The American organization with a Swedish working culture

Consultant (Current Employee)
Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)

I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group full-time for more than a year

ProsThe Swedish working culture is friendly and creates an open athmosphere - you can ask anyonne about anything and always get a friendly welcome.

ConsThe organization is hierarchical which makes it less flexible and the process of taking decisions may take longer than average.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

New York, NY (US)

I worked at NASDAQ OMX Group as an intern for less than a year

ProsPeople were very nice and always willing to help with understanding of topic at hand. The work was very interesting.

A Horrible Place to Work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at NASDAQ OMX Group full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThey do offer free coffee.

ConsWhat can I say? Who wants to work in a place with no training budget and managers who speak to employees in a condescending and insulting manner. On top of that the office environment in Rockville is terrible and allows for very little privacy while working. In the long run, you are much better off seeking experience elsewhere and many other organizations in the Washington metro region offer better retirement packages.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider investing in your employees and treating them with professional respect and courtesy rather than tearing them down in front of others.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Nasdaq OMX

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group full-time

ProsThere is a lot of change within the organization - through acquisitions and internal growth, so it's always interesting

ConsThe constant change can wear you down at times and like most companies now, there is constant pressure to keep headcount low.

Advice to Senior ManagementFor proper growth, sometimes it's good to invest in infrastructure

Could be worse but...

Systems Analyst Specialist (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

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

ProsGreat co workers try to make it a fun place to work. The pay is pretty decent. Relatively flexible hours when needed.

ConsSystems used are outdated. Went backwards with ticketing systems which are managed in Sweden. Because of this outdated system, simple tasks are made monstrous which is counterproductive. Sometimes isn't worth the pay.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your people. Don't do all the talking nor assume you know what's going on. Slow down and listen. PLEASE.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
