    Pros

    Very smart staff. Several business units give lower level employees the opportunity to move to new positions and roles

    Cons

    Some of the businesses can be silo-like. While staff is pretty motivated, morale at times can be low due to press and market events

    Advice to Management

    continue to promote from within. the review process needs to be improved to better match modern companies. provide more opportunities to move locations within organization

    Pros

    There is direct exposure to executive management. A company that promotes from within and allows hungry employees to grow and thrive quickly. Great work life balance.

    Cons

    Not all employees are top quality and there are often bottlenecks with individuals who are unresponsive due to lack of interest.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support and promote hungry talented employees.

    I have been working at NASDAQ full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Job Security, Name Recognition, Good hours (at least in my role), Good Bonuses and Benefits

    Cons

    Upper Management make changes often without ever looking at efficiency of their employees. Little to no raises, poor management in general, no boost to employee morale. Work-horse mentality. Little to no job growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a little money on making your employees happy. Take us out, give us more freedom, maybe a big raise here and there. Treat us the way the people who bring you revenue should be treated.

    I have been working at NASDAQ full-time

    Pros

    Large, global company with many departments and divisions. Located in major cities. Large spectrum of jobs, from tech, non-tech, and financial, to administrative. Well-known brand.

    Cons

    Large company, slow to change. My department is poorly managed. We lack the big picture and strategy. It's not very collaborative, and there is a lot of politics between teams in my division.

    Advice to Management

    Minimize micro-managing. We know what we are doing, and we should be trusted for that. Use your time to better provide the big picture or strategy to push the business forward.


  9. Overall good company

    I have been working at NASDAQ full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment and constant desire to expand into new products.

    Cons

    Separating departments on the same platform creates competition instead of collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are spread too thin with expectations set too high.

    I have been working at NASDAQ full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - life/work balance - exceptional benefits - diverse career opportunities - dedication to the employees - career advancement through training / library - great locations - well known and trusted, high-profile brand - forward-thinking management - ability to work from home (depending on your position, of course)

    Cons

    - the on-boarding process can be a little cumbersome - only getting market holidays means losing out on some state holidays - there are a lot of amazing benefits, but navigating the setup and management of them is confusing and needs a bit of HR hand-holding

    Advice to Management

    - streamline on-boarding process - improve HR turnaround - more than one week's worth of sick time is essential for people who have families - have more dedication to streamlining and keeping updated all documentation on benefits and various systems you need to interact with on a regular basis (time-tracking, payroll, expenses, etc.) - have a single place to login to to track work hours and leave time

    NASDAQ Response

    Jul 17, 2015 – VP Global Talent Management

    Thank you for the feedback regarding on-boarding and tracking. We continue to strive for ease of system use and optimal work practices.
