I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group

Pros

The name carries a lot of weight in the financial industry. NASDAQ is the largest and most advanced electronic trading system in the entire world. Mostly everything is written in Java.

Cons

Its in the cutthroat financial industry. The hours are horrible, and you are pretty much always at work and on call for every position. You have a home office, soho, and blackberry that are required to be accessible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to do a better job of helping the workers mesh with each other. There needs to be some serious team building exercises.

    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.

    Colleagues were great; senior management was the pits!

    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.
