    I have been working at NYSE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation Package, 401k. The people I work with are pretty amazing.

    Cons

    Technologies are old and deadlines are overwhelming at times. Work from home is very rare, only when you need to work the extra hours. Your happiness in this place pretty much depends on what department/team you join.

    I worked at NYSE full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    At the center of the economic activity; but not the Economy. Certainly feeling every pulse of it.

    Cons

    Although, by far, not the Regular company it did have a captive business and was unable to adapt to monumental disruptions in regulation, technology, markets, economy, terrorist attacks, products, and globalization.

    Advice to Management

    Under new management; although, many don't know it. New management is ruthless; but, savvy.
