    I worked at Susquehanna International Group (SIG) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Agendas are transparent. For the most part, people want to make a lot of money without cheating. I had never worked in finance, and I expected the worst. I was pleasantly surprised by the emotional maturity of the senior traders I met. They were generally calm and reasonable under pressure. They did not throw phones, scream at subordinates, or act like sociopaths. Management did not attempt to control every detail of my life. My boss did not contact me outside normal hours except in extraordinary situations. When someone interrupted me at work, it was almost always for a legitimate reason. When senior quants overruled me, they were usually correct. Most desks spent relatively little time on ego battles, office politics, and the usual playground stuff that dominates American tech companies. Everyone was too busy making money. Nobody pressured me to do anything illegal.

    Cons

    During normal office hours, employees were expected to be at their desks almost constantly, even when eating lunch. That working style is common among traders, but somewhat stifling for others. I work better by taking long breaks when I'm stuck, then racing at maximum overdrive when I know what to do. Quant work mostly consists of dull and frustrating data cleaning. I don't think this is the company's fault; it's the nature of the job. With supportive teammates, it's not so bad.
