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

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay. Bonus w/ stock vested. Best in it's industry, stable company.

    Cons

    All about numbers and revenue. Not a lot of morale boost. Small budgets for every team means no fun. Just work hard and look good and their happy. Maybe you'll get a thank you email.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Boost company morale. Simplify positions and not add extra work onto roles. Allow more money making opportunities for everyone, not just sales and big wigs. Share the wealth.

    Pros

    Tasks keep you busy daily. Client-facing opportunities. Good mix of financial services and technology platform. Corporate environment.

    Cons

    Very limited workspace, such as desks, conference rooms, kitchen, restroom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to your shining stars from the ground up. Some middle managers are not fully qualified for their roles - keeps saying "I don't know" when you ask technical questions rather than mobilize resources to get answers.

    I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Brand recognition, intense work environment, never a dull moment. Learn a lot on your own.

    Cons

    Poor management decision making, understaffed, cutting to the bone, overworked, no training. Cost cutters celebrated but the negative impact on quality will be noticed and likely blamed elsewhere. No training. Bottom line is king. The best and brightest not promoted. Favoritism rules. Across the board dissatisfaction and people trying to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out what's going on below you. Your decision making is so clouded by cost cutting that you are increasingly jeopardizing quality over low cost. Will have a real impact when the problems become so big it can't be ignored and clients will notice - p.s., they already have....

    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.
