    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

    -Standard paid vacation is three weeks, you accrue more as you earn time with the company
    -Monthly pizza and bagel parties on the house
    -Competitive salary with other peers (Reuters, Bloomberg)
    -Recently acquired by Intercontinental Exchange potentially creating growth opportunities in larger company
    -Intelligent, friendly co-workers, generally low-stress environment. Work/life balance favors life

    Cons

    -Potential for layoffs as ICE makes reorgs based on the acquisition
    -Up until very recently, limited upward mobility. New ICE ownership may allow improvement here

    Advice to Management

    Provide training opportunities for employees and communicate these opportunities to them. Annual meetings should include "5 year plan" discussions for advancement.

    "Changing, Slowly"

    I have been working at Interactive Data full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people in my BU are dedicated, collaborative, and supportive of one another. That has not been so much the case at other BUs. As we are slowly being integrated into our not-so-new owner, ICE, the non-collaborative hold-outs are gradually being pushed back - or out. While the ICE environment is hardly perfect, it is a vast improvement over the prevailing Interactive Data culture. Full integration cannot happen fast enough to suit me.

    Cons

    As per above, the hold-outs continue to engage in a battle of wills (or "won'ts" as is typically the case) that they don't seem to realize that they cannot win. However, while they persist, the environment can be uncomfortable, and doing the right thing can be risky.

    Advice to Management

    Get the integration done. Seek out the obstacles and break them down. By delaying flushing out the bad resources, you risk alienation and loss of the good ones.
