    I worked at CME Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Money, travel. There are no other real pluses. It's a difficult and political place to work. The list goes on and on.

    Cons

    Too many useless meetings
    Not enough decision making
    Back stabbing culture
    Constant layoffs
    Unqualified individuals in key positions
    Nepotism is rife
    America centric
    American staff fish out of water in foreign jurisdictions
    Interfering and unhelpful HR. They have their own agenda, protect the company and their jobs and don't help staff

    Advice to Management

    This company makes hundreds of millions a year in net profit and always will. It's a monopoly. Stop worrying about how you want to run the company. It runs itself if you just let people get on with their jobs and stop interfering.

    I have been working at CME Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The best part of CME is the welcoming culture and support for the learning process. If you are a 'learner', this is the best place for you in London!!

    Cons

    Nothing, really - just think if were a bit diverse it would have been better, still I would rate it 8/10 based on my experience

    Pros

    Nice office in london; there are some smart competent people; depends on what team you are in - if the team leader is good, it can be an enjoyable place to work

    Cons

    However, if you get a horrific manager, you life could be like a hell. Don't count on HR as they are clearly onesided in order to keep their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Change HR and introduce a fair work environment
