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

    Pros

    People are mostly friendly and down to earth.
    Minimum politics.

    Cons

    Sometimes it takes an extra step to get things done or approved. When you know it, it won't bother much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more clear on the future plans.

    Pros

    -Smart people
    -Great pay
    -Quick advancement with the right manager and ambition
    -Great benefits

    Cons

    -Long hours
    -Excessive politics
    -Heavily silo'd organization
    -Some really smart people go underutilized

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kill the politics. Knock down the silos. You have (or had before ICE buyout anyway) some really brilliant people that could do amazing things without the politics getting in the way. Multiple times I saw teams fighting to own a process to get budget, or multiple teams building out the same tool or reinventing the wheel when it wasn't necessary.

    I worked at NYSE Euronext full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Company is Prestigious. Benefits are outstanding, Orientation and HR department is exceptionally good. Downtown NYC is a delightful place to work.

    Cons

    Not sure how anything gets done. Confusion because of mass changes resulting from going public, new systems, many mergers and acquisitions and now the attempt to sell itself to a foreign buyer. Hard to find out what's going on. Seems to be lots of fear by many of staff. Execs take themselves too seriously. NYC Culture deeply tied into old NYSE--a membership organization. Culture clash between US and several European staff that is deeply entrenched. Massive security can make this an unpleasant place to work at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency to all on who is who in organization. A T of O would help.. Must work to resolve culture clash because you have several organizations working against each other.

    ICE acquisition is destroying a great company.

    I have been working at NYSE Euronext full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Employee pay and benefits can be good, assuming you can get transitioned over to one of the ICE teams that has a future. There are still many smart people in development and QA, and if you have a good idea, it is possible to drive to through to implementation.

    Cons

    The ICE acquisition has led to 50% staff cuts, in many cases people are being fired from NY or Chicago so they can be re-hired in Atlanta at less salary. They're loosing lots of financial experience, and expect to operate as normal. In addition, the Atlanta office is very secretive -- they will seldom call or email the "Branch" offices in NY and make bad decisions with their limited information. Dissenters who speak up are quickly fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop screwing around with employees. Every day you turn one more screw to make things more difficult, and eventually people will leave.

    Pros

    Used to be a highly ethical and collegial work environment.

    Cons

    ice views on talent are shortsighted. the sharp elbowed culture that they have developed will lead to attrition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Humble yourself to recognize that you are in over your head and could benefit from institutional knowledge.

    I have been working at NYSE Euronext full-time for 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.
