I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

It depends on which floor or department you're with, you can wear jeans and sneakers to work.

Cons

Your boss may not know what you're doing so you may not be appreciated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some jobs need to be done by more than two persons for controlling purpose. Having only one person works on certain things may help to save cost but will risk running into errors.

    Pros

    The NYC office is doing interesting development in Linux, pay and options can be pretty good if you happen to be one of the favored folks.

    Cons

    Many developers are on call 24*365 even when on vacation, long days, weekend presence often mandatory. The open plan offices in NYC and CT are noisy and non-developers are often on the phone, meetings take place all over. Tough place to concentrate, but many can work from home.
    Regular "downsizing".

    I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group

    Pros

    - Fast changing business -- can be quite exciting
    - Expanding globally into new business lines
    - Generally strong management team
    - Leverages new technology (though some is ancient)
    - Many of the world's largest and well known companies are customers
    - Generally good communications from management
    - Small enough that you get to know much of the company
    - NASDAQ name has huge brand recognition

    Cons

    - Corporate bureaucracy - unusually high for a company of this size (<4K staff)
    - Too much going on - frequent strategic confusion among management
    - Not enough tech resources supporting most business units
    - Long work hours - but fun if you are up for the challenge
    - Disorganized budget planning processes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Focus on doing fewer things better
    - Improve marketing - bring back excitement of late-90s campaigns
    - Make additional investments in tech operations
