      Cons

      Good people & culture but lack of growth opportunities and low pay

      Pros

      Lots of great, smart, nice people work here. Good work-life balance for most people & opportunity to work from home. Overall good benefits, including 401K match, 3 weeks vacation, sick days, (but only 12 weeks of maternity leave), several health insurance options, dental & visual insurance, tuition assistance, relaxed dress code, free fruits & beverages. The CEO, Adena, is very enthusiastic about making a company a better place and transform it to fintech firm. She has a good vision about the company’s future and works hard to achieve it. Great and well recognized brand.

      Cons

      The pay is low, much lower than for the same positions at other firms and it hardly increases over the years even if you get assigned more responsibilities. The company tries to save money on employees and some departments are understaffed, which makes it difficult or sometimes impossible to deliver projects on time. It is very difficult to move professionally around the company, get promoted or grow, especially if you are a woman. Significant domination of white male employees from middle to executive management levels - women seem to not get promoted, although get hired equally and retained on entry level positions. Middle management has no clue what they are doing, do not have the same vision as the CEO, and often not supportive of their teams. Many of them do the functional job themselves forgetting about their managerial (Leadership) responsibilities. Promotions and changes happen only on the executive level, even when somebody leaves the firm, the senior management and the c-suite move around, middle and entry levels only experience increase in responsibilities without pay increase and promotions. Lots of unproductive, time wasting meetings with managers who has no idea what they are doing.

      So glad to be out of there!

      Pros

      Good benefits such as HCF Health Insurance top family cover, extra superannuation, bonus plan & equity, plus discounted purchasing of shares. Regular social events. Great location by Sydney Harbour. Some nice & competent staff.

      Cons

      I got really bad pay for the amount of experience that I had, my skills and my qualifications, and the responsibility that I had. I worked in the Corporate Solutions part of the business. A lot of management are on huge salaries, even the sales team get huge commissions and salaries. Totally hamstrung by a lack of resources and no budget. A lot of talentless overpaid clueless lazy people in senior management roles. Some dishonest and incompetent staff. A lot of backstabbing and greasing up to senior management by certain people to get promoted, and greasing to secure their own roles in the company at the expense of others. Staff drinking too much at work functions or at lunch and acting inappropriately. A lot of people doing the bare minimum in their role. A lot hoping for redundancy. A lot of useless people brought across from Thomson Reuters. One guy who was brought over from the US to increase sales of one product - Thomson ONE IR did the exact opposite- in the time he was in Sydney sales dipped 25% of that product but yet he got wait for it - promoted?! He was also instrumental in getting several people made redundant who were working a lot harder than him - he used to watch US sport on his computer in work time!?! He did next to no work. Total lack of support for the Australian market, the company is totally focussed on the US. I was lied to and told I was going to get a pay rise and promoted by management and HR. I was also lured into a meeting with HR to be made redundant with a lie - a fellow employee - the same guy mentioned above - made out he wanted to have a meeting with me (he was even carrying a document) and led me into an office where HR were waiting - totally dishonest! HR could have just invited me to a meeting. No chance for career advancement in Australia - a dead end job. Totally underpaid. I found the job and company to be depressing and frustrating. So glad to be out of there! I was glad to leave and had been looking at leaving for some time and was glad to do so with a redundancy package. I'm so much happier now and earning a lot more money and surrounded by competent knowledgeable staff.

      Pros

      Decent pay, great benefits, culture is decent-to-not-so-great. Really depends on which department/division you are in, as well as your reporting line.

      Cons

      Shifting priorities at division senior management level. Manipulation of bonus goals during the year. Few professional growth or development opportunities if you are not in a major hub office.

      Pros

      NASDAQ has good employee benefits including stock and option grants although those are heavily tilted to senior management.

      Cons

      NASDAQ acquired Thomson's IR unit in 2013. NASDAQ pretty much turned over its entire corporate solutions group and culture to the Thomson people, and gave and continues to give opportunities and advancement to the Thomson alum. Meanwhile the core IR unit has consistently seen revenues and product quality decline - this is masked in earnings reports by NASDAQ's acquisition of other companies in the space and allocation of those revenue to the market technology/corporate solutions unit.

      Pros

      Nice work place, well located and enjoyable colleagues. Work is interesting, developing interesting products and services and senior management seems to know where they are heading.

      Cons

      Work life/balance can rapidbly be very imbalanced. Nasdaq has a lean policy (positions are re-filled only when everyone else is exhausted...) and salary is below industry average.
