among other things is well known in Chicago for being a first class option mm who treats their employees fairly.
Hardrock, can you be a <i>little</i> more specific?
No, really, thank you all a lot.
I have been on Susquehanna's upstairs trading floor a few times (their old Philly office and their Bala Cynwyd office).
Unlike the stogy typical investment banks, the office appears to be generally younger people just trading different things (like convertibles or ADR arbitrage). Merit system instead of other places (i.e., seniority, better connections, etc.).
Casual atmosphere. Lunch provided.
Good comaraderie. Team work is the key. if you are not part of the team, then you are not welcome at Susquehanna.
Good group of people.
I would rank them as a good group of collective market wisdom since they share information together to make better trading decisions. For example, if their traders in the S&P pit are seeing strong buying, they will let all traders know through their internal system and the other traders can plan accordingly.
trade QQQ's lately?
Susquehanna is the AMEX specialist for them.
seth, I should have put this under the 'hook up' category.
They provide the fastest bullet executions!!!!
What do you mean by this - I know the statement is obvious, but I am not sure how I can benefit from this?
