Great Benefits, tough to advance
Manager (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILApril 10, 2017
Company pays fairly and has great benefits. Very difficult to advance unless you are part of the right group. It does not matter your previous experience and performance, very likely to find several
people in the company with less experience but higher seniority level.

CME Group was perhaps the best workplace I have personally experienced although I would say it is not for the faint of heart if you wish to excel and move up the ranks demonstrating the capcity to lead amongst leaders is at minimum a prerequisite.
Pros

Big Data Solution Developer, Data Mining Team (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILOctober 24, 2016
CME is a huge trading firm, from where I learnt a lot knowledge besides the technique ones. It seems like they outsource most of the software developement part, though.

COMMODITIES TRADER/BROKER (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 28, 2016
Extremely intense environment that becomes very addictive for some.

Hours could be long if one has clients in different parts of the world. But exciting at same time.

Learned about GID- Get It Done now or it will haunt you later.
Pros
The environment
Cons
Your on your own

Fun place to work but don't expect promotions unless someone quits above you.
Senior Market Reporter & Settlement Analyst (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 22, 2016
Overall fun, exciting place to work. I thoroughly enjoyed the environment and my coworkers; however management isn't exactly stellar. They were given their positions 20+ years ago, and even though they lack education and the capability to use basic programs, such as Microsoft Word, they remain in charge. Not sure if it's still in place, but I also received tuition reimbursement and was able to cover all schooling costs. There are definitely perks to working here.
Pros
Short hours, don't bring work home with you, fun environment, good benefits
Cons
Low salary, lack of ability to move up within the company

Accounts Receivable and cash management (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 25, 2016
Posted all cash to Accounts receivable invoices. Reconciled Accounts receivable aging reports. Managed an Accounts receivable project that interfaced revenue billing software with bank auto debit software, creating a zero variance factor between the software that in turn reduced auditing hours and increased efficiency. I learned how to manage a full cycle Accounts receivable department. Worked extremely well with middle and upper mangement personnel. Worked well with co-workers. Spreadsheet development was the hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job was producing error free reports on a monthly basis.
