Interview Details – Was called by a recruiter from the CME Group, discussed the position and my background and my availablity for a phone interview. I went through the 1/2 hour phone interview with the manager of the group, went well. I came in for the interview with the manager and 5 other people, which took about 3 hours. Some of the people were laid back and some were very judgemental and rude. The huge disappointment was that I followed up with the recruiter and the manager and never heard back, which I found to be a bit unprofessional and arrogant. From reading other comments, that seems to be there MO, which is quite inconsiderate. I actually found I didnt get the job because someone else updated there linkedin with the job title.

Expectations of workers are pretty relaxed, largely owed to an established condition of frequently inoperable or poorly performing work environments (read: laptops & internal networks), which is almost excusable for a company that deals with what CME deals with. I feel there's a moderate work-life balance: the best of us will be somewhat overworked, but no one appears to be screaming about it. It's very normal to work 40 hours a week consistently, and enjoy your weekends free of interruption. If you are here to punch a card and go home, this is not a bad place to hang your hat. If you feel the fast pace of web development is not for you, this place may put you at ease. At the end of the day, it's just a job, it pays your bills, and you get to have the prestige of working for a great financial monolith that has over a hundred years of experience... at least vicariously. I can't speak ill of the Exchange's history and prestige as a fixture not only in Chicago, but the global economy. Seriously, it's a good company with a rich and impressive history that (hopefully) isn't going anywhere anytime soon.” – Full Review
