What did you like best about working here as a co-op?

SIG offers exposure that you cannot find at other companies. Being surrounded by so much technology, I enjoyed learning about the way the markets functioned before technology was such a dominant force in finance. I had the opportunity to take on a project to build an Excel-based system that would generate live PnL estimates for a few of the major trading desks. The more I was able to develop my technical skills, the more opportunities I had to contribute to interesting projects that had real impact. The most rewarding aspect of this project was seeing the information my system produced being used to track firm performance throughout the day.
