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

    Pros

    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.
    Good benefits, and lots of opportunities to grow your career.
    Employees truly follow the company mantra of Lead Exceed Thrive!

    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.
