This company does not treat people well. I know an employee who worked there six years and they overnighted her personal items to her house.

Blatant bias in the HR department . Upper management has no shame with the FAVORITISM.

Payroll Department. HIGH TURNOVER
Payroll Administrator (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAAugust 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.
Pros
Office supplies
Cons
BLatant favoritism and discrimination- No telecommuting

New company takeover
Operation Research Analyst (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 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.
Pros
free coffee, snacks and juices
Cons
vacation days cutbacks

Executive Assistant to General Counsel (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 25, 2018
I loved working at the NSYE/ICE. It was a fun place to work with great benefits and awesome co-workers. The culture was diverse and everyone worked well together (at least in my department).
Pros
great co-workers, free coffee and snacks daily, full cafeteria

ICE is an emerging financial giant. With that said the work is very fast paced and stressful. This company has a high employee turnover and there is no work life balance.

Good place to work, they need to revisit priorities.
Senior IT Engineer (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAApril 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.
Pros
Great culture, Real impact, Top of the line people
Cons
Bureaucracy, No WFH

Get out while you can
Manager (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMarch 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.
Pros
Good starting pay
Cons
No work life balance, long hours, big brother treatment of employees

No job advancement, poor management, no life outside of work
Data Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 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.
Pros
Dope holiday party twice a year
Cons
Poor management, no advancement, low pay

Remote working not supported. Competitive pay and benefits. High pressure at times.
Project Manager, ICE Data Services (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILFebruary 1, 2018
Company promotes traditional work environment - no work from home, 8 to 5 work day, etc.
You will have the opportunity to really learn many aspects of the financial trading/clearing/direct market access business.
Management styles vary considerably from team to team.
Benefits (health, dental, vision, PTO, etc.) are typical for the industry and comparable to other technology firms.
Pros
Worked with a lot of really good people. Free snacks and coffee.
Cons
Inflexible working environment. High stress at times.
