    You have to work through lunch due to market hours.
