I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great co workers try to make it a fun place to work. The pay is pretty decent. Relatively flexible hours when needed.

Cons

Systems used are outdated. Went backwards with ticketing systems which are managed in Sweden. Because of this outdated system, simple tasks are made monstrous which is counterproductive. Sometimes isn't worth the pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your people. Don't do all the talking nor assume you know what's going on. Slow down and listen. PLEASE.

    I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay is fair. If you like being paid the same salary forever.

    Cons

    No structure. No strategy. Completely reactive. Political. Backstabbing. Nepotism (a whole LOT of nepotism). No investment in brand. No money to spend on anything. No career advancement. I myself have literally not had a manager for 3 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Business is more than the stock price. Invest in people and quality products and your numbers will match, eventually.

    I worked at NASDAQ OMX Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fast paced, sharp colleagues. Mission-critical work and visibility in the industry. Worldwide leader and great strategic charter from CEO.

    Cons

    Politics, fear of CEO from most managers. IT group did not face suitable and justified accountability after the Facebook fiasco.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Examine if the sr managers you hire can take a very top-down organization. If not, don't hire them, because this is one company the CEO runs the show and his word/fingerprints are on everything.
