    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.

    Pros

    The people are amazing, and depending on which department you're in the leadership can be as well. It all depends on who your manager is. I had a good one, and a very good director which made the team and culture better.

    Cons

    The new ownership is in the process of making changes where the end result is not clear, and people are fearing for their jobs. People in many areas are now overworked and underappreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your teams, and when you are given the opportunity, let new ownership know the value of the existing employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

    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
