I worked at Chicago Board Options Exchange

Pros

A solid company with an inordinate number of friendly and competent people. For such a large organization, CBOE is able to keep all employees "rowing" the same way.

Cons

Very few downsides. Those few individuals who had their own agenda usually get weeded out.

    I have been working at Chicago Board Options Exchange full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work, teamwork essential, good money and benefits, and a variety of work projects. Production support can be stressful but is only about 25% of your job. Results-based management style, very technically strong management (no pointy-haired bosses here!).

    Cons

    There is only one promotion ladder, so the best programmers eventually end up being managers, directors, or VPs, unless you don't want a raise. Permanent positions are being eliminated and replaced by offshore (and onshore) outsourcing and contractors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are very weak on advanced technology training. Teach me JDK 8, Python, or open-source projects that will eventually make our development cycle, QA installation procedures, and ultimately our trading systems more efficient.
