Product Development (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAAugust 25, 2016
Compensation and Benefits are good but work/life balance needs serious improvement.

Very fast-pace environment and lots of backstabbing going on. Everybody trying hard to make themselves look good by making the other team member look bad.

Trade Operations Analyst/ Market Operator (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJanuary 7, 2015
Minimum 9 hour workdays, overnight shifts, have to eat lunch at your desk every day. I learned a lot about the futures trading industry and the inter-workings of the business itself. The management staff was always helpful but often did not appreciate all that was done by the lower analysts.
Pros
Nice management staff, good benefits
Cons
Lunch at your desk, night shifts, promotions take a minimum of 2 years

Very secure employment but runs too lean.
Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Atlanta GaApril 9, 2013
Very secure employment but runs too lean. The deadlines were tough. However, most departments are not micro-managed and you are free to meet the deadlines with little oversight.

The worst part of my employment at ICE was dealing the the employees who had been at ICE since it was a start-up. They were extremely territorial and, in my opinion, under-qualified for their current positions.
Pros
good pay and job security.
Cons
understaffed.

developer lead for suite of apps. (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GASeptember 18, 2013
Lots of interesting work but comes with a lot of support. Its a financial exchange so after hours and weekend support keeps you occupied.

Good compensation.

Culture is all about getting the work done. Not much otherwise.

Data Center Technician (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 24, 2015
My typical night at work is the clean up aspect of working overnights. Whatever is not complete from 2nd shift gets turned over to me to complete by shifts end. I like the fact that there is no stress working 3rd shift because nobody is there to interrupt so many tasks are completed quickly. I've learned a lot about patching and infrastructure because often times I have to perform cable tracing and inventory of the cable runs. The hardest part of the job is working nights. The people are the most enjoyable part of the job.
Pros
Great work atmosphere, Always busy and challenged
Cons
I work overnights
