    I worked at Chicago Board Options Exchange full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is still great potential of company growth if the CBOE can promote itself for traders and investors. As long as equity volume doesn't drop dramatically, the CBOE should continue to grow.

    Cons

    There is too much focus on monthly exchange trading volume. There is not enough focus on trying to educate conservative investors about basic option strategies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep trying hard to educate basic investors about options
