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

    Pros

    Diverse exposure to companies and executives across numerous industries and sectors. The NYSE takes care of people first and business thrives as a result.

    Cons

    The culture has changed slightly in the months since being acquired by IntercontinentalExchange. The management is not quite as approachable with more of a hierarchy. Previous leadership held quarterly town hall meetings. These are no longer common practice. However, in time this seems to be gradually improving as the two different methods of management begin to coalesce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be as transparent as possible in order for the employees to feel a vested part of the organization and more apt to give unconditionally.

    I worked at NYSE

    Pros

    Working under the old management, with Duncan Neiderauer as CEO, was great. Wonderful communication, open door policy with the CEO, great moral.

    Cons

    New management doesn't care about it's employees. They don't care to know you, or to hear about your situation. It's safe to say the majority of the current NYSE/ICE employees will be gone by year end. Horrible to see such a historical place crumble under new management.

    Pros

    NYSE has an abundance of smart, hard working people as well as great credibility globally.

    Cons

    Like most large organizations, it takes significant time and effort to enact change.

    I have been working at NYSE full-time (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.

    I have been working at NYSE

    Pros

    Worker bees are generally smart, fun, good people.
    Events can be fun.
    Free coffee, tea, cocoa.
    401k matching
    Good healthcare plans
    Weekly on-site masseuse
    Growth industry

    Cons

    Very sales-heavy organization with an emphasis on selling. Selling to NYSE, selling to ICE, selling to other mergers and acquisitions.
    Very little commitment to investing in internal infrastructure, instead relying on a remote, top-heavy organization to manage vendors and what skeleton crew remains in the office.
    Generally unhappy clients, which encourages finger pointing and infighting.
    Working with parent company NYSE inhibits and slows every process down. Lots of red tape and hair pulling for every little request.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop defining the organization by advice from the outside and look within at what your own employees are saying.
