    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Intercontinental Exchange full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Being a member of Interactive Data before its two purchases to become part of ICE I believe that the Positive is that it is a company with a single focus on being the best and biggest. With that comes the annual bonuses which were good.

    Cons

    ICE is a highly charged stop for no one company and targets set at very high level appraisals become mountains for the underlings below. Coming from the FT Interactivedata days to the ICE days I saw how staff went from being valued people to dispensable commodities. Contracts have only one constant and that is your name, everything else is written in such a way or interpreted to get that last pound of flesh from you. I saw a share scheme introduced and sold as a compromise for extended hours taken away the next year. We had to follow a 3 year glide path to reach parity with other staff after being purchased and therefore robbed of parity in bonus rewards.

    I worked at Intercontinental Exchange full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    1) quick office equipment setup at the start; 2) quite an up-to-date tech stack;

    Cons

    1) poor HQ planning leads to constant weekend work; 2) poor HQ communication (on their "late afternoon" decisions) leads to time wasting on fixing or useless tasks; 3) London seems to be a dumping ground for all the "cleanup" tasks.
