    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.

    I worked at NYSE as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly environment filled with motivated hard working people. Summer Fridays. Fellow colleagues were very willing to help with anything you might need & help you learn the business.

    Cons

    Majority of the people working there were Men. Unfortunately when I was an Intern they were not looking to continue the program due to being acquired.

    Advice to Management

    Reintroduce the Intern program for current college students to give them the opportunity to lean the business in a landmark setting.
