    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.

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

    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.
