I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group

Pros

The name carries a lot of weight in the financial industry. NASDAQ is the largest and most advanced electronic trading system in the entire world. Mostly everything is written in Java.

Cons

Its in the cutthroat financial industry. The hours are horrible, and you are pretty much always at work and on call for every position. You have a home office, soho, and blackberry that are required to be accessible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to do a better job of helping the workers mesh with each other. There needs to be some serious team building exercises.

    Pros

    The organization is relatively flat. Management can give a lot of freedom to employees.

    Cons

    Staff experience tends to be low and there are lots of infrastructure problems because people aren't clear on what they are trying to achieve. Competent people will probably find themselves over worked, but in the Nasdaq team these people also might have an advantage to rise quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in quality and reward quality work.

    it's a nice place to launch a career in finance but you'll have to move on for 'real' success

    Pros

    Nasdaq OMX has quite a bit of dedicated, bright and interesting employees. Morale is pretty good even through trying times for the financial sector. If you're good at what you do, job security is almost guaranteed.

    Cons

    Former management was far more cerebral. The company seems to be more interesting in acquiring companies than perfecting its existing organization. Managers don't seem particularly dedicated or concerned about developing talent or career mobility for better employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start to invest more in the employees. Ensure that there is more consistency across departments in the ways that workers are treated, evaluated and compensated.
