I have been working at Susquehanna International Group, LLP full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

- Opportunities for growth and impact if you seek them out or create them - and then pursue them
- Extremely talented employees; the most talented collection of technology employees in the region
- Fast paced and challenging, which may not be for everyone
- Great place to learn and grow; internal mobility opportunities are good
- Little bureaucracy, which can be difficult for those used to structure; politics do exist, but at a below average level
- Contrary to popular belief, managers are given ample discretion to provide flexibility for employees' hours and out of office time to address work/life balance challenges
- Nice onsite benefits such as a gym, fitness classes, wellness center, barber/hair stylist, catered lunch, continental breakfast, free bottled water, and .25 soft drinks
- Relaxed dress code and atmosphere

Cons

- Lack of transparency that causes unnecessary and unfounded fear, mild paranoia for some, and puzzlement over certain decisions; the firm truly cares about its employees but doesn't show it well
- Difficult to navigate the orginization - who works on what and for whom
- Too reactive to problems in the organization, but the firm addresses them when they surface. Many problems could be avoided by being more proactive.
- Health benefits, 401k, and pay could be more competitive, but are certainly not the worst in the region/industry

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay ahead of issues in the organization rather than reacting after they have become a problem.

    I have been working at Susquehanna International Group, LLP full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The caliber of people working for the company: consistently top-notch. Additional perks are nice - free breakfast and lunch, gym on site, wellness center, fitness classes - but come at a cost, namely that you're expected to work an additional hour that you would usually be eating lunch.

    Cons

    The cost of benefits have risen steadily, and this year's health care package costs almost 50% more than last year. Salaries and bonuses are not keeping pace. There have been a number of core people departing the company for green pastures, and you can't help but wonder if the compensation and benefits aren't a big part of those decisions.

    Technically, there is a tendency to stick with older, proven technologies and a resistance to moving forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to retain people, you have to pay them.
