    Everyone is genuinely nice, without much politics. There is a lot to learn but colleagues are sincerely interested in helping new employees learn and succeed.

    Cons

    None . Please don't change the amazing culture!

    Advice to Management

    Please keep up the good work.

    It might be a good idea to improve more local branding about satellite offices like Philadelphia, as they can sometimes be overshadowed by the New York Wall Street association.

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

    Pros

    Very limited training, almost none, including initial when just hired. It seems like management is not very much interested in investing in their employees to help them achieve growth and bring more value to the company. I hope it will change with the new CEO. Also, some managers are are lacking leadership skills making it work environment unproductive and unpleasant. Little or bad communication between different teams within the company (which is basically connected with bad management).

    Cons

    Lots of very nice smart people working there. Unfortunately, a lot of them leave because they do not grow professionally over time. Great Nasdaq stock purchase plan option.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees, invest in their grow and they will return more to the company, train managers to be leaders but not just check collectors.

    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
