    Their idea of motivation is to use scare tactics

    Client Relationship Manager (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsDecent salary, easy commute, opportunity to experience different roles

    ConsScare tactics used by management, not a lot of motivation or training provided, seen many people fired on the spot even after reaching their targets, acquire companies, but dont know how to integrate them successfully

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Unfufilling

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsExcellent industy networking opportunities are at your fingertips.

    ConsIf they could run the company with 10 people they would. Automation over relationships is the mantra.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPeople matter. In the end it is they that are responsible for growth. Automation does not bring in business on its own.

    Poor Management, Information sharing etc

    Analyst (Current Employee)
    Rockville, MD

    ProsGood brand to have on a resume, good benefits, colleagues are nice, decent pay depending on which department you work in.

    ConsNo guidance from upper management, lack of information sharing, rewards and promotions aren't given fairly, lack of internal mobility, lack of resources. NASDAQ OMX likes to spread themselves too thin in order to reduce expenses, no training programs at all. NASDAQ OMX rewards people based on how much money they bring to the company regardless of their effort, and they overlook the people that actually do all the work behind the scenes.

    Advice to Senior Managementlook at the resources you have and don't take on too many projects at once, more recognition for the employees that work hard.

    Colleagues were great; senior management was the pits!

    Relationship Manager (Former Employee)
    Menlo Park, CA

    ProsExcellent group of colleagues to work with. As a Relationship Manager I had the ability to network with Senior Leadership at the companies I supported. Very satisfying from that standpoint.

    ConsSenior management in the Corporate Client Group is dysfunctional at best. A lot of back-stabbing and half-truths. Up was down and down was up. You get the picture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote the good people else all you'll end up with are the rats. Your assets (or some of them, anyway) walk out of the building every day. Treat them better or they'll continue to leave.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Need a stronger senior management team.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBig company with global appearance. Strong competitor in the industry.
    Strong products with steady portion of market shares.
    Good benefit package.

    ConsSenior management lacks of leading skills especially in the technical department . Too much overhead costs. The merge with OMX did not go well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReorganize the product line. Trimming the overhead cost, especially the senior management and VP level management. Emphasize the client-oriented business model.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    it's a nice place to launch a career in finance but you'll have to move on for 'real' success

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsNasdaq OMX has quite a bit of dedicated, bright and interesting employees. Morale is pretty good even through trying times for the financial sector. If you're good at what you do, job security is almost guaranteed.

    ConsFormer management was far more cerebral. The company seems to be more interesting in acquiring companies than perfecting its existing organization. Managers don't seem particularly dedicated or concerned about developing talent or career mobility for better employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart to invest more in the employees. Ensure that there is more consistency across departments in the ways that workers are treated, evaluated and compensated.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
