    I have been working at NYSE full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Employee pay and benefits can be good, assuming you can get transitioned over to one of the ICE teams that has a future. There are still many smart people in development and QA, and if you have a good idea, it is possible to drive to through to implementation.

    Cons

    The ICE acquisition has led to 50% staff cuts, in many cases people are being fired from NY or Chicago so they can be re-hired in Atlanta at less salary. They're loosing lots of financial experience, and expect to operate as normal. In addition, the Atlanta office is very secretive -- they will seldom call or email the "Branch" offices in NY and make bad decisions with their limited information. Dissenters who speak up are quickly fired.

    Advice to Management

    Stop screwing around with employees. Every day you turn one more screw to make things more difficult, and eventually people will leave.

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

    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.

    ice views on talent are shortsighted. the sharp elbowed culture that they have developed will lead to attrition.

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

    Pros

    People are mostly friendly and down to earth. Minimum politics.

    Be more clear on the future plans.

    Pros

    Great place to learn and do something worth while. However, the current culture forces you to learn on the job and work long hours. Great camaraderie but the place has become depressing as more and more employees are laid off due to the company moving its operations.

    Cons

    NYSE was purchased by smaller exchange and they are downsizing and moving work to remote sites. Job security for long time employees is bleak. Some may dislike the long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your employees and show you care
