    Pros

    Nice people, many long tenures and generous with telecommuting and work schedule flexibility. Good benefits and salary is probably on par.

    Cons

    Very little chance for advancement especially for mid-level employees. This is due, in part, to the ever changing employee level goals and targets. When it seems in reach, it get farther away. Hard to get things done across business lines.

    Advice to Management

    Give clear direction to employees on paths to advancement. Encourage business lines to work together to support corporate goals.

    Pros

    There are some really good people here and it's a great brand in the industry

    Cons

    I was stuck working under someone who lacked vision, saw every challenge as confrontation to be avoided, and overlayed simple decisions with unnecessary bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Be wary of the power of some of the institutionalized employees to stifle change.

    The typical corp-machine that has the resources to be great but sub-par middle management that keeps them mediocre.

    Pros

    Strong positioning in many spaces of market-sectors they encompass. Respectable resources and asset base for improvements both internal and external

    Cons

    Short-sighted vision of dreadful middle management and a propensity to under utilize individuals talent or provide strongly defined career paths for people to grow. Very easy to remain stagnant in a career there.

    Pros

    Benefits were great, profit sharing, bonuses and decent pay, 3 weeks vacation to start. Colleagues were great... flexible environment.

    Cons

    No room for advancement, They rather hire contractors for lower development jobs then within. Still working on old code base ColdFusion, buying products they knowing nothing about or how it was developed. Trying to build an in house product with no clear direction. Soon as you start to get some, they purchase another company and everything stops and changes. There is are to much upper management that is just bloat. There is far to much red tape to do anything here.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to know what real development is. Configuring a website is not real code development. Hire more from within and not just throwing contractors at it. Hire some Managers with Real Software product experience and things could change drastically...

    Pros

    NASDAQ is a well known brand, but when you peel back the onion there are some major dysfunctions at the management level.

    Cons

    Very lean organization. Work/life balance is better in some departments vs others

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent, communicate more with staff, and put more emphasis on valuing all employees and not just senior management. Without out the people who make the vision happen, the company is nothing...

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay. Bonus w/ stock vested. Best in it's industry, stable company.

    Cons

    All about numbers and revenue. Not a lot of morale boost. Small budgets for every team means no fun. Just work hard and look good and their happy. Maybe you'll get a thank you email.

    Advice to Management

    Boost company morale. Simplify positions and not add extra work onto roles. Allow more money making opportunities for everyone, not just sales and big wigs. Share the wealth.
