    I have been working at Nasdaq full-time

    Pros

    Successful company with smart Senior Leadership. Lots of potential (if you are given the chance) pay is decent and great health benefits. Hire good people. Solid successful company. Spends money wisely if not a bit too frugally.

    Cons

    Doesn't have the infrastructure in place to support their continued growth. Working on it but not there yet. Doggy dog "old school hierarchical culture ". Highly competitive-don't encourage team work there is a lot of "I" and not enough "we". Most of the. VP group ( EVP, AVP, SVP AND VP) always looking to point out each other's deficiencies or their departments perceived errors or mistakes. Runs too lean and proud of it. Everything in writing to cover themselves. Too much paperwork and back and forth to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    Come down from the ivory tower and get real. Put aside your competitiveness between departments. Allow the talented people you hire to do their jobs. Stop spinning our wheels. Also, have a less impersonal onboardimg process. Streamline processes for your shared services team., stop offshoring jobs, hire your contractors as employees. Give more time off.

    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).
