    Terrible

    Sales MMC (Former Employee)

    ProsNone I can think of.

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

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

    Very unorganized with clueless and reactionary management.

    (Former Employee)

    ProsLocal team was great to work with.

    ConsManagement is more concerned with reactionary cost cutting and saving their own jobs than they are with the effect it will create down the road. There are a lot of faceless names calling the shots with out even stepping foot in the door to find out what the issue are and how to fix them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you keep cut down to the bone, you will have no muscle to flex your strength. Treat your employees like they matter to the company and not just a number on a spreadsheet

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

    Excellent people, team culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNasdaq 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.

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

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