    Run for your life

    Anonymous (Former Employee)

    ProsIf you are lazy, incompetent, have given up on life, and have severe mental problems, this would be a good fit.

    ConsToo many to list. Several departments are out of touch with reality. Horrible management -- many of whom would not survive a day in the real world, so stick around and drive smart people out of the company. Bad behavior is rewarded.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWake up. Your underlings are driving the company culture to the ground.

    UNLESS YOU NEED TO FEED YOUR FAMILY, stay away

    Full Time Worker (Current Employee) Jersey City, NJ

    ProsWork life balance is very good able to work from home

    ConsNo interest in keeping employees engaged or happy. Too many systems that don't talk to each other and be prepared to remember 76 passwords for 37 different systems/clients

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook deeper into office romances as they interfere and cause animosity among employees

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

    The worst experience of my professional life.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Wheat Ridge, CO

    ProsYou're not making minimum wage in the fast food industry.

    ConsIncompetence is encouraged and rewarded. Turnover in my group was, conservatively, 130% (it becomes difficult to measure above that) and management made no effort to correct it. The company does not have a good reputation among recruiters.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdvice for management? Replace management.

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

    The worse experience in my life, special in the Fix income dept level II

    RPG Programmer (Current Employee) Jersey City, NJ

    ProsWell if you have decided not to stop growing in your career development and just get money for doing dumb jobs like if you were an operator this is the right job.

    ConsI worked for two years in this company, in the level II dept, and it was the worse experience in my life
    - They have a package called Impact which they assume as soon as you get in the company that you already know the package, they think the package is a universal language that you must know, Indian guys are not friendly to teach you so everything has to be learn by yourself by doing, they give you works without any explanation how to do it, you have to investigate by yourself how to.
    - The boss of this dept. think people are slave and his a micro manager so be prepared for this.
    - People are afraid of this manager his always yelling bad word on people. like dumb, jack ass or mother f..., I really don't understand how a guy like this can still be there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more careful with your employ and learn how to treat people, slavery time are over a long time ago is better to work with a satisfy employee than having someone afraid of you every time waiting that you do not yell on them and saying that you are not running a school there, how do you expect people respond to any problem if you do not let others explain how to do it, . everybody knows a piece of the package and they keep to themselves,

    F

    Programmer Analyst (Former Employee) Deer Park, NY

    ProsLocation Location Location - One of the few companies left in LI that have IT needs. Nice view of golf course. Decent food and pay.

    ConsIT not allowed to do their job. IT management stifles their success with meaningless "sdlc" processes, forms, audits etc. Complete lack of transparency! To suceed at BR you must tell your management what they want to hear (truth not important). H/R is useless and doesnt stick up for the work force. Favoritism (politics), boys club, country club cronies, pay backs for helping CEO start the company, assoicate satisfaction at all time low, jews are hide to find in any high up positions, long work days, no recognition.

    Was a great place to work until dictator got control of entire IT staff and stifled productivity with cumbersome process

    Senior Quality Assurance Analyst (Current Employee) Edgewood, NY

    ProsDiverse work force, bagels twice a week, opportunity to work 80 hours a week without being compensated!

    ConsBackstabbing, politics, penny pinching, increase %, bonuses, benefits, tuition reimbursements constantly being reduced. 80 hour work weeks are common and spinning the truth to make yourself look good runs rampart. Software is old and does not satisfy the needs of the users, technology leaders throw up roadblocks and do not support their business owners. The head of IT is only focused on passing his audits and has an entire staff dedicated to scouring forms to ensure check boxes are checked without regard to any other content. Senior leaders worry more about their audit scores than doing their real job. New products are announced to the street that don't exist .

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnable your workforce and remove the dictators and poison people that are destroying the culture at Broadridge.

    Mickey Mouse Management

    QA Analyst (Current Employee) Edgewood, NY

    ProsHard to come up with any as of the past 2 years. Used to be a civil place prior to 2009. Not anymore, thanks to the current management.

    ConsThe group operates like a nazi camp. Beware, you will be getting into one of the worst process nightmare groups ever.. there is no ryhme or reason why it is the way it is.

    Pure dictatorship.

    Advice to Senior Managementplease quit and bring some qualified people in place.

    Lack of Integrity

    Administrative (Former Employee) Edgewood, NY

    Pros- Great people
    - Supportive teams. The people that end up working here will face the same challenges you do. As a result, they sort of band together sometimes, and have each other's backs.

    Cons- Poor management. Lack of ethics.
    - As many others have stated, it is a bit "cliquey". If you are not in the "in-crowd", advancement is impossible. It does not matter how great your ideas are, what you accomplished, what you have done for the company, how committed you are, or how well you did your job. If you are not part of the group, try hard as you might to reach the sky, you will never even see it. Favoritism plays a large part in this.
    - The pay and position title is low and does not represent what you actually do.
    - Workload can be extreme for the pay.
    - Workload is not distributed properly between employees (read above).
    - It is possible and common to have responsibilities above your position/pay grade, but to be denied advancement/pay.
    - Often, they will seek a new employee instead of promoting from within (with experienced employees).
    - You may be required to train new employees that are hired at a position that is 2-3 levels above you. Ridiculous, because if you have the knowledge and ability, you should be put in that position.
    - H/R is not particularly supportive of employees.
    - Although the company is very diverse, the diversity ends once you hit any of the supervisory/management levels.
    - Because of this, extraordinary talent is lost all of the time.
    - Ineffective employees are often advanced, much to the detriment of the departments, and other employees.

    Advice to Senior Management- Demand more from management.
    - Ensure that employees are being treated fairly with internal surveys that are read/analyzed by upper management.
    - Work with non-supervisory employees and ask for their input, about their challenges, and what can be done to help.
    - Listen to suggestions from these non-supervisory employees. They are the ones doing the same things day in and day out.
    - Upgrade the computer systems used by employees.
    - Keep up to date with and use technology to make your whole company more efficient.
    - Create a culture of integrity. Remove managers that do not adhere to the culture of integrity.
    - And mostly, hold employees accountable for their lack of effectiveness.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
