    I have been working at Nasdaq

    Pros

    Good employee benefits including income protection insurances, company stocks.

    Cons

    Structure is getting hierarchical, most mangers are not leaders they prefer authority coz they don't people skills. When you talk about motivation they laugh at you, they don't believe you need to be cross functional trained. They think they are agile but they are doing everything against it. HR is still box ticking even though they try not to sound like one.
