      Pros

      The benefits are good if you stay.

      Cons

      CME Group is run by a bunch of narcissistic people who abuse their power and treat their subordinates like garbage . One person in particular comes to mind -Sean Tully. He must have been bullied in the past and now abuses his power and speaks to his coworkers and reports in a very demeaning way, going off on insane rants which I can only assume make him feel better and more powerful, all while making 3-4 million a year. I don’t know how this man still has a job in such a high position but it seems like he gets away with it because everyone is afraid to lose their job if they disagree with him.

      Pros

      Market Leader in their space, Great management team and co-workers, with a "flat org" rather than hierarchical feel.

      Cons

      Some legacy, technical knowledge is not well documented, but instead needs to be extracted from longer term employees.
