    I have been working at NYSE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Great vacation time with decent work-life balance - Opportunity to meet with C-level executives on a daily basis - Exposure to a wide variety of companies, media and industries - Smaller company creates a closer knit community of people - in terms of the people I work with - they are great - Mostly an encouraging place to work

    Cons

    - Lack of remote capabilities - Lack of promotions via title or compensation - Red tape

    Advice to Management

    For young professionals, there isn't a lot of opportunity to advance within the organization - from a title or compensation-based perspective. If you want to keep and foster young talent, give them opportunities to improve their professional lives.

    I worked at NYSE full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The NYSE over the past 5 years was a dynamic place to work with good perks and prestige. The executive team did their best to communicate and overall the employees were smart, motivated and fun to work with. While internal training and mentoring was not consistent it was a good place to learn about the corporate environment and allowed you to rub shoulders with some of the biggest companies in the world. The pay was moderate for financial services, but good compared to other industries.

    Cons

    The recent acquisition by ICE (fall 2013) pretty much was the end of the NYSE. It is now a shadow of its former self. ICE dismantled most of the company that was built over the last 10 years. The corporate power center moved to Atlanta and most NY management is gone. Current environment is grim.

    Advice to Management

    There is none left.

    I worked at NYSE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great brand and culture prior to ICE. In general a fun place to work on the technologies side. Compensation and experience is great.

    Cons

    Since ICE acquired everything has been downhill unfortunately. They've sold off many lines of business and at the moment, most people's jobs are in jeopardy of being cut. ICE has high profit margins and don't really care about work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Not much to say as upper management don't have a lot of control over all the current shakeups that have been occurring due to the ICE acquisition.


  9. Amazing place to work, going through lots of change post ICE merger.

    Pros

    Fast-paced environment, very interesting work, great people, lots of autonomy, like no other place in the world.

    Cons

    Unsettling employment situation due to aggressive expense savings and staff reductions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push for regulatory change and opportunities to build the business across asset classes.

    Pros

    Known brand recognition and dynamic environment.

    Cons

    Too much change as of late. There is a lack of direction and knowing whether your job is secure or not is unsettling.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with your employees. This is not needed at the Executive Level but at a Managerial level.

    I worked at NYSE full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The overall compliance work is of the "checklist" kind (easy, just follow the rules), with an illusion of freedom and importance. Compensation is OK; although, never will be at the high-end of the scale. The ratio $/t is enticing. The benefits are going by the wayside like everybody else. You get a good viewing perspective, as you can see all the parts and how markets and industry work; and that it all it is.

    Cons

    You are and always be out-gunned, out-budgeted, out-numbered and out-witted by the revenue side, the winners, the Industry and its contrivers. Always and just catching up with the bad guys and feeling frustrated. Not a nurturing place to learn and join in your life. Good Concepts but Bad Reality

    Advice to Management

    Needs improvement. Pledge the fifth.
