    Excellent people, team culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNasdaq has some fantastic dedicated people working hard and sincerely. It's a very team oriented culture and people tend to pull their weight. Yes, there is plenty of politics, but that is corporate life. Still, it's a great company working prominently on the world stage.

    ConsUnder-market compensation and slow forward career path. The company is also too lean and certain groups are stretched too thin.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
