    I worked at Chicago Board Options Exchange full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    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

    Cons

    No cons. You also take classes through the options institute which can be challenging at times but you learn a lot and earn a certificate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Chicago Board Options Exchange full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Need to provide more opportunities for promotion from within.

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

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

    Play music in bathroom to drown out noises.

    I worked at Chicago Board Options Exchange

    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.
