    I have been working at NYSE Euronext full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I loved the people I worked with and the work was challenging at times. The 9-5 was a nice change of pace. It was great to have access to the floor for bells and access to trading.

    Cons

    I was there for 8 years. Things changed dramatically with all the acquisitions and now with the ICE takeover there is a great deal of uncertainty all around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose sight of who gets the job done. These people are working as hard as they can and really need to know they are appreciated.

    Pros

    Challenging work, good personal branding working for such a long established exchange globally. Good salary, bonus and benefits. Lots of opportunity to participate in charitable events.

    Cons

    The current environment is one of uncertainty since the ICE purchase and the continuation of eroding market share. So this adds up to no sense of job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for opportunity's the exchange
    Jbs at the Management level will continue to erode.

    Fast pace, prestigious environment with set hours

    Some say the NYSE is outdated, and all for show

    Figure out a way to create more exclusive trading sequences, and extend the IPO launch and parties to everyone!

    I worked at NYSE Euronext part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my coworkers. Everyone from the executive level down was extremely friendly and professional. The after-work fringe benefits of all the listed companies was fantastic- 4th of July BBQ with Budweiser, St. Patricks Day with Guinness and Jameson, Cinco de Mayo with Corona and Jose Cuervo. Also, walking past the Trading Floor everyday made it feel like I was part of something big and historic.

    Cons

    A lot of people of moved on since the merger and any future opportunities are cloudy for the near future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let the culture and hard work of your employees get swallowed up in the merger.

    Pros

    Great colleagues and a sense of empowerment to do your best work. Ability to voice your opinion without fear of retaliation, good benefits, volunteer opportunities and flexible work environments, such as teleworking.

    Cons

    Acquired by Intercontinental Exchange. Very different work culture. Seems to value keeping your head down and working long hours. At first glance very "Dickensian" though early days yet. Hopefully morale will improve (without any flogging).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication; true integration of existing policies that work. Try harder not to come off as forcing a perceived "square" peg into a round hole.
