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

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

    I worked at CME Group full-time (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.
