I have been working at Nasdaq full-time

Pros

Good company name on resume, use it to get out and find a better company to work for, decent health insurance

Cons

Poor leadership at all levels, over last few years have consistenly piled on more and more work to the little people. Should be hiring due to more and more work coming in,new contracts being won, instead they are laying people off. They are suppose to be a market for technology and their technology is horrid, look at the day of the Facebook IPO and those issues, that was the tip of the iceberg. Regular workers are fed up and just trying to hang on until they can find something better. The GCS division is incredibly low-staffed, if clients only knew their jaws would drop.

Advice to Management

When business is way up in certain areas, and staff are feeling incredibly over-worked, don't ask them to do more with less and lay people off, hire. Take a pay cut like the rest of us
