    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.

    Pros

    Very dynamic company, great will to innovate products, very known and good brand, people on the ground knowledgable, and great teams.

    Cons

    Top to bottom communication must be improved. salary is said to be over average salary of comparable jobs, however this can be doubted. Also, at Nasdaq you have a great job, however in smaller offices no career.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication, avoid actions and business decisions that are too short strategy.
