    Pros

    Good exposure to buy/sell side clients on wall street. Younger team with decent social environment. Learn a lot related to electronic markets.

    Cons

    Salary isn't as competitive as buy/sell side firms. People tend to be very busy so you must fend for yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a stronger career management program, and shift a larger portion of the variable compensation to base base.

    Pros

    Great brand and culture prior to ICE. In general a fun place to work on the technologies side. Compensation and experience is great.

    Cons

    Since ICE acquired everything has been downhill unfortunately. They've sold off many lines of business and at the moment, most people's jobs are in jeopardy of being cut. ICE has high profit margins and don't really care about work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much to say as upper management don't have a lot of control over all the current shakeups that have been occurring due to the ICE acquisition.

    Pros

    Known brand recognition and dynamic environment.

    Cons

    Too much change as of late. There is a lack of direction and knowing whether your job is secure or not is unsettling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more with your employees. This is not needed at the Executive Level but at a Managerial level.

    Pros

    Competitive pay, prestigious name looks great on resume.

    Cons

    No one really knows what is going on with the recent ICE acquisition. Senior management is pretty quiet - but that may be because they, like the rest of us have no idea of what is really going on. Lots of uncertainty about the future - not good for employee morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Note to ICE - Break down the old school silo system of the NYSE. Let the people who really do the work interact with their colleagues directly without having to go up the chain and then down the chain. Many senior management folks that were originally hire back the 80s/90's need to be brought into the 21st century. The old school is dead, and so will be the NYSE if it is allowed to keep living in the past.

    Pros

    Challenging work, good personal branding working for such a long established exchange globally. Good salary, bonus and benefits. Lots of opportunity to participate in charitable events.

    Cons

    The current environment is one of uncertainty since the ICE purchase and the continuation of eroding market share. So this adds up to no sense of job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for opportunity's the exchange
    Jbs at the Management level will continue to erode.
