    I have been working at Nasdaq as an intern

    Pros

    - very little bureaucracy
    - exciting projects for you to work on
    - you're close to project leads so they can write you a very personal recommendation

    Cons

    - no housing/food/transportation stipend
    - not similar to a modern work environment you can find in the Bay Area
    - no personal days allotted

    Advice to Management

    Put more money into the internship program if you expect to compete for talented interns. Orientation came across to many interns as being stingy.
