  1. Overall good company

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

    Pros

    Great work environment and constant desire to expand into new products.

    Cons

    Separating departments on the same platform creates competition instead of collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are spread too thin with expectations set too high.

    Pros

    Great management and colleagues, great and real projects as an intern, adequate salary, international environment, inspiring lectures and overall very educational while still being a part of something real, some benefits are very nice like the Nasdaq shuttle bus.

    Cons

    The office space is OK but it wouldn't hurt with some improvement as it's situated a bit "off", some IT platfrom restrictions are just ridiccolous and makes certain tasks taking a lot more time, a greater trust in the ingenuity, ideas and the willing to explore other solutions would benefit the progress of the intern's project.

    Advice to Management

    Lift some Windows UAC restrictions as it harms day to day operations. Allow interns to explore other solutions and place a bit more trust in them when it comes to the IT environment.

    Pros

    Nasdaq is a very exciting place. If you like a challenge and a dynamic work culture, this company is the right place for you. The internship program is a great opportunity to work with senior executives and to perform value-added contributions. The structure is very well built and you are given a lot of responsibility as an intern to not only show your skills and abilities, but to learn throughout the process.

    Cons

    The Boston HQ is more laid back than NYC, which is not necessarily a negative aspect, but the age demographic is a bit older and many employees keep to themselves. They come in, do their work, and then leave once the day is over.

    Pros

    The team in Lakewood is excellent, high-calibre folks for the most part. Very good engineers, great atmosphere.

    Cons

    The management in NY kinda sucks. Teams aren't grouped according to a task they are grouped according to specialty, which cause problems trying to get things done across the different teams.

    Advice to Management

    Empower the lakewood office as much as you can, and continue to move more things there.

    Pros

    Great team members, always willing to teach new things and help with projects and tasks. Management is very helpful and kind, never degrading.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot. The only thing I would change is that I would like to be a full time employee rather than a contractor so I could collect benefits. contractors do not get benefits

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. I enjoy how they stay engaged in employees activities and offer words of praise and encouragement.

    Pros

    Every day is a new day. It is dynamic and energetic place to work. Employees have the opportunity to take on a lot of responsibility and be rewarded well for it. Being part of a transformation is exciting.

    Cons

    Micromanagement at times. You need to take your punches and move on.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent and continue collaborating.

    Pros

    Relaxed, flexible and usually informal environment that encourages individual input and self motivation. Daily activities vary greatly, offering variety and challenge. Regular client interaction on a global level makes the company feel grounded in the real world.

    Cons

    Large organisation which unfortunately brings a fair degree of bureaucracy with it. Training opportunities tend to be limited. Pay is industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    Greater access to training of employees would be beneficial to all. More allowance for R&D activities would help to get fresh IT ideas into the current products, as some of these are somewhat dated.

    Pros

    I thoroughly enjoyed interning for NASDAQ. A major positive was that there was always something for me to do (and it wasn't administrative work). My boss was very intelligent and wanted me to get the most out of the experience. I would recommend interning here to anyone interested in the field.

    Cons

    You don't interact with anyone beyond your direct supervisor

    Pros

    They have invested a lot of money in next gen service offerings, waiting to see how it all turns out. They pay well, no quota, opportunities for bonuses, cool people.

    Cons

    Very chaotic place to work. Many internal requirements in order to keep reports accurate.

    Advice to Management

    Rome wasn't built in a day.
