    I have been working at NASDAQ full-time

    Pros

    There is direct exposure to executive management. A company that promotes from within and allows hungry employees to grow and thrive quickly. Great work life balance.

    Cons

    Not all employees are top quality and there are often bottlenecks with individuals who are unresponsive due to lack of interest.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support and promote hungry talented employees.

    I have been working at NASDAQ full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - life/work balance - exceptional benefits - diverse career opportunities - dedication to the employees - career advancement through training / library - great locations - well known and trusted, high-profile brand - forward-thinking management - ability to work from home (depending on your position, of course)

    Cons

    - the on-boarding process can be a little cumbersome - only getting market holidays means losing out on some state holidays - there are a lot of amazing benefits, but navigating the setup and management of them is confusing and needs a bit of HR hand-holding

    Advice to Management

    - streamline on-boarding process - improve HR turnaround - more than one week's worth of sick time is essential for people who have families - have more dedication to streamlining and keeping updated all documentation on benefits and various systems you need to interact with on a regular basis (time-tracking, payroll, expenses, etc.) - have a single place to login to to track work hours and leave time

    Thank you for the feedback regarding on-boarding and tracking. We continue to strive for ease of system use and optimal work practices.

    I have been working at NASDAQ full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunities to pursue interesting technologies/ideas Great benefits Very interesting work with the capacity to specialise in any particular area that interests you Always more to learn, you should never get bored

    Cons

    Work day is 9 hours and isn't terribly convenient for me, so I don't get to spend as much time at home as I'd like. Weekend Work/On Call Rotation, but you find this everywhere and On Call isn't so bad. Long list of responsibilities for better or worse

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to earn work from home days maybe one every other week. Working at the office is generally a formality and not a necessity.

    I have been working at NASDAQ as an intern

    Pros

    They're really concerned with making sure you have everything you need to get your job done and concerned with making sure you get to do something you find meaningful. Some people even work from home, they're pretty nice to employees.

    Cons

    It's a big company by my standards, there's of course some annoying things about working at a big company. And it's getting more broad by the day for better or for worse.

    Advice to Management

    I don't think I'm quite ready to give advice. I guess I would say making our goals as a company a little clearer would be cool and stick to core competencies. I'm not sure some of these periphery technologies are necessary to us.

    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.
