    I worked at NYSE Euronext as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great work life balance, decent pay for the industry, low expectations for those who enjoy that sort of environment. Good place to go if you enjoy the status quo. Strong future based on brand alone.

    Cons

    No growth opportunities. VERY political environment. Culture clashes between old guard and newer acquisitions. Heavy reliance on contract workers.

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

    Pros

    My team was fun to get to know, small, and in our own little division, which allowed us some freedom to do creative things.

    Cons

    Our day-to-day tasks were completely mindless and every second of the day passed by extremely slowly. Could just be a personal preference for more meaningful work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow the team to designate tasks for themselves and to restructure outdated processes.

    I worked at NYSE Euronext as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    hands-on experience, lots of opportunities to explore different areas of interest. Good and constructive reviews from superiors who really cared about interns' experience and growth. Loved trading floor tour and the opening bells.

    Cons

    Some formal training programs were cancelled due to unavailability of presenters. But no big deal since I was able to make up for it by learning in practice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the collegiate and collaborative morale when going through the merger process now.

    Current Employee - Business Analyst in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Business Analyst in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    - Senior level transparency; Duncan (CEO) is a great culture builder and makes Business Analysts feel empowered to change and contribute to the growth of the company
    - Access to the historic exchange floor; from celebrities to politicians, one can see all types of interesting people pass through the exchange
    - Corporate resources and events; good perks and cohesive community

    Cons

    Cons are usually group-specific. In light of the ICE merger, uncertainty reigns in some groups while other groups feel and know they are safe. The primary area for improvement is the syloed nature of various exchange groups and not knowing what others are doing, but that's most likely a result of any large corporation with a diversified revenue stream.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the communication lines open! Also, if you're recruiting top talent at the analyst level, make sure you have interesting, demanding, and rigorous enough work for them to do.
