    I worked at NYSE (Less than a year)

    Pros

    NYSE was an amazing place to work. The group that I worked in as led by a person who had great vision, cared about his people, and built world class organizations. You can't beat walking on the NYSE floor, all the history and nostalgia just captures you from the moment you enter. A fun place to work.

    Cons

    No cons to speak of.

    Advice to Management

    I did not work for the new management post acquisition so no advice to give.

    Pros

    The sense of cultural history and camaraderie among floor personnel was a compelling reason to come to work each day. Visits from listed companies were also an enjoyable aspect of the job.

    Cons

    Senior management seemed at times to relish the sense of fundamental insecurity that prevailed among employees. The future of the trading floor has long seemed to be up in the air, and rather than simply making a decision and communicating it openly and honestly, senior management often seemed to enjoy leveraging the uncertainty.
