Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJuly 21, 2018
Nasdaq is a great company to work for, it was close to home, the job is stressful at times but supervisors and co-workers were willing to assist and the hours were flexible.

Senior Market Operations Analyst (Former Employee) –  Trumbull, CTJune 20, 2018
Gave employees chances to learn about Stock Market as they are a competitor of NYSE. Systems were a bit outdated and needed a refresh to stay competitive

Designer (Former Employee) –  Rockville, MDJune 11, 2018
The company was not the best experience that I had in my career. I thought as a whole the company was okay. However, within my department there were some issues that I didn't particularly like and when I addressed them was turned away. I would have stay longer but management was not good. You know what they say people leave there managers not the job.

Great places, great people
Flex Developer (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 9, 2018
No complaints. I was treated very fairly. There was a great team atmosphere. People genuinely cared about each other and would help each other out. There was also great expertise within the team. Hours were quite reasonable as well. Development practices were well tuned.

Hard to find much to complain about. The dev team sometimes lacked proper support and planning from within the bigger company, but it was a minor issue.
Pros
Work from home, great dev practices, good people, reasonable hours
Cons
Maybe some lack of direction in the bigger picture on the project as a whole (minor complaint)

Job Culture
Excessive turnover, constant meetings, poor work/life balance
Advisory (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJune 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.
Pros
6% 401k, volunteer time (2 days / year), preventative care day
Cons
no work/life balance, meeting obsessed

Analyst (Former Employee) –  NYCMay 30, 2018
Interesting work, found some colleagues to be intelligent and hardworking. Limited work life balance and concerns over downsizing. Decent benefits and compensation.

If you enjoy doing the job of 3 people - this is it!
Compliance Director (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 28, 2018
Nasdaq does not hire a lot ... they will backfill positions vacated by previous employees.

This means you will be doing the job of 3 people because NASDAQ is too cheap to hire enough hands to give you time off...

Be prepared to work during your off hours / vacations and/or weekends...
Pros
Coworkers are nice
Cons
Management is too cheap to hire and allow employees true work life balance

Nasdaq is a good place to work with some culture problems
Systems Administrator - Project Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 21, 2018
Nasdaq was a great place to work and I was able to excel. The overall culture was a bit oppressive and hindered professional growth. I enjoyed my time there otherwise.

Good work environment
Senior Client Order Specialist (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAJanuary 4, 2018
Fun work environment. However, there is marginal room for upward growth. Many staff members are overworked. Management typically has their employees best interests in mind.

Great Place to Learn, Poor work/life balance
Marketing Specialist (Former Employee) –  New York, NYDecember 8, 2017
Nasdaq was a wonderful place to grow and advance in my career. The opportunities I had there were amazing. But it is fast paced and extremely stressful. There are way too many meetings during the day so working after hours is a requirement.

Great place to work (except in HR)
HR Business Partner (Former Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 17, 2017
Great place to work except in HR. Worst run HR department you could ever work for. Clients are great overall, benefits are good, and compensation can be very good. Forget about work life balance though. if you thrive in super chaotic environments and want great, intelligent work, it's fantastic. great work, terrible leaders in HR. Other leaders throughout the organization are quite good especially at the Executive level. Good vision, and such smart people.
Pros
Smart people
Cons
Depends on your department

Live from Times Square
Events Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 3, 2017
Working at the Nasdaq MarketSite was part events management and part live television production. Our group was responsible for producing the market open events each day. Preparing talent and C level executives to go live on television to "ring the bell" at the Nasdaq Stock Market" was an exciting part of each day. Professionalism at all levels made this a rewarding experience.

Lack of Clarity
Employee (Former Employee) –  USAOctober 10, 2017
It's expected that companies adapt and change, but this organization can't focus on one thing for more than 3 months. Most of the key leadership expect you to work non-stop but ironically preach time off and work-life balance as key talking points.

Great company, not so great work life/balance
Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 4, 2017
Great company, not so great work life/balance. The money is great, the top level management is great, the middle management needs works. Overall, if you like making money but sacrificing time, go for it.

Fast paced, no two days were the same.
Assistant Sales Manager Richmond office (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VASeptember 13, 2017
They unexpectedly closed the entire office. I was introduced to a really unique platform. It is one of the harder financial software programs that I have seen, but after investing a few hours on it, it has turned into my favorite financial software that I have used, The best part of the job was being able to do a successful demonstration via Webex of the platform. Also had the opportunity to introduce both Separately Managed Accounts and Unified Managed Accounts (SMAs and UMAs).
Pros
Good pay
Cons
No job security
