    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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