    Pros

    Great visionary CEO, good people

    Cons

    Not enough headcount, ridiculous timelines on projects, laughable accounting. Forget being able to put quality work into anything, you won’t have time. Little thought put behind decisions. Managers are poorly trained and to overworked to actually run efficient teams. Compensation is not even close to worth it considering you are doing the job of 5. Office environment is overall sad and depressing.

    Advice to Management

    Realize the people are what make Nasdaq great and invest in them. Consider investing more in technology to improve processes. Take a hard look at compensation considering the low headcount.

    Intense politics. Maniacal focus on cost and margin mean strategic projects and operational readiness suffer to the point of failure.

    Give up some margin to invest in plant.
