    Pros

    It's a great learning environment and dedicated people. Excellent exposure to high profile individuals and issues confronting Wall Street. It is an outstanding brand and it is great to be tackling issues fundamental to the the economy. Good equity participation opportunities.

    Cons

    Competitive forces created many rounds of layoff/reduction-in-force. It can lead to depressed morale and a lot of work for those left over. Nature of the business lends itself to a lot of competition from ECNs. Lots of pressure and long hours. There are high expectations and sometimes not as high appreciation for delivery.

    Advice to Management

    Clearer expectations about how to make a difference to the bottom line. While communication of overall strategy was good, it would have been better to know how to make a difference to those solve problems in the 'ivory tower'.

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

    Pros

    I joined as an Intern. They have started a great internship program of 10 weeks. I got good exposure to the company, leadership and its different businesses. There was brown bag sessions of how the stock market works and all. As I was in technology, it was really helpful for me to learn about different verticals.

    Cons

    Sometimes you find yourself passing time as an intern. Everyone is too busy. You really need to approach different people and ask for work. If you have the guts to go and ask people to give you work, your experience might just be great. but it differs from person to person.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more documentation so that when a new guy joins, you don't have to spend hours with him.
