Well, what can I say. Really quite bad.

I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group full-time

Pros

Good benefits including 6% 401(k) match, but no public transportation stipend. Decent hours, but they are inflexible. Office is in the Financial District and the commute is easy.

Cons

Base salary is too low for San Francisco. The Thomson Reuters acquisition process was a complete disaster...trying to integrate a larger team into a smaller one in the way they tried just didn't work. Trying to integrate the legacy TR and NASDAQ products together isn't working either. Clients are very unhappy and are canceling left and right to go to competitors. Five sales people have left in the past month alone to get off of the sinking ship. Communication between sales and service is so disjointed that management thinks using Excel spreadsheets is the way to go. There are processes in place just for the sake of having a process.

This company is probably great for you if you are looking to plod along in the same position for 5+ years. Other employees aren't driven and are content with 'stability' over growth. Do not come here if you prefer working in a start-up environment because, contrary to what NASDAQ might tell you, they are not an 'aspiring technology company' and cannot possibly compete with smaller, more nimble competitors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your employees better. Stop cutting costs at literally every corner and start treating us like it's your employees that make the company. And stop making life for clients difficult just because you can.

    I worked at NASDAQ OMX Group as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    People were very nice and always willing to help with understanding of topic at hand. The work was very interesting.

    Cons

    I sometimes had to ask for work to do. Very tight-knit company - everybody has their own role to do.
