    I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I joined as an Intern. They have started a great internship program of 10 weeks. I got good exposure to the company, leadership and its different businesses. There was brown bag sessions of how the stock market works and all. As I was in technology, it was really helpful for me to learn about different verticals.

    Cons

    Sometimes you find yourself passing time as an intern. Everyone is too busy. You really need to approach different people and ask for work. If you have the guts to go and ask people to give you work, your experience might just be great. but it differs from person to person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be more documentation so that when a new guy joins, you don't have to spend hours with him.

    I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    it paid well ($21/hr; i am a college junior). people were extremely keen on introducing me to different areas of the business and teaching me what they do. i was exposed to all sides of the nasdaq enterprise (back office and front). if you ask, people will give you opportunities to take on more work. the culture of the company is good. i love their office building, One libery plaza, - there is a huge glass window spanning 2 floors which has an atrium for employees to gather/hang out/have coffee or lunch. the view is all of manhattan(from the fidi facing north). People are intense about their work. this intership i was asked to do more than i had done in previous internships.

    Cons

    the intership program is in its infancy, but its already good

    Pros

    The Swedish working culture is friendly and creates an open athmosphere - you can ask anyonne about anything and always get a friendly welcome.

    Cons

    The organization is hierarchical which makes it less flexible and the process of taking decisions may take longer than average.

    - Many of the world's largest and well known companies are customers

    - NASDAQ name has huge brand recognition

    Cons
