    Pros

    Fast paced, challenging environment. Great staff, knowledgeable, helpful and all-around great people to work with.

    Cons

    Long commute for me and no longer allows telecommuting (except for unusual situations like severe weather conditions).

    Advice to Management

    Reinstate telecommuting as a normal way of business.

    I have been working at NYSE full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company was very open-minded on how to be the best. If you had a good idea, could back it up they gave you the reins and budget to try it. While every place has politics, for the most part, it was not tolerated. And good people progressed in the company. Management truly tried to keep everyone, at all levels, focused on the company's objectives and informed on developments

    Cons

    The company has been acquired and is now very different. Most of the former management is gone.

    I worked at NYSE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Company is Prestigious. Benefits are outstanding, Orientation and HR department is exceptionally good. Downtown NYC is a delightful place to work.

    Cons

    Not sure how anything gets done. Confusion because of mass changes resulting from going public, new systems, many mergers and acquisitions and now the attempt to sell itself to a foreign buyer. Hard to find out what's going on. Seems to be lots of fear by many of staff. Execs take themselves too seriously. NYC Culture deeply tied into old NYSE--a membership organization. Culture clash between US and several European staff that is deeply entrenched. Massive security can make this an unpleasant place to work at times.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency to all on who is who in organization. A T of O would help.. Must work to resolve culture clash because you have several organizations working against each other.

    Pros

    People are mostly friendly and down to earth. Minimum politics.

    Cons

    Sometimes it takes an extra step to get things done or approved. When you know it, it won't bother much.

    Advice to Management

    Be more clear on the future plans.
