    You are teamed up with a department and are able to learn the ins and outs. The people at the CBOE are amazing and helpful. Great experience in the Financial Industry

    Pros

    Predictable hours aside from pager duty. If you are pursuing an evening higher educational degree, this is a great place to work. The culture respects employees and offers tuition reimbursement with some restrictions.

    Cons

    There are no opportunities to telecommute. You have to be at the office every day. Moreover, it does not offer many promising career growth paths.

    Advice to Management

    Need to provide more opportunities for promotion from within.

    Pros

    Great people work there. Everyone relaxed and chill. 40% foreign work staff.

    Cons

    No music in bathroom and can hear every noise made. Do not go to bathroom around lunch hours.

    Advice to Management

    Play music in bathroom to drown out noises.

    Pros

    A solid company with an inordinate number of friendly and competent people. For such a large organization, CBOE is able to keep all employees "rowing" the same way.

    Cons

    Very few downsides. Those few individuals who had their own agenda usually get weeded out.
