    I worked at NASDAQ OMX Group full-time for more than 5 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    I joined as an Intern. They have started a great internship program of 10 weeks. I got good exposure to the company, leadership and its different businesses. There was brown bag sessions of how the stock market works and all. As I was in technology, it was really helpful for me to learn about different verticals.

    Cons

    Sometimes you find yourself passing time as an intern. Everyone is too busy. You really need to approach different people and ask for work. If you have the guts to go and ask people to give you work, your experience might just be great. but it differs from person to person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be more documentation so that when a new guy joins, you don't have to spend hours with him.
