    I worked at Nasdaq full-time

    Pros

    -Big brand name to get doors open
    -Work with C-Level Execs at Fortune 500 companies is awesome! Loved that experience.
    -Great benefits and retirement package. They have a great 401k match and ESPP program.

    Cons

    The world has changed and NASDAQ is slowing trying to catch up. They just implemented Salesforce and got rid of Oracle Siebel.

    -Sales Managers in Austin were a joke. One got fired and the other one doesn't know how millennials work.

    -Sales team is expected to do all lead gen. Terrible marketing support that Sales Manager.

    -The NASDAQ brand only goes so far. You need more proof on why clients work with you and marketing support.

    Advice to Management

    -Ask current sales teams how they like working for their Sales Managers.

    -Implement 2017 sales tools.

    -Culture, culture, culture. Cut internal red tape, make it easier to close deals not harder. It's harder to close a deal internally than it is externally.

    -Allow redlines on contracts where acceptable.

    I worked at Nasdaq full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nasdaq is the ideal workplace to park yourself if you've hit your mid-40s and are tired of it all, and want to work at your own pace. Your managers will not push you because they are in the same mode - drifting towards their own sunset. Nobody will try to rock the boat or push the envelope as everyone tries to secure their next (last) 10 years.

    It's a mostly harmonious and laissez-faire environment for the ones that seek it. The benefits are very good - why else would you join a country club?

    Cons

    If you are used to picking up the ball, and running as fast as you can; then, this is not the workplace for you. The pace of execution is excruciatingly slow.

    Upward mobility is extremely static as managers hold on to their jobs with iron grips. Rarely are people promoted, demoted, or fired.

    The average age in the company qualifies it for a old-age home.

    Through my tenure, I couldn't help but think that I was always working with the B-team. As they say, if you pay peanuts, you will get monkeys.

    Pros

    Great people to be around.

    Cons

    Work isn't fulfilling. Like most jobs (perhaps more so) you'll find yourself greatly looking forward to Friday.

    Advice to Management

    Find some way to liven up the place; make work less of a drag. Take advice from these new tech startups that make work a fun place to be.

    Pros

    Very limited training, almost none, including initial when just hired. It seems like management is not very much interested in investing in their employees to help them achieve growth and bring more value to the company. I hope it will change with the new CEO. Also, some managers are are lacking leadership skills making it work environment unproductive and unpleasant. Little or bad communication between different teams within the company (which is basically connected with bad management).

    Cons

    Lots of very nice smart people working there. Unfortunately, a lot of them leave because they do not grow professionally over time. Great Nasdaq stock purchase plan option.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees, invest in their grow and they will return more to the company, train managers to be leaders but not just check collectors.

    Pros

    Nasdaq has great benefits. Amazing work life balance.

    Cons

    Women get away with murder at this company. it is basically reverse sexism. Management is not smart and team leaders shouldn't be team leaders. Not a lot of opportunities to move within company.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe look down the ladder a little bit you will find people 10X smarter than the people in charge.
