    I worked at Broadridge part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    exposure to technical side of financial softwares such as Impact and Finance Pro, good benefits, create great contacts with clients over time

    Cons

    poorly managed, training is available if you train yourself, office politics ruin the atmosphere, people who deserve promotions don't get the recognition they deserve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    put in a bit more of an effort on training new employees instead of water cooler gossip

    I have been working at Broadridge as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    For actual permanent employees the benefits are great as is the work-life balance.

    Cons

    They are far too complacent about using temp help. They keep you on as a long term temp for years and years meaning you get none of the perks of being an actual Broadridge employee but do all the same work. In my department 1/3 of the people are temps, several of which have been here for more than a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Six months should be more than enough time to evaluate someone's performance and whether or not you need the actual headcount in your department. It's frustrating to people to spend so long in a job and not feel valued and most of us are still looking for full-time permanent work outside your company.

    I worked at Broadridge

    Pros

    Diverse product mix for financial services industry

    Cons

    Teams are very click ish and very closed to new employees. Onboarding is an absolute disaster. If you are not on the inner circle of your team you will not survive the constant shift in priorities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to focus on real and value added employee communications and assess how many different silo's the business currently has. Very US focused.

    I worked at Broadridge

    Pros

    Good Benefits. They have a niche market so will be around for a while.

    Cons

    Very much a "who knows who" company. If you aren't in the golden circle, forget advancement and watch your back. Unhealthy competition is promoted amongst employees. Creativity and loyalty are not rewarded. It's the "YES" people who are sent up the ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of some of the "old boys club" management. Recognize the toxic environment that has been developed through "every person for themselves" atmosphere.

    Pros

    Solid team of people willing to help each other out.

    Cons

    The absolute worst management team ever. No regard to people's personal time/commitments. Expected to be available 24x7. No ability to drive decisions; people treated like slaves and puppets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your people to flourish by empowering them. Trust in your talent.

    I have been working at Broadridge full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    -decent benefits, low monthly cost but high deductibles
    -good opportunity for a fresh out of college person to get their feet wet and get some years of experience under their belt (before getting a "real" job)

    Cons

    -wellness programs are a joke
    -pay is very low compared to market
    -talent is in and then out once they realize what kind of company it is or when they get tired of kissing managements rear-ends
    -hr is very incompetent; they cant handle talent searches or even day to day issues (not sure how they walk and talk at the same time)
    -management is mostly clueless can't operate on their own thought or use input from others
    -management sometimes acts like they are reading from a script and cant function without it
    -nothing gets done for a huge company with record profits there are "no resources" to get anything accomplished
    -always cutting back and usually at cost of heads

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get a grip on reality! look out the window every now and then because everyone that reports to you is telling you the sun is shining but it's a hurricane out there

    Pros

    Paid well. Mostly of the people are very nice to work with and very easy to talk to, even when things can get a bit hectic.

    Cons

    Big politics. You have to get on the right side of the right people. It also gets pretty hectic and at times it seems like management is trying to keep everyone's stress level high.
