    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

    Good company that evolves to meet customer needs and offers a broad spectrum of market data services. The company is well respected in the financial industry and known for the quality of it's service and people. New ownership is forward looking and leveraging existing platforms across the various silos. This has led to upgraded client offerings within in different divisions. Smart and efficient.

    Cons

    Sr management has changed several times over the past 6 years. 4 different CEOs. Sr. Sales Management changed 3 times. Each time new management had to ensure clients that spend 100,000's into the millions, that their mission critical data that they spent time and money to integrate will not suffer a loss in quality, coverage or reliability. This also takes away from time to manage the relationship and grow the accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Representation consistency is the key to managing client relationships. The relationship managers need time to build trust and rapport with their accounts. Given the size and scale of the relationships that trust can take more that a year to develop. Over the past 5 years there has been too much reassignment of accounts and critical loss of client intelligence.

    Pros

    The people are great to work with and management strives to keep their employees well trained and informed on industry trends.

    Cons

    With the recent acquisition there has been restructuring and as a result, some layoffs. There is a lot more being asked of the current employees due to this fact.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully the recent cuts have not been too close to the bone. The result of this may be that too much work has been heaved onto too few shoulders.

    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.
