    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.

    I worked at Nasdaq full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits - 6% 401k match, and they have nice elements like paid time for volunteering (2 days each year), preventative care day, Corporate Incentive Program annual bonuses, long-term stock options, etc...

    Cons

    Nasdaq is a meeting obsessed culture - many individuals spend their entire 9+ hours in the office bouncing from one meeting to another, only to do their real work after hours. It's not uncommon to see people online well past 10 or 11pm and back online at 6 or 7am before making it into the office.

    Employees respond to emails on weekends, any hour of the night, on vacations, holidays, you name it. As a result, employees are getting burnt out but continue to force the pace because of recent lay-offs and restructurings.

    Ever since the West Corporation deal announcement, things have taken a turn for the worse. Management claims that the organization is "lean" but the reality is, one person ends up doing the work of 3 people.

    Advice to Management

    Actions speak louder than words - you need to care about your employee's mental, emotional, and physical healths. It's not sustainable for someone to work 24/7/365.
