    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.
