From great to I'm not sure

Down to the earth working environment

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

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

ProsIt depends on which floor or department you're with, you can wear jeans and sneakers to work.

ConsYour boss may not know what you're doing so you may not be appreciated.

Advice to Senior ManagementSome jobs need to be done by more than two persons for controlling purpose. Having only one person works on certain things may help to save cost but will risk running into errors.

Enjoyed sw development, 24*365, lousy physical environment, lots of pressure, interesting problems.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Shelton, CT

I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group

ProsThe NYC office is doing interesting development in Linux, pay and options can be pretty good if you happen to be one of the favored folks.

ConsMany developers are on call 24*365 even when on vacation, long days, weekend presence often mandatory. The open plan offices in NYC and CT are noisy and non-developers are often on the phone, meetings take place all over. Tough place to concentrate, but many can work from home.
Regular "downsizing".

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

It's nice to say you work for NASDAQ OMX

Systems Analyst (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group

ProsThe 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.

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

For a subsidiary of Nasdaq

Project Manager II (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at NASDAQ OMX Group

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

ConsStaff 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 Senior ManagementInvest in quality and reward quality work.
