      OP
      Is the stock, sign on, or base higher? I have been told by multiple full times that this is the highest intern rating

      Are you thinking PhD or post negotiation? I sampled about 80 interns and no one got this. Could you point me to a post with this listed?

    Optiver does not pay or treat devs well. Fb would be better. I've heard tower
    is not doing well either (but this is very much not confirmed).

      The new grad dev offer is good compared to a few tech places but not good for a trading firm. Facebooks compensation beats Optiver for sure for at least the first 3 years and probably more if OP is able to get a GE offer. Work hours at Optiver is also much higher compared to fb and Optiver isn't as automated/reliant on devs compared to a few other firms.

      Yeah it does seem like their salaries are lower than other prop firms... do you have any insight on what the common working hours are?

    Know you said you're looking for .a change of scenery but with GE you should be able to get FB NYC office if thats your jam. I got NYC and bump up to 100k signing by just promising to sign fast didn't have competing offer yet.
