I worked at CME Group full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Fantastic benefits and a very competitive salary.

Cons

Good old boy network. Lots of Fraternity buddies in various departments. Just playing at Agile Development, not practicing it. If you are not "in" with one of these groups, advance can be very difficult.
