Contractor (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 24, 2018
Numbers driven with little room for process improvement. They tend to promote from within which is a good thing. Seems that the contractors are held more accountable for the work than the full-time employees.
IT Engineer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 9, 2018
A typical day at work included monitoring the ServiceNow queue and ensured tickets are claimed and completed in a timely manner. Working at ICE I learned a myriad network of security practices implemented in this organization. The culture is friendly and professional. The hardest part of the job was to deal with micromanagement. The most enjoyable part of the job was to work with the most recent technology in the IT industry.
Free snacks and the opportunity to work with the latest technology.

Research Analyst - CEP Reporting, Spreadsheets VBA (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 4, 2018
Overall a nice place to get up and come to work everyday. Good management with staff meetings and feedback allowing freedom to express creative ideas and problem solving issues. Nice atmosphere, friendly people. I enjoyed the fact that I was able work with minimal supervision and creative input.

Payroll Administrator (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 10, 2018
This is what I observed. Most of the Sr managers and directors exhibit blatant favoritism and discrimination , so if you're not in the favored group, you will be fired.
I worked in the payroll group, enjoyed the time working with someone from NY, the other person in payroll is a Heavy smoker and was not to friendly. The payroll manager was nice but sometimes she can be short.
The workload was not enough for the payroll team. Overall the company was okay. I did learned a lot from the person from NY and the manager. I now have my payroll certification.
BLatant favoritism and discrimination- No telecommuting
Analyst (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 25, 2018
I have been at Intercontinental Exchange for a long time and have seen numerous changes. A typical day at work is very busy and stressful.Lots of complex applications and interesting work Great benefits and stock plan Fast paced work environment and lots of learning opportunities.
Learned alot working at the company
It was had to find many a negatives except for communications, and maybe disseminating of data, ideas when interacting with other groups in a different time zones, however one is always able to resolve and miscommunications.
Operation Research Analyst (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 27, 2018
The company was in transition and workers were laid off including me, so I was not there long enough after the development to assess the changes of the new company. It is my opinion that management and the workplace culture changed which is expected with any company take over.
Good place to work, they need to revisit priorities.
Senior IT Engineer (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – April 4, 2018
I legitimately enjoy working for ICE. Without getting too into details, the bait-and-switch with the stock options getting removed this year was just not cool - especially considering the salary/bonus was not raised to match the loss.
Great culture, Real impact, Top of the line people
Manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 24, 2018
As the company has matured, the cost-cutting has become more aggressive. While one is unlikely to ever find an organization with a more talented workforce, it comes with many costs.
The constant threat of being fired, the recent elimination of stock grants so most employees took a massive pay cut, long hours, zero work-life balance, but aside from that you get free coffee and soda. Senior people are being cleared out for no reason other than to hire junior people at below market rates and undercut salaries.
It's a crucible, not for the faint of heart. The starting salary is attractive, but the longer one works there, the worse it is for the advancement of your career. Most of the managers exhibit blatant favoritism and discrimination in project assignments and thus promotions, so if you're not in the favored group, you have zero chance of advancement.
Good starting pay
No work life balance, long hours, big brother treatment of employees
Senior Gemstone Developer (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 13, 2018
Very rewarding and fast paced. A typical day at work would include scrum session, meetings with management, product managers, project managers, QA, other development teams, design sessions, code reviews and coding.
No job advancement, poor management, no life outside of work
Data Analyst (Current Employee) – New York, NY – February 20, 2018
Working for ICE is horrible. They constantly buy new companies and then consolidate, which ends up leading to a ton of layoffs. They offer no job advancement, just lateral movement within the company, which isn't very easy since most managers will try to stop you from leaving their team. Most managers and directors have no clue what they're doing and just have their employees do all the work for them and take all the credit. The company is poorly run and they don't compensate much, but expect you to work way more than youre paid to do. You also only start with 10 vacation days per year until youve veen with them for 5 years.
