    Good place to learn but IT is rapidly racking up bad karma

    I have been working at CME Group full-time (more than 10 years)


    This is a great place to learn the financial IT ropes. Its a big organization but people are friendly and helpful. I've never seen the backstabbing here that is rumored to be at other orgs. Good benefits with subsidized gym on site. Budgets for IT are usually approved.


    Consistently laying off respected employees for cost reasons. Moral goes down, people get back to work and try to forget and it happens again. Its obvious that they want to cut more but don't want to pay the severance checks. Then the grueling hours come and they wait to see who breaks. Someday this will crash something important. Lots of technical debt being incurred. Come and learn but don't get lulled by the music.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company shot to the top on the backs of hard workers. Having each others backs was part of the company culture and that is being sacrificed for short term goals.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at CME Group.

    Interview Details

    After receiving your resume, the HR consulting firm would reach you, arranging the interview.
    The first round is phone interview, the second round(I did not enter in that round) would be paper test and face to face interview.
    The content of the interview was comprehensive, including a lot of C++ questions, such as the diff between pass by name/reference, the benefit of initialization list, containers, etc; some typical brain teaser questions; and financial questions like the GARCH models, put-call parity and the Greeks
