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

    Pros

    Collaborative environment that offers opportunities to grow in the company. As a financial intermediary, you frequently gain exposure to customers that interact with Nasdaq. Leadership relies on everyone to deliver results and listens when you have value-add intelligence/ideas.

    Cons

    Many of the business lines are in the mature stage of development and are no longer growing. Organic growth is difficult and as a result you are seeing consolidation within the exchange space.

    Advice to Management

    Hire talented people that can help grow the business via new ideas and efficiency. Get rid of the employees who are not driven that drag the organization down.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, one of the better 401(k) plans I have seen. Plenty of vacation and personal time every year. very friendly people, understanding management

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity for growth. Many positions have recently been outsourced overseas. Thin coverage in some departments leads to overworked employees at busy times during the year.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, I would say they are doing a good job in general. I would like to see jobs staying in the United states, but I understand the reasons of sending some positions to India and other countries.

    I worked at Nasdaq full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Corporate pride. Compensation. Fast-paced environment. The technology is leading edge. Saying you work for Nasdaq typically is impressive to friends, colleagues and prospective employers. If you enjoy technology and working under pressure for high rewards, Nasdaq is a good place for you.

    Cons

    Depending on the unit, a lot of micro management takes place. Not much empowerment. Current management has surrounded themselves with mostly "Yes" men and women. You are told all ideas are welcome and people are free to speak up, but saying something negative can put you in the penalty box for a long time.

    Advice to Management

    You pay middle management and senior managers a lot of money. They have a lot of knowledge and expertise. You should listen to them.
