    I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group full-time

    Pros

    Nasdaq has some fantastic dedicated people working hard and sincerely. It's a very team oriented culture and people tend to pull their weight. Yes, there is plenty of politics, but that is corporate life. Still, it's a great company working prominently on the world stage.

    Cons

    Under-market compensation and slow forward career path. The company is also too lean and certain groups are stretched too thin.

    I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group full-time

    Pros

    The compensation and bonus is generous.

    Cons

    Management has a very poor "lean" business model in place for their workforce. Employees feel overworked, pressured, stressed and resentful. I don't have much faith in upper management and their decision-making or goals for future growth. Cost savings on workforce will end up costing the business in other ways in the long run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try back-filling positions when people leave the company, instead of dumping the extra work onto the people who stick around. A company is not just desks and computers- it's people. The best talent won't stick around if this pattern continues.

    Pros

    None I can think of.

    Cons

    Old technology used.
    Old methods of doing business.
    CEO has major impact on all areas and fires high value, high paid staff to reduce costs and increase that all important margin.
    Upper Management have no clue on the business area I worked under.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave and let someone more able take over.
    Don't fire high value staff, allow them to grow and help the business move forward.
