    I have been working at Intercontinental Exchange full-time (Less than a year)


    I love working alongside smart people - like in tennis, I like to 'play up' to better my own game. EVERYONE here is smart - we work very hard, and we are lean. But there are no slackers, and you can be assured that the guy sitting next to you can teach you something you didn't know, no matter what your experience. We get employee discounts on stock purchases (free money), have free health care, and have a company-subsidized full-scale restaurant on site. Oh yeah, a yoga studio with multiple FREE instructor-led classes every day.


    Not a place to be if you aren't willing to work hard!

    Advice to Management

    Keep the purity of mission at the forefront. It's working.
