      Positive Vector - the company is truly embracing the transition to a Technology Company.

      Pros

      The business model is scalable and the Nasdaq Platform is diversified. The leadership team is pragmatic but also willing to pursue a select set of growth oriented initiatives. The technology talent is very good and willing to mentor new employees.

      Cons

      It is a regulated business so it can be appropriately cautious and reserved. The core business runs critical infrastructure for the US and Europe. This raises the intensity of the job and puts a high premium on software quality.

      Pros

      Surprisingly tech-intensive company. Loved the people and the latest tech you get to work on! Many employees are ready to retire here, it is that close-knit.

      Cons

      None really. The Nasdaq brand is so strong that I got another offer I simply could not refuse! Else I might have never left!

      No room for growth unless you're a lawyer

      Mar 8, 2021 - Senior Regulatory Compliance Analyst in Rockville, MD
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Stocks, good insurance. Working remotely used to be an issue, but after covid we have all been able to work from home which has been great.

      Cons

      No room for growth. Base salary is horrible and no room for negotiation. I have worked here for years and my base salary increases only 1-2% each year. There isn't really any room for growth unless you're a lawyer. They seem to have tons of money to hire new lawyers, but not new staff to support the teams that are struggling.
