    Pros

    you can make some good friends with colleagues because it's an "us against them" environment. Decent benefits and vesting if you can make it that long

    Cons

    Middle to upper management in for themselves only, will use you until you become any kind of threat to them. 90% of employees from 2015 are gone now, almost no one makes it more than three years there, very high pressure and expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house with mid to upper management so the actual workers can do a good job instead of CYA and worrying about being replaced

    Pros

    Strong brand to help open doors for new business discussions
    Great value prop around innovation, integration and intelligence
    Knowledgeable leadership and supportive management
    Good pay, good benefits

    Challenge to navigate internally with such a large company
    Multiple sales people contacting the same buyers can cause confusion/frustration
    Disconnected internal platforms cause inefficiencies with day-to-day work
    Hybrid role of hunter/farmer takes people away from what they do best

    Advice to Management

    Help us be more efficient and focused so we are better positioned to succeed.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Recognizable brand name. Some divisions have good salaries

    Cons

    Specific to corporate solutions, the best people are not rewarded. Managers don't all have management training, so if you are such with a bad one your life is miserable. There is no oversight. No 360 review of them. There was a culture, start from the top, of making fun of people who are different (probably why the lack of diversity in the workforce). Bob G, when he was there, in a company wide town hall made fun of books people had written as a segment of the town hall.

    I worked at Nasdaq full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great compensation and high quality devices, equipment and software. Generous annual bonus. Good people and solid teamwork environment.

    Cons

    Management was a mess. Many of the higher ups left or were asked to leave after an acquisition. I think I had 4 different managers in less than a year because of restructuring and team changes. I had one manager who had no idea what I did or how I did it. The best people to work with got smart and found other jobs, including me. Long work hours expected. No clear career path options. Lots of office politics.

    Advice to Management

    Figure it out and get some stability

    - Stay away from M&A deals that don't fit the strategy
