Asset Management Intern (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 18, 2017
CME Group was a great place to work and learn. As an intern, CME helped my IT skills grow tremendously. All my co workers were very knowledgable and always willing to pass that knowledge down to better the company as a whole.
Lead Investigator/Specialist (Current Employee) – New York, NY – July 9, 2017
Typically I worked as a manager overseeing investigations and enjoyed working with the analysts I oversaw. I also worked with various institutions whose traders conducted business with the Mercantile Exchange as well as the COMEX.
The reports I was in charge of completing involved taking depositions which were often led to disciplinary action. I enjoyed testifying and running depositions. I also settled the crude and oil markets daily.
I would have liked to stay at CME GROUP, however, the job was eliminated.
Manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 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.
PC Support Technician (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 7, 2017
Working at CME proved to be a great start in my career as a Helpdesk Technician. with the huge amount of users that needed to be supported, I learned to work quickly and efficiently. Work policies helped keep the work environment productive and communication with our users easy.
Desktop Support (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 19, 2017
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.
Great team members who support group growth, excellent compensation packages
Fun place to work but don't expect promotions unless someone quits above you.
Senior Market Reporter & Settlement Analyst (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 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.
Short hours, don't bring work home with you, fun environment, good benefits
Low salary, lack of ability to move up within the company
