I have been working at NYSE Euronext

Pros

Team level - excellent. Great group with some very smart people
Flexible working - as long as core hours are covered, and the freedom isn't exploited
Very good benefit package
Always busy - never going to be bored due to lack of work

Cons

VP title given out far too freely - too many grand titles for doing the same work that their subordinates do.
No career progression unless you can talk the talk, not walk the walk.
Money is below industry standard, even in Northern Ireland

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer better training and a career progression path

No opinion of CEO

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at NYSE Euronext

    Pros

    Name recognition
    Work from home is allowed
    CEO communicates with all employees directly

    Cons

    Promotions are not merit based, but rather based on who you know.
    Every Quarter there is "Reduction in Force" due to the latest Synergy goals.
    Method for letting people go is obscure, in most cases senior management takes the decision without knowing who does what and that leads to people being told "you are leaving, oops, you are not leaving anymore because we found out we actually need you".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate Senior Management positions (Senior VP) and let go the ones that little or no management and people skills

    A Company without a Mission

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at NYSE Euronext

    Pros

    +Decent name brand recognition
    +Huge platform with an enormous number of different business segments and global offices

    Cons

    -Complete inability to recognize waste and mismanagement (multiple multi-million dollar projects got scrapped and a hire/fire approach with contractors destroyed any esprit de corps)
    -Wider company refuses to recognize that ridiculous overhead destroys its ability to compete with ECNs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring contractors, start hiring employees, and really think about what it is that makes your company competitive. Eliminate anything that doesn't contribute to that mission.
