    I have been working at CME Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Have been associated with CME Group in Bangalore since Jan 2016. All I can say with my experience is - This is one of the best place to work for with great work culture, great work environment, great opportunities. Management is all ears to your suggestions, ideas, and, innovation is the key! Provides great work mobility, and, I am one of the employees who got benefitted by the Mobility Program. Though my core skills are Production Support, I was trusted and provided an opportunity outside of Production Support, and, with great transition mechanism, I was able to absorb the work and the new opportunity with open hands with such a great support from the Senior Management. Have always recommended this work place to my people and also have been benefitted by the Impressive Referral Program... !! Will continue to refer this to my folks !!

    Cons

    I haven't experienced anything to add for Cons yet !!

    Advice to Management

    Great going, and, highly engaged management, and, always open with the "Open Door" policy !

    Too many priorities must fight to get resources and support.

    Find a way to focus and put trust further in the hands of the leaders. Decentralize IT.

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

    Pros

    CMEGroup creates and adopts new technology to solve problems heretofore unseen in our industry without the risk of a startup.

    Cons

    Heavy regulatory burden by the Federal government - this does not impact new technology rollouts as much as maintenance of existing systems.

    Advice to Management

    Silo minimization has been successful but needs more work.

    I worked at CME Group full-time

    Pros

    - Good Pay
    - Great Benefits
    - Great Work Schedule
    - Good Work Experience

    Cons

    - Bad Management
    - Employees Are Told They Are Expendable
    - No Longevity In The Company
    - Other People Take Credit For Your Work
    - Constantly Feeling Like You Will Lose Your Job
    - Employees Let Go Every 5 Years No Matter Performance

    Advice to Management

    Don't act like you care about your employees, when they are literally told they are expendable in meetings, and then wonder why people don't see any future in the company. Employees are constantly let go, even if they do a great job, just to appease the bottom line. Not a great company to feel comfortable in.
