Overall, the environment is very challenging, but rewarding.
Company benefits such as tuition, paid time off and insurance are by far the best I've seen in the industry.
Advice to Management
The environment at Newedge is changing due to the regulations in the industry. However, there are no proper programs to guide and train staff to become familiar with the new regulations. I highly suggest that training programs are implemented to improve the performance of staff.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Newedge (Chicago, IL) in October 2014.
Great company to work for, potential growth, great benefits and good pay! At least that's what I was told during the interview. I applied for this position and passed both the first and second interview process. I also passed the background and reference process. Generally, after a week or two you receive a letter or call from your potential employer letting you know your start date, etc. I waited a month to hear back from their in-house recruiter regarding my start date, but never received a call or email. I had to chase down the process; to only find out from their in-house recruiter they (Societe Cenerale) decided to make the full-time position I applied for a contract position. It get's better, the following day the same full-time position was posted on-line again as a FULL-TIME position. Lucky for me I didn't give my two weeks notice to my current employer, before assuming my position with Newedge. Possibly a good company, but lack of professionalism. New Hire(s) beware!
