    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.

    I worked at NYSE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Great compensation (base + cash bonus + equity award), especially for more recent hires
    * Conveniently-located, recently-updated, well-protected office in the historic building
    * Small gift handouts from listing companies

    Cons

    * Toxic company culture and values with much finger-pointing and brown-nosing
    * Stale technology stack with not much automation and slowly-moving SDLC
    * High level of technical debt and significant production support load
    * Poor work-life balance with absolutely no telecommuting

    Advice to Management

    First, make people your top priority by training your mid-level management and by relaxing some office policies like "no WFH".
    Second, invest into organic growth projects instead of relying on external acquisitions (to boost revenues) and cutting costs (to trim expenses).
    Finally, stop starving out Chicago and San Francisco offices.
