    I have been working at Chicago Board Options Exchange full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great location and easily accessible via the CTA.

    Cons

    non-stop gossiping! The management is the worst I've ever seen. Even though it's a pubic company it's more like high school. There are some high quality people that work here but most people are so unprofessional that they would not be able to work anywhere else. The technology is a joke. If you want to work in this industry then try and get a job at the CME. You will not learn anything of value and the skills you do learn won't get you a job elsewhere. Don't expect a career here. The exchange won't be around 8 years from now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of life long managers who add no value to the company whatsoever.
