Negative Outlook

I worked at Nasdaq full-time

Pros

-Very sharp group of people from top to bottom
-Not a bank or a startup...somewhere in the middle
-Allow career growth for exceptional employees
-Work in assets that are new and interesting
-Lot of exposure to different business models and technologies

Cons

-Company is no longer a cash cow
-Very slow to develop the online tools
-Management isn't experienced in running a mid-sized company
-A lot of the best folks left when the company began to decline
-Skill set isn't easily transferable within the finance community
-Comp isn't what it used to be
-Lack of overall direction confuses employees

Advice to Management

I think they'll figure something out eventually but they need to nail down a direction for the company. Are you a broker or a software developer?

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Nasdaq full-time (More than a 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 Management

    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.
