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

Pros

Great co workers try to make it a fun place to work. The pay is pretty decent. Relatively flexible hours when needed.

Cons

Systems used are outdated. Went backwards with ticketing systems which are managed in Sweden. Because of this outdated system, simple tasks are made monstrous which is counterproductive. Sometimes isn't worth the pay.

Advice to Management

Listen to your people. Don't do all the talking nor assume you know what's going on. Slow down and listen. PLEASE.

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

    Pros

    Pay is fair. If you like being paid the same salary forever.

    Cons

    No structure. No strategy. Completely reactive. Political. Backstabbing. Nepotism (a whole LOT of nepotism). No investment in brand. No money to spend on anything. No career advancement. I myself have literally not had a manager for 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Business is more than the stock price. Invest in people and quality products and your numbers will match, eventually.

    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?
