    I worked at CME Group as an intern for less than a year


    Very little hierarchy. Great people. Interesting and unique work. Appreciate all perspectives. At the intersection of many different aspects of the industry.


    Lack of HR process and procedures. Somewhat out of touch with the rest of the financial industry. Leadership structure that is at times hard to understand and work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Emulate other financial institutions when it comes to recruitment and leadership structure.
