      Great benefits. Very political. EXTREMELY POOR upward mobility.

      Jan 2, 2022 - Senior Associate

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Great health benefits - Decent pay - Very knowledgeable team who are very willing to share

      Cons

      - Bureaucratic. Very political and have that big boys club culture. - Senior management tend to turn a deaf ears on employee feedback. - If you are in your mid-career looking for growth, DO NOT JOIN. Upward mobility and promotion IS VERY POOR at CME. They don't tell you much on your career growth and how you can get promoted. They always say they try, but they don't. Many bright young people tend to look else where if they want to advance their career. - HR is very pointless and not helpful. - Lack of transparency (they say they are, but they are not) - Sudden layoffs can happen here

      Good benefits, but don't expect to feel inspired

      Feb 27, 2020 - Anonymous Employee

      Pros

      Good benefits and work-life balance

      Cons

      A lot of posturing. Not uncommon in large corporates but truly an affliction here. Disconnect between management stating they "understand" or "want to understand" staff concerns, and what they actually do to hear from the people on the ground. Management actually gets a lot right in the beginning - saying the right things, showing they're thinking of the correct avenues. But the execution and implementation is often extremely poor / insipid / half-hearted.

      good platform but toxic culture

      Pros

      - great exposure to interesting work that meaningfully impact financial markets - good benefits package - frequent opportunity to travel

      Cons

      - not a meritocracy at all, management (especially in the BLM groups) ignores performance review to fire or stall high performers to advance their own political agenda, - old Chicago boy's club of back scratching permeates the business globally - backstabbing and making HR reports to sabotage fellow colleagues are a way of life inside the CME front line departments
