    Great financial company to work for.

    ProsPrivately owned corporation. Very flexible with hours and work day-to-day tasks. No micromanaging of employees. Tasks are very straightforward and relatively easy to accomplish.

    ConsTasks can be very repetitive and mundane. Not much interaction with direct manager (good or bad). Expectations of role are not clearly defined. Sharing of knowledge is sometimes painful. Career path very unclear.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would suggest taking advice from other companies in the financial district - keep the employees well informed, make clear career paths and promotion availability. Start to require management to live up to higher expectations and not behave like a "family" business, but more like a "top" business in "grandfathering" in management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work for pay and financial possibilities. Lacks in system stability and employer-employee line-of-sight.

    Programmer Analyst (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsGreat pay. Fairly low stress. Slow learning curve. Low expectations. Firm is (currently) privately held. Downtown Chicago. Nice employee referral program. Great resume stuffer.

    It's a great "in" if you are in the Financial field or have an interest in Options and/or Stock. Lots of knowledgable people who have been around since the early days of CBOE.

    ConsPoor working relationships. Poor direct management supervision. Poor performance planning and management. Poor project management. Poor project execution. Low quality technological system.

    There seem to be serious disconnects between the average employee and the overall direction of the company. Projects are often discombobulated, hard to implement, hard to follow, hard to clean up. With multiple projects being implemented, one on top of the other, the quality of the system would seem to be compromised. The employees that have been here for a while often come across as arrogant and can be difficult to work with, requiring other employees to pry information out of them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember to keep the vision and goals of the organization strong and obvious to all levels of employees at the firm and create employee engagement as well as strong career paths.
