Systems Analyst (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 21, 2016
A typical day of work starts and ends with a meeting that inform staff what went wrong during the day. Staff will then print out their proper documents to bringing up their assigned trading systems. Throughout the night employees also handles troubleshooting from both inside and outside the company.
Fun work environment where accountability is the motto
Intern (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 11, 2015
As an intern at the Chicago Board Options Exchange I attended classes on the stock market with other interns and worked in groups with them to put on presentations about what we'd learned from those classes. I also sat in on several board meetings with my supervisor who took me under his wing and taught me the basics of the financial industry.

The Options Exchange is a great place to work if you like fast pace,and exciting atmosphere! Most people are trading with their own money so it is amazing to watch what happens when people are under extreme pressure!
I learned alot about how people act under pressure!!
