    I have been working at Susquehanna International Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    * SIG employs some very smart people solving some interesting problems. People are generally collaborative and good ideas are not shot down. The one negative about this is that SIG can have a difficult time filling many positions in tech, since expectations are very high and the right candidate may not be ready available.
    * Flat management structure. I can literally schedule a meeting and talk with anyone in technology. I won't get turned away.
    * If you are excelling at what you do, you are generally noticed and challenged more.
    * If you have ideas, management will listen and there is a good chance it can be implemented. Money spends can be justified and are not a barrier.
    * It's a financial industry company, but with a relaxed atmosphere and dress code. This means jeans (and shorts in the summer).
    * Good leadership at the top. The company thrives even in very tough markets.
    * Catered lunch and breakfast
    * Onsite gym and many other services like dry-cleaning pick up and onsite haircuts. There is even a fancy espresso bar. These are generally designed to avoid losing employee productivity time due to employees running out of the office, but they are nice perks.
    * Various company events, like holiday parties, night at the ballpark, 5k runs, etc. There is definitely a good social culture.

    Cons

    * Lack of a policy that allows employees to work from home. There are exceptions in certain cases, and this is changing a bit, but slowly compared to other tech-heavy companies.
    * The management structure is fairly flat. However, this also impacts the ability to get things done. You really do need to build consensus across many teams to get major initiatives done, and this will take time.
    * Hours can get long and impact the work-life balance, especially with the lack of work from home policy. This is fairly standard in the tech space unfortunately.
    * Few public transit options to / from work for those who live in Philadelphia itself (SIG is just outside of Philly).

    Advice to Management

    * Continue to modernize your work from home policy. This is almost expected in the modern technology space.
    * As the business continues to grow, make sure you don't lose the "SIG" culture.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Susquehanna International Group (Providence, RI) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Applied through college online portal and was scheduled for an on-campus interview. The interview lasted around 30-45 minutes. The interviewer was very nice despite me struggling with the questions. A few simple behavioral questions and 3 brainteasers.
