    Former Employee - Intern in New York, NY

    I worked at NASDAQ OMX Group as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    People were very nice and always willing to help with understanding of topic at hand. The work was very interesting.

    Cons

    I sometimes had to ask for work to do. Very tight-knit company - everybody has their own role to do.

    I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group full-time

    Pros

    There is a lot of change within the organization - through acquisitions and internal growth, so it's always interesting

    Cons

    The constant change can wear you down at times and like most companies now, there is constant pressure to keep headcount low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For proper growth, sometimes it's good to invest in infrastructure

    I worked at NASDAQ OMX Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fast paced, sharp colleagues. Mission-critical work and visibility in the industry. Worldwide leader and great strategic charter from CEO.

    Cons

    Politics, fear of CEO from most managers. IT group did not face suitable and justified accountability after the Facebook fiasco.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Examine if the sr managers you hire can take a very top-down organization. If not, don't hire them, because this is one company the CEO runs the show and his word/fingerprints are on everything.

    Pros

    If you like a fast paced, flexible and exciting environment you will enjoy working here. Working at Nasdaq is certainly a different and rewarding experience.

    Cons

    You need to be tuned into every group and need to know what is going on as the information sharing is difficult to come by. Not much training to keep your technical skills alive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on building stronger teams, be more proactive in providing training and abilities for employees to enhance their skills. Employees are the most important assets this company has!

    I worked at NASDAQ OMX Group

    Pros

    In general, I'd consider nasdaq omx to be a good place to work. I felt that emnployees were treated well and compensated very fairly based on their contribution. It is a company that is constantly looking for new ways to generate revenue, and it provides far more services to its clients than you would normall associate with a stock market. Because of this, I feel that there is opportunity to make an impact by helping create new business.

    Cons

    At the time I was working there, NASDAQ seemed to be overly concerned with acquisitions, which seemed to distract the company from its core mission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.

    I worked at NASDAQ OMX Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits were great, profit sharing, bonuses and decent pay, 3 weeks vacation to start. Colleagues were great... flexible environment.

    Cons

    No room for advancement, They rather hire contractors for lower development jobs then within. Still working on old code base ColdFusion, buying products they knowing nothing about or how it was developed. Trying to build an in house product with no clear direction. Soon as you start to get some, they purchase another company and everything stops and changes. There is are to much upper management that is just bloat. There is far to much red tape to do anything here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to know what real development is. Configuring a website is not real code development. Hire more from within and not just throwing contractors at it. Hire some Managers with Real Software product experience and things could change drastically...
