    Pros

    Flat organizational structure with lots of responsibility. If you're an entrepreneur there are plenty of opportunities to take the bull by the horns and make of it what you will. Anyone expecting opportunities on a silver platter however need not apply.

    Cons

    Compensation is misaligned. There are rather severe dislocations in salary across the division as well as with subordinates making more than some managers despite less experience, track record, or responsibility. Sad.

    Advice to Management

    Correct the inequities between talent. There was a recent claim from the CEO that progression and promotion is based on merit. Maybe that is the case going forward, but that does not fix the existing dislocations.

    Pros

    Collaborative environment that offers opportunities to grow in the company. As a financial intermediary, you frequently gain exposure to customers that interact with Nasdaq. Leadership relies on everyone to deliver results and listens when you have value-add intelligence/ideas.

    Cons

    Many of the business lines are in the mature stage of development and are no longer growing. Organic growth is difficult and as a result you are seeing consolidation within the exchange space.

    Advice to Management

    Hire talented people that can help grow the business via new ideas and efficiency. Get rid of the employees who are not driven that drag the organization down.

    Pros

    Great benefits, one of the better 401(k) plans I have seen. Plenty of vacation and personal time every year. very friendly people, understanding management

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity for growth. Many positions have recently been outsourced overseas. Thin coverage in some departments leads to overworked employees at busy times during the year.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, I would say they are doing a good job in general. I would like to see jobs staying in the United states, but I understand the reasons of sending some positions to India and other countries.
