    I worked at Nasdaq full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Impressive brand to work for because there is a lot of recognition and respect. Fast paced environment keeps it exciting. Great benefits for working parents including paid maternity/paternity, generous time off and sick days. Pay is generally good depending on role. Business formal culture with a strong foundation in ethics. A formal suite and tie environment.

    Cons

    Career advancement is tough especially if you not in one of the larger offices (NYC) or are remote. Fast paced environment while exciting can also wear you down quickly. The business changes constantly with multiple re-orgs. It's a competitive environment, not very inclusive. In general, working from home is looked down upon unless you are in sales and don't live near a major office.

    Advice to Management

    I'd like to see Nasdaq invest more in their employees through career advancement tracks and promoting from within. I observed many people promoted into management positions only to see them fired or demoted because they weren't given the proper resources to succeed. More work life flexibility with remote options would be great.

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

    Pros

    The company really cares about what you want to do in your professional career. I'm a finance major that is not an intern in the finance department, but my manager has set up meetings for me with finance people and the amazing HR team set up a intern call with the CFO. The people are genuine in helping you advance in your career, even if its not Nasdaq. Honestly its a great place to work for and the HR team put together a great group of interns this summer and it'll be amazing to see Nasdaq grow as a company.

    Cons

    The limited resources that teams have, but they do try to put the best product out there given their resources.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone was amazing and the HR team made sure to let interns know that full-time opportunities were there. I would say to give the HR team a bigger budget because they are the ones that will help guide and hire the next Nasdaq workforce and its something that's very important in today's market, that you have the best people working for you.
