    I worked at CME Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You have the opportunity to work with talented individuals. You can learn a lot abot all different aspects of exchange futures trading.

    Cons

    Usually, management does not want to hear about your opinions or ideas. The subjective annual reviews are often unfair and do not reflect the actual effetiveness of the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Older workers should not be forced to leave when many of them have wisdom and experience that cannot be acquired in a year or two.
