    Pros

    Great colleagues, medical benefits, personal time off, 401K, decent office space and the company offered
    free breakfast/lunch once a month.

    Cons

    When IDC was sold to ICE at the end of 2015, a number of lay offs followed: every quarter in 2016 through 2017. Salaries are below market, lack of upward mobility, antiquated systems, and nepotism.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent!

    Pros

    I worked for the eSignal division of Interactive Data in Hayward, CA. Years ago, when the company was public, it was a good place to work with new products being developed and plans to expand, but once they were bought by an investment group, then sold to the ICE exchange, they no longer fit into the long term plans of the parent company and staff has been reduced severely.

    Cons

    Now, they are just keeping the employees around until the division is no longer profitable. No plans to grow the division or develop any new products. They already laid off one department.

    Advice to Management

    Not much you can do while the parent company shows no interest in growing the business. The only solution I can think of is to find some way to become an independent company, but I don't know who would finance that.

    Solid place to get your feet wet in the interactive market data arena. The technology is ahead of the curve.

    Cons

    The company has gone through so many hanged throughout the overall culture lacks a true identity, the lack of clear leadership has this place in a tailspin.

    Listen to the employees and make the simple changes that present themselves constantly.

    Pros

    The people
    Good exposure to the industry

    Cons

    Disorganized, moral at all-time low.
    Will expect you to put in the work of many while paying well below market value.
    Cut vacation days / healthcare benefits less than ideal since being acquired by ICE. Longer workday for less pay. No regard for employees, micromanaging a big problem.
    Lacks tools, resources, perspective and compassion. Will always lowball your annual reviews. All divisions lack communication skills. Many new hires do not receive the training in which they need in order to succeed in their role, leaving others to pick up the slack with little to no recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the needs and concerns of your employees. Instead of buying another company, perhaps spend that money on tools, training and resources on those which you've already acquired. Develop a work hard / play hard atmosphere. Show some appreciation and cut the fat that exists within middle management.
