    I have been working at Cboe Global Markets full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A nearly limitless ability to take on responsibility and grow, learn new technologies, and make a difference. The team is very collaborative, happy to mentor, and I find everyone open to new ideas and constructive feedback. You can find yourself working on high impact projects very early on in your time at the company. I've been able to accomplish a lot in a relatively short time.

    Management creates an inviting culture of integrity. Open door policy makes it easy to share feedback. Free-flow of information means I'm always able to know what's going on around the company. Despite the importance of the work, mistakes aren't punished, but used as a chance to learn.

    Despite what another reviewer may have said, the company doesn't have a diversity problem. In fact, the company has a diverse set of employees in terms of gender, race, and age across technical and non-technical disciplines. Also, I'm openly atheist and it certainly hasn't affected my progression in the company.

    Cons

    Given that the company is in financial services, the work can be stressful in that mistakes can have a big impact.

    As the company has grown, we have more meetings than we used to, but I do feel like there is an effort to keep them tight and useful.

    Advice to Management

    No specific advice, the company is a fantastic place to work.

    Pros

    Moving past integration pain which can be challenging and seeing lots of positives for our future. In Chicago we have a cafe with baristas and s full snack and game lounge all for free. Recently had a nice happy hour on site that was nice. Company participated in community events which I like.

    Cons

    Chicago office is a bit dated but there is a plan in the works to get to same look and feel of our other offices in London, New York, and Kansas City.

    Advice to Management

    As you have been, keep working through final steps of integration with transparency.

    I worked at Cboe Global Markets full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Basically no pressure, benefit is good.

    Cons

    There is not much room for the employees who want to grow in the technical route.

    Advice to Management

    The loyalty is a two-way system. The CBOE-BATS merge ruined the careers of many IT people in CBOE.
