          Pros

          Great people all across the firm. Management is easy going, you work to your strengths. Free breakfast and lunch. I truly enjoy working at SIG - It is a pleasant place to work.

          Cons

          No telecommuting or flexibility with hours. No true lunch break to run errands.

            I worked at Susquehanna International Group full-time for more than 10 years

            Pros

            Some cutting-edge technology. Recession-proof company. Decent bonuses. Some sections much better than others.

            Cons

            I worked for this company for 10 years and had some horrible experiences. Some people are impressed by the free breakfast and lunch but this just means the company gets another hour of work out of you in a mandatory 45 hour + week. The interview process is brutal and you often don't hear the results. The company is very conscious about paying as little as possible by way of salaries and using whatever leverage they can...

            Advice to Management

            Pay as much attention to removing bad managers as you do to the rank-and-file employees. Bad manager should not be retained and promoted as is the custom. Don't try to squeeze every last penny and hour out of each employee while raking in so much profit. You can afford to be a little bit more generous when you have your own helicopter pad

            I have been working at Susquehanna International Group full-time for less than a year

            Pros

            Emphasis on learning and development of incoming “Quantitative Trader” class, who mostly have no financial experience. Get to play poker on the job.

            Cons

            Can sometimes feel very competitive or start to question if SIG will keep you around if you are not performing. Work ~50 hours / week total, but are very well compensated for having only a BS. Some parts of the education program feel archaic and outdated. Forced to sign a 3 year non-compete in order to go through the proprietary trading class.

            "Assistant Trader"

            StarStarStarStarStar
              Former Employee - Assistant Trader 

              I worked at Susquehanna International Group full-time for less than a year

              Pros

              Assistant Traders get placed seemingly randomly at different desks on the trading floor. Most co-workers are pretty chill, but depending on your desk you could work anywhere from 45 to 65 hours a week.

              Cons

              Could work up to 65 hours. (see above)
