    Pros

    Dynamic high tech global company with excellent opportunities for development, in a highly competitive environment. International business experience and travel was an excellent learning experience.

    Cons

    Purchased by Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) at the end of 2015 has led to multiple position eliminations and unpredictable job stability. The amount overtime work is prohibitive.

    Advice to Management

    Consolidation of roles and responsibilities of Interactive Data and ICE staff has not yet been achieved and departments have not yet meshed together. More frequent and more substantive commication from executive management would be appreciated.

    Pros

    Decent benefits I suppose but not very much else. Great people in the team and great hours, however, neither outweight the cons.

    Cons

    Pay is much, much lower than market value. Managemt cut costs at any and every chance they had. They've let go of very talented people and there is zero trust from the employees anymore.

    Advice to Management

    not sure management has a chance to turn things around with hands tied

    Pros

    Great people to work with. You can expect to learn new tools/technologies based on your job requirement.
    Don't know how the situation is handled by the new management.

    Cons

    No growth plan for any position. Management looks down on junior level employees. Work Life balance is horrible, to say the least.
    This company is only for the new employees when they have no demands. Once they grow into skilled professionals, they no longer stay back because they know that their future is not bright with this company.

    Advice to Management

    Please reward top performing employees and have visibility on all employees. Promotions and Bonus potentials should be directly managed by HR and not the direct manager. What if he/she did not perform at all during the year. Promote employees into higher positions because you were also once junior employees. Salaries are below market rates.

    Pros

    Paid vacation time.
    Hopefully new owners ICE will fix the many things that need fixing.

    Cons

    Not enough employees and always the excuse not in the budget even when down people, rest of people have to make up work and place looks like walking dead.
    No direction from management and upper management turns blind eye despite numerous complaints and people leaving without jobs lined up.
    Poor management style, not people oriented and at times hostile in some depts.. Again HR and upper management turns blind eye despite numerous complaints.
    Building systems but not following through on fixing them , rather forging ahead with new ones while others languish. Could be good but not if fixed -again lack of people due to company being cheap.
    Too much work for amount of people in various departments, long hours, no time to eat lunch, no raises or even words of praise in years.

    Advice to Management

    Ante up some money to get help : more employees to do job properly as well as sink some money into the systems-fixing first and then developing from there
     Build on success and perfect first rather than force more bad unfinished systems to "look good and innovative" to try to sell to new customers.
    Make environment and culture a proud and good place to work again - make people WANT to work there and even enjoy what they do as well as like and respect the people they work for. Create management that gives direction as well as listens and acts when appropriate with good employee suggestions.
    Make employees want to come to work again.

    Pros

    None other than free time because of lack of leadership.

    Cons

    Management brought in by PE firms have no appreciation for the history of the company or for the people.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to gouging companies vs trying to run them
