SIG is a place where you can learn almost anything. They are constantly changing trying new technologies and are constantly redesigning systems and software. It is a gold mine for the new comer and young employee. However, older people do not advance too often and over time SIG pays less and less and does not keep up with inflation. Therefore you are underpaid more and more the longer you stay. In other words, they favor the younger innovators.

Healthcare is subpar, salaries are below competitiveness, poor management skills
Financial Operations Analyst (Current Employee) – PA – 29 November 2013
SIG is a dynamic and enjoyable place to work, I learned many aspects of the trading industry and expanded my technical skills, especially with Excel and Access. The employees are the best and the brightest, and collaborating with so many intelligent and driven people on a daily basis has been a rewarding experience. A typical day at SIG for me consists of pulling financial data for the various departments within the firm and producing expense reports, variation analysis and P&L summaries. The hardest part of the job is coordinating various data sources to produce the expected outcome. The most enjoyable part is being able to see all aspects of the company at a firmwide level and interacting with all of the department heads on a regular basis.
