I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good co-workers who will help you in a pinch.

Cons

Most managers clueless and should not have their jobs, just look at what happened with the Facebook IPO. Most of what you learn is by yourself or from a co-worker. No help from Management. Low pay, long hours and micromanagement.

    Pros

    Good company name on resume, use it to get out and find a better company to work for, decent health insurance

    Cons

    Poor leadership at all levels, over last few years have consistenly piled on more and more work to the little people. Should be hiring due to more and more work coming in,new contracts being won, instead they are laying people off. They are suppose to be a market for technology and their technology is horrid, look at the day of the Facebook IPO and those issues, that was the tip of the iceberg. Regular workers are fed up and just trying to hang on until they can find something better. The GCS division is incredibly low-staffed, if clients only knew their jaws would drop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When business is way up in certain areas, and staff are feeling incredibly over-worked, don't ask them to do more with less and lay people off, hire. Take a pay cut like the rest of us
