IT focused Business organization but not doing good at IT Strategy

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group full-time

ProsProvides good benefits. Exposure to business and opportunity to work closely with business partners. Spread across many countries providing opportunities to work with others from different cultures and backgrounds.

ConsDoes not have good Work-Life balance. Senior Management is not effective in Strategic planning and execution. Lacking in proper Risk Management. Purely bonus driven performance culture. Organization has primarily grown through acquisitions and cost control measures. There is a general lack of knowledge and experience among Senior Management in what it takes to build Mission Critical and Enterprise applications.

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management is too focused on improving profitability and NASDAQ OMX share price to care about how things really work (or don't work) on the ground.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Cold corporate culture with limited resources

Client Services (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at NASDAQ OMX Group full-time for more than a year

ProsTasks keep you busy daily. Client-facing opportunities. Good mix of financial services and technology platform. Corporate environment.

ConsVery limited workspace, such as desks, conference rooms, kitchen, restroom.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to your shining stars from the ground up. Some middle managers are not fully qualified for their roles - keeps saying "I don't know" when you ask technical questions rather than mobilize resources to get answers.

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

ConsSome of senior management are not that bright; others are excellent. It really depends on your manager, who can make your life hell while there.
