    I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group full-time

    Pros

    Nasdaq has some fantastic dedicated people working hard and sincerely. It's a very team oriented culture and people tend to pull their weight. Yes, there is plenty of politics, but that is corporate life. Still, it's a great company working prominently on the world stage.

    Cons

    Under-market compensation and slow forward career path. The company is also too lean and certain groups are stretched too thin.

    Pros

    Great colleagues, learn a lot, good salary

    Cons

    Some of senior management are not that bright; others are excellent. It really depends on your manager, who can make your life hell while there.

    CEO has cut back so much that it is affecting trading platform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the cutbacks; treat your employees better. Do not rule by fear.

    Pros

    Good total rewards and pay for performance package. Good team members.

    Cons

    Career growth could be limited. But things will hopefully move in the right direction. Sometimes long stressful hours. Less vacation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management does not understand how lower level works really hard. They should plan things well.
