    I have been working at Nasdaq full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are sufficient and well rounded; there is also a tenure system, diversity of job roles is generally good as it is a diverse exchange/tech company, stock price is managed very well and employees get equity share

    Cons

    There is a systemic lack of growth as Nasdaq is still in the acquisition phase so there are a glut of mid-upper management and not enough workers so the trend is to decrease promotions rather than increase. There are also no real internal growth intentions except NFX (futures) which is highly underfunded and not yet profitable.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure. I think you just have to wait out this season and look for more internal growth abilities. Probably make better decisions in the M&A department (e.g. eSpeed).

    I have been working at Nasdaq full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flat organizational structure with lots of responsibility. If you're an entrepreneur there are plenty of opportunities to take the bull by the horns and make of it what you will. Anyone expecting opportunities on a silver platter however need not apply.

    Cons

    Compensation is misaligned. There are rather severe dislocations in salary across the division as well as with subordinates making more than some managers despite less experience, track record, or responsibility. Sad.

    Advice to Management

    Correct the inequities between talent. There was a recent claim from the CEO that progression and promotion is based on merit. Maybe that is the case going forward, but that does not fix the existing dislocations.

    Pros

    Decent pay, great benefits, culture is decent-to-not-so-great. Really depends on which department/division you are in, as well as your reporting line.

    Cons

    Shifting priorities at division senior management level. Manipulation of bonus goals during the year. Few professional growth or development opportunities if you are not in a major hub office.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more tactical clarity to middle management and line employees. Once the bonus goals are set, keep them locked for the duration of the year OR communicate the changes immediately to all affected employees. Have a plan for growth for key team members.

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

    Pros

    The management in the Chicago office works so hard to support their teams through a very difficult acquisition. People in the office are what make the organization. They are hardworking and friendly.

    Cons

    Everyone is spread too thin. Their processes are not streamlined and it takes the focus away from selling. Industry is dying and the market is oversaturated. They need to understand what their competitors are doing and get ahead of the game. Marketing, marketing, marketing. The upper management is very out of touch with the day to day problems.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the day to day issues and fix it. It should be the number priority. This will shift the focus back to selling!
