    I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Brand recognition, intense work environment, never a dull moment. Learn a lot on your own.

    Cons

    Poor management decision making, understaffed, cutting to the bone, overworked, no training. Cost cutters celebrated but the negative impact on quality will be noticed and likely blamed elsewhere. No training. Bottom line is king. The best and brightest not promoted. Favoritism rules. Across the board dissatisfaction and people trying to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out what's going on below you. Your decision making is so clouded by cost cutting that you are increasingly jeopardizing quality over low cost. Will have a real impact when the problems become so big it can't be ignored and clients will notice - p.s., they already have....

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

    Pros

    ESPP plan, Brand name, view from the building

    Cons

    This company does not believe in investing in its people. Their entire attitude towards their employees is to get the most out of them while giving them the least amount of training, growth opportunity, comp, respect or appreciation. CEO micromanages everything, down to the hiring of analyst level positions. Surrounded by yes men/women who can do nothing to help the staff. Constant fire drills and chaos in the work. Everything has to be done now, at the whim of senior management. Bottom line is everything, people mean nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to grow, you need to invest in your people and infrastructure. Constant cost cutting is not the the way to improve your product and ultimately your bottom line.
