    Pros

    Good location, if you live north of 128. Made some good friends who have been working there for a long time.

    Cons

    Was never a great company to begin with. Most people blame the horrible ICE acquisition, I only feel it made matters worse. Managers/ directors tried to be Frank Underwood from House of Cards (and not in a cool way). Very hard not to lose motivation. Colleagues were good people personally but this work environment brought out their worst! Avoid this company at all costs unless you happen to live in the area and are too proud to collect unemployment.

    Advice to Management

    Shed the suits, shed the act. Who are you kidding.

    Pros

    1. Nice potential to grow once integrated with ICE
    2. Challenging work environment
    3. Go getter attitude of employees
    4. Good medical and 401k plan
    5. Generous vacation policy, though it's changing now

    Cons

    Integration hiccups related to title, banding etc.
    Company is set to save money which can effect employees
    Workplace is not at all fancy with very small kitchens and almost negligible free food

    Advice to Management

    Take care of employees. They are the ones driving and retaining customers.

    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

    Some great people to work with, with great benefits, which unfortunately will change with the new acquisition by Intercontinental Exchange.

    Cons

    Management needs to get a clue and not be all about money. People are important as well and decisions need to be made better.

    Advice to Management

    Live the values you speak of, not just give employees speeches about how important they are and then not do the things you promise.
