    Pros

    Been working at Nasdaq for 6 years. The experience varies a lot across offices, but employees in general are convivial, like working together and have a positive outlook on life. Executive Management used to be apparently indifferent to the needs of employees, but the level of respect and helpfulness has steadily grown. I feel proud to work for Nasdaq. The company uses macs and PCs, and use both iphones and adroids for mobile. It doesn't ever feel like we're working in the stone age.

    Cons

    The vast majority of business lines require responsible stewards, not inventors or disruptors. However there are pockets of innovation here and there that a lucky few get to enjoy. That innovation, unfortunately, is often stifled by red tape and endless appraisals of "profitability", even for nascent products that have not come to market. It is the downside of a very conservative company, although this also means that the stock price does pretty well.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in new projects and research, and less in lawyers and corporate finance.

    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 Management

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

    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

    Relatively flat organization.
    Good learning experience.
    Friendly and talented people.
    A Lot of own responsibility and no micromanagement from managers.

    Cons

    The thing I find the most annoying is that the best people isn't rewarded enough for their great work. Salary is not great (Nordic Office).

    Advice to Management

    More incentives to the best employees. More internal training.
