No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Excellent work/life balance. Fantastic salaries - definitely within market range. Continually evolving technology - we are definitely using the latest/best practices, tools and techniques. Great location within the city, perfect for commuting.

Cons

--- Outsourcing key development positions
--- Trimming stateside head count in dramatic numbers
--- No room for advancement
--- Overall direction is no longer clear
--- Sadly, we are no longer encourging talented people to stay. High turn over ratio within the company
--- No management training - they are moving individuals into management positions that they are completely unqualified for but they are not providing them with the skills [advanced training] to succeed. This driving talented people out of the company to escape bad management. When a stateside employee exits, we replace them with off shores consultants.

Advice to Management

Please take a fresh look at your management team. Your leaders are no longer fostering a cohesive/collective vision. We no longer seem to be developing to market demands or working to stay competitive within the market place.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    -Resume builder
    -Benefits (tuition reimbursement, decent insurance)

    Cons

    -Very poor pay relative to similar jobs in industry
    -Very poor treatment (lack of respect, lack of encouragement, lack of promotion)

    Advice to Management

    Treat the people who are actually doing all the real work better and learn how to manage people. Abuse and disrespect don't encourage people to work harder... Also, just because you have a big name, it doesn't mean that you should pay half the going compensation rate.
