Development manager at NYSE Euronext

Managing Director (Former Employee) New York, NY

ProsName brand, history, and global-presence.
The historical NYSE building and trading floor.
On-site amenities: medical center, cafeteria, bar and restaurant.

ConsThe NYSE is a mix of traditional business and newly acquired businesses or partnership, some of which overlap in function. This makes it difficult to understand strategy, and there is no communicated forward planning vision. The overall strategy on the technology side was a push towards a service business by offering co-location and hosting. While the physical implementation was successful in the building of the data centers, it is unclear how software fits into the business.

Extensive internet monitoring means network access is slow or often broken when doing internet research. Difficult to get better than "corporate" standard computers, meaning that developers have to struggle with out dated or inadequate equipment (minimum RAM, small monitors). Many obstacles to innovation.

Bureaucracy appears to extend towards corporate systems. The purchasing system is outdated and takes excessively long to procure (months to 1/2 year). HR/intranet system are outdated and require outdated IE/WinXP.

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunications (town halls, etc) between upper management and worker ranks are not concretely substantive. There is a lot of feel good spin. Middle level management do not know how to convey direction or vision to their ranks.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
