    I worked at NYSE (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great executive management who really drive change Great people across the board Equity awards Good mix of technologies

    Cons

    Highly regulated so a lot compliance focus Most of the IT jobs are moving to Atlanta after the ICE takeover Equity locks you in after a few years Lack of investment in staff, no special clubs, rotational programs, mentorships, sponsorships or even a staff training/tuition reimbursement program

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your staff , it may cost more in the short run but will gain you much more in the long run in terms of employee retention.

    Pros

    Leading edge deployment and implementation of technologies and practices - experts in high availability and low latency networks and tradeing

    Cons

    Political, old boys network - many many years of downsizing which took a huge toll on moral and performance. Many mergers over the years diluted the initial team

    Advice to Management

    The management and ownership has completly changed since I was there so I can not accurately comment on what does or doesn't need to be done

    Pros

    At times, it is a very collegial work environment.

    Cons

    Too many layers of management. Lack of incentive structure for employees to make improvements and help grow the business. Employees operate under a survival mentality - keeping to themselves and anticipating that is is only a matter of time before they are fired.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the multiple layers of bureaucracy. Focus on attracting young talent and creating a better incentive structure
