Pros

The organization is relatively flat. Management can give a lot of freedom to employees.

Cons

Staff experience tends to be low and there are lots of infrastructure problems because people aren't clear on what they are trying to achieve. Competent people will probably find themselves over worked, but in the Nasdaq team these people also might have an advantage to rise quickly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in quality and reward quality work.

    Pros

    Excellent group of colleagues to work with. As a Relationship Manager I had the ability to network with Senior Leadership at the companies I supported. Very satisfying from that standpoint.

    Cons

    Senior management in the Corporate Client Group is dysfunctional at best. A lot of back-stabbing and half-truths. Up was down and down was up. You get the picture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote the good people else all you'll end up with are the rats. Your assets (or some of them, anyway) walk out of the building every day. Treat them better or they'll continue to leave.

    I worked at NASDAQ OMX Group

    Pros

    It's a great learning environment and dedicated people. Excellent exposure to high profile individuals and issues confronting Wall Street. It is an outstanding brand and it is great to be tackling issues fundamental to the the economy. Good equity participation opportunities.

    Cons

    Competitive forces created many rounds of layoff/reduction-in-force. It can lead to depressed morale and a lot of work for those left over. Nature of the business lends itself to a lot of competition from ECNs. Lots of pressure and long hours. There are high expectations and sometimes not as high appreciation for delivery.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clearer expectations about how to make a difference to the bottom line. While communication of overall strategy was good, it would have been better to know how to make a difference to those solve problems in the 'ivory tower'.
