Director (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 13, 2019
Vicious culture and not supporting if you're not aligned with the right groups/functions. When it's good - it's very good but conversely - bad is very bad. Tech makes it interesting - culture drains you.

Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 13, 2018
It is rather difficult to get a promotion at CME especially from Manager to Director. It is a very bureaucratic place to spend a career and many people in the organization have literally spent their entire career knowing only this culture.

I learned many different systems throughout the years I spent at NYMEX/CME. I played a major role when the trading floor closed and all brokers/traders had to adjust to electronic trading.
