    I worked at Nasdaq full-time

    Pros

    Leaderships honors and encourages entrepreneurialism, both within and outside your specific role. Strong sense of mission and significant efforts made to communicate across the company's locations and business units. Strong leadership in place with a genuine interest in employee retention.

    Cons

    Limited work/life balance, very intense place to work. Highly siloed and hierarchical structure which can lead to inefficiencies and frustration. Budgets are always tight, need to fight for funding which while frustrating leads to very purposeful spending.

    Advice to Management

    Difficult to save your way to growth, success in projects and initiatives is limited by resources/funding which can lead to unrealized potential. Keep focus on employee communication, has been effective in improving the internal culture.
