    I have been working at NYSE Euronext full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There has been significant change over the last 1-2 years in senior management. Great to see more focus on the nurturing and growth of a technical career path to increase career opportunity.

    Exciting and fast paced financial industry.

    Very competitive remuneration package.

    Great culture, great teams with very high caliber of software engineers.

    Flexible working / work life balance, social events etc.

    Limited parking in Belfast office, but then so would any company in a prime location in the center of the city. Public transport is very reliable.

    Pros

    A good place for IT specialists, developers and programmers
    Friendly culture. Central Belfast office

    Cons

    American management very hierarchical, hero worship of CEO encouraged.
    Obsequiousness rather than the skilled and experienced staff are rewarded.
    Some departments run more like fiefdoms than democracies.
    For example the line manager actually uttered the gem: "you are paid to do, not to think".
    Why hire people with degrees, if this is the case?
    Many worried and demoralised by upcoming ICE merger.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote existing skilled staff. Root out managers that are known to bully

    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

    Pros

    The money isnt too bad for belfast, and the team i work in is a good team. at a team level im happy

    Cons

    The company doesnt seem interested in keeping its best people some of the other teams are not very helpful. Internal politics seems to play a bigger part than previously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While a hero culture isnt maintainable you need to keep the best of your staff. Putting staff out in an area where they are exposed to other companies that will pay much more for them and not adjusting salaries etc is not smart.
