    Pros

    Free lunch, good hours and pay

    Cons

    Management is very secretive and does not value it's employees at all. Zero transparency and they will actually lie to your face. Lots of office politics and you feel like a number and are constantly looking over your shoulder. Not a good work environment at all and it is all because of management.

    Pros

    It is the best company in the options trading world. There are great people and great opportunities to be had at Susquehanna.

    Cons

    You have to get up early and do close to the same thing every day. It is hard to say when you have done well until all the profits shake out on expiration.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your employees less as commodities and more to what their specific skills are. I feel as though I am grouped in with all the other traders when I feel that I have unique skills.
