    I have been working at Nasdaq full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - The brand name is very well known and definitely brings great pride when you see the impact the company has on the global markets and on other iconic brands -Culture is evolving from lots of work/no fun to a family like environment where the top bosses are accessible, warm and receptive (this is the most refreshing aspect of working in this low-ego Fin-Tech environment). People are great! And if someone acts out their...

    Lean environment that can feel stressful at the beginning but the amount of autonomy you have to do the right thing allows you to truly grow as a professional

    Advice to Management

    For some leaders- Please spend some more quality time with all levels of the organization - they hear ‘Nasdaq family’ and expect that warmth from you too (not just the CEO, HR and Marketing saying so)..:) will be great for you as leaders! Do what you do for your own family- remember to recognize, celebrate small and big wins, know what’s important to your ‘people’ and help them achieve their goals ! We look up to...

    I have been working at Nasdaq full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Strong innovative culture - diversity and inclusion - its own rock band - outdoor activities for employees - great benefits.

    Cons

    Highly regulated so being innovative and changing the old ways is extremely challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on thinking outside of the box and shaping up managers who have been at Nasdaq for a long time - they need to adapt to the new generations and be flexible when it comes to changes.

      Nice coworkers // Company is moving to midtown

      Cons

      1) If you work in the LEGAL/COMPLIANCE area - you will not see any monies because the mgmt there does not believe in hiring or paying...You will be working the jobs of 3 people because NASDAQ is painfully CHEAP in hiring enough workers. 2) Upper management are complete EMPTY suits - they have no understanding or appreciation for the level of detail and the amount or effort that is entailed in the daily duties - they...

      Advice to Management

      The CEO should give up half her comp for the lack of creativity she has brought to the table ... IF the only growth you can give is thru employee layoffs - then toss in the towel! If you are not going to hire = then pay your people ... If you are not going to pay your people - then why are you concerned about turnover ... Stop wasting employees' time with HR meetings about retention!

        I worked at Nasdaq full-time

        Pros

        Great on resume. Opportunities to work on great projects. Wonderful colleagues.

        Cons

        Nasdaq won’t give you opportunities - you have to force them. I watched all of my peers exist everyday in a world of stress, unfulfilled, completely miserable in their jobs with no opportunity of upward mobility. The culture that Nasdaq hopes to create and the culture they preach is not the culture that exists. Management does not have your back and they do NOT promote from within.

        Advice to Management

        Practice what you preach.

        Pros

        Love the location, love the people, the company is very transparent with respects to relying information.

        Cons

        Not much of a con, but you definitely have to be a self-starter. Not much training or transition from one position to the next.
