Excessive turnover, constant meetings, poor work/life balance
Advisory (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 6, 2018
Great benefits - 6% 401k match, and they have nice elements like paid time for volunteering (2 days each year). That said, what management is saying about the culture and what is the reality of the culture are polar opposites.
Nasdaq is a meeting obsessed culture - many individuals spend their entire 9+ hours in the office bouncing from one meeting to another, only to do their real work after hours. It's not uncommon to see people online well past 10 or 11pm and back online at 6 or 7am before making it into the office.
Employees respond to emails on weekends, any hour of the night, on vacations, holidays, you name it. As a result, employees are getting burnt out but continue to force the pace because of recent lay-offs and restructurings.
HR has extreme turnover - you get a new HR rep every few weeks it seems. Ever since the West Corporation deal announcement, things have taken a turn for the worse. Management boasts that the organization is "lean" but the reality is, one person ends up doing the work of 3 people, as one other review mentioned.
