Corporate Solutions Department is a great way to start a career
Advisory Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 20, 2017
Nasdaq is a great company that is constantly growing. The Corporate Solutions division is somewhat separate from the fin-tech side of Nasdaq, but it is still a good starting spot nonetheless. The benefits/compensation are competitive and its a great way to gain a deeper understanding of the markets.

Pros
great people and atmosphere

Slow advancment

Work place was very decent
Senior IT Consultant (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILFebruary 7, 2016
Once all the equipment was installed, there is a lot of down time and it can get pretty boring, non-stressful is nice, but I like a challenge and I like to keep learning new software and things.

They were very flexible when it came for time off, but now I realize my peer just wanted the over time and always encouraged me to take time off so he could cover the hours.
Pros
Easy and decent atmosphere to work in
Cons
The commute was terrible! Rumors were abundant, which were not good

Loved NASDAQ!
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAOctober 4, 2015
NASDAQ is truly a great place to work. They also offer opportunity for growth, an overall empower you to be great. You receive endless training to ensure you are current on all updates, and new products.

I learned a huge amount of Sales Techniques, and also Traveled for Trainings, and Team Buildings. TO work at the Exchange was truly an experience of a Lifetime that I will always value. The Hardest part of the job was not reaching the Sales Goal when you desired it most. The most enjoyable part was my colleagues, Manager, and the Quarterly bonuses we'd receive.
Pros
Travel, Expenses
Cons
Merger, cause too many lay offs

Good to start but get out quick
Network Engineer (Former Employee) –  NY, NYAugust 17, 2015
If the name didn't mean anything this would be a worthless company to work for, as that's the only thing good about it, the name Nasdaq on your resume. Two words: Personnel Grinder. It doesn't matter one lick about what you know, it's all about who you know. If you find yourself with a new manager who is advancing their own team agenda and you don't fit, you'll be signing up for unemployment. What a terrible company, management is *awful*
Pros
Name on your resume
Cons
Everything else

Broadcast employees one step below janitorial staff
Broadcast Technician (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 9, 2015
If you work in broadcast at the Marketsite get ready for the following:

NOT SO GOOD
-no chance for advancement, the department is minuscule.
-the pay is not bad (50-80K) but there are much higher paid employees in the financial areas of the company making 6 figures +
-the control room is basically a closet, and the heat does not work
when the outside temps fall into the teens and below.
-they pile so much work on you that the chance for mistakes in a complex environment is very high.
-mistakes are not tolerated and you will be terminated for making too many
-low level management has no real control over the employees or to determine the amount of work requested from the upper management.
-intimidation from upper management to be terminated is high
-upper management are not broadcasting professionals and do not understand the limitations and capabilities of a broadcast studio
-"make it happen or we will find someone who can" is the mantra of upper management.
-nepotism is rampant
-chance that they will claim you were doing something inappropriate on your computer and use it to fire you (this happened to a colleague)
-the speeches for the bell ceremonies are absurd, they basically
copy and paste from the listed companies "about us" page
Nasdaq management sound like fools when it is obvious that they
really have no idea of what they are talking about.

THE GOOD
-pay is OK, not great but better than some places
-benefits are good, Cigna is just OK not great
-bonus of about 5% yearly
-restricted stock awards, if you can hang in there for at least 3 yrs
  more...
-the CEO is nice and a pleasure to work with
  less
