I have been working at Chicago Board Options Exchange

Pros

Regulatory Division is severely understaffed so there is plenty of work to go around. Regulatory sector of the Securities industry is the one sector that is actually expanding, a job in the regulatory division at an exchange is a great resume builder for a future job at a private firm.

Cons

I feel as if Senior Regulatory management is under-educated. Most of them have moved up the ladder because of their complacency with their jobs rather than their work. CBOE is bringing in over qualified investigators/examiners at entry levels but they are lawyers, CPA's, ex-Market Makers while senior management lacks advanced degrees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Although CBOE is now a publicly traded company and has to respond to shareholders their regulatory division needs too beef up their staff. Also try to retain some talent, try paying your employees more and they would stick around rather than work there for 5 years and jump for the first private firm compliance department that shows any interest.
