nice benefits, monopolistic industry position, slipping into petty bureaucratic politics

Former Employee - Functional Slave for Disfunctional Management Analyst! in Chicago, IL

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

Pros

above avg salary and benefits. One can assume a low profile here and survive a long time, assuming a high profile or speaking truth can be dangerous to one's longevity. Assume the lemming position and thrive on the monopolistic income stream.

Cons

big egos, nerdy techs, politics, inefficient managers trying desperately to hide the fact that they are two stations beyond their competency level. Insulated leadership. Arrogance with a capital A.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

you're not as smart as your salary, bennies, and stock options imply you are. lose the attitude. Lead for a change.
