Best Places to Work: 2011 (#10)
I have been working at Susquehanna International Group full-time (More than 3 years)
Free catered lunch and breakfast
Free on-site gym
Lots of free or discounted services such as on-site nurse, dry cleaning, car repair and detailing, haircuts
Company sponsored events at Phillies games and family friendly locations
The managers of my department have consistently treated me with respect and make me feel valued
minimum 45 hour work weeks
no official lunch breaks - lunches are working lunches
bathrooms can get crowded, but they are working to improve that
Advice to Management
This is more like advice to present and potential employees of SIG. Any company of significant size is like a group of neighborhoods. A person's experience at a company can be vastly different from department to department, depending on their duties and who their supervisors are. I have no idea what it's like to be a trader there or to work in IT. But my department has the best managers of any company I've ever worked for, and nearly everyone I've had personal dealings with in other departments has been helpful, courteous, and professional. Is it perfect? No, no place is, but I've seen what it's like at other places (based on over 20 years in the workforce) and this is BY FAR the best work environment I've ever been a part of. If you work hard, you will be rewarded.
I applied online. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group.
i applied online. a week or 2 later, a recruiter from the company wanted to set up a phone interview.
the entire interview process was a mess. a different person called me when my interview was scheduled to start because the original interviewer had to attend an "important meeting"; that surely says a lot about time management on their end.
i could easily tell that the interviewer didn't want to be on the phone in the first place - the interviewer sounded stressed i.e. she was in a hurry to do something.
sloppy and unprofessional!
