    Pros

    Easy work, laid back environment.

    Cons

    Horrible compensation. Everyone who works here is miserable and feel unappreciated. They are sending every single position possible overseas which is absolutely disgusting to watch. Training is minimal and you will only get anywhere if you suck up to your superior.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together.

    Pros

    The people that I worked with were great!

    Cons

    horrible compensation, not so great culture, bad leadership.

    Advice to Management

    At bare minimum upper management: please do everything you can to change the culture. Front-end Developers are Developers also, we don't just make things look pretty.

    Pros

    Company has good benefits and perks. Trying to stay ahead of the curve with their products and technology. They are working on a bigger product line so there is the opportunity to be exposed to more then just the financial side of the business.

    Cons

    Would rather pay a lower salary instead retaining experienced employees. If you work their more then 10 year you need to watch your back. They will bring in someone with less experience and pay a lower wage. They have become a typical company that is sending a lot of their jobs overseas to save a buck

    Advice to Management

    A vision statement that includes having 80% of your work force overseas to save a buck will decrease any loyalty you have in your experienced employees.

    Pros

    Good flexibility and work/life balance

    Cons

    Very political - no opportunities for growth, unless you know someone. There is no direction, no communication, long hours. Office location is very depressing

    Advice to Management

    Start recognizing employees for their contribution, not by who they know.

    Central location on Long Island

    Cons

    Everyone constantly boasts about the wonderful Broadridge culture. At first you are drawn into the alluring claims that are made and a couple of months in you start to see the cracks. Over time you realize that the culture is an easy mantra everyone sticks to but it's not backed by anything of substance. If you are looking for a challenge this is definitely the place, however by challenge I don't mean a character building experience, rather more like being thrown in the lion's den. You are left to identify information that doesn't exist and people who are tenured (10+ years) quizzically respond with laughter about the impossible nature of answering your request. You start here with great ambitions and drive to find yourself within a couple of months leaving each day empty knowing you can't change a place that isn't willing to change.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for the skillset you are looking for rather than hiring people who don't possess the necessary experience required. If you keep paying your associates less than the standard for the needs of the role you will continue to falter in achieving company goals.

    Pros

    Products are decent. People on the ground are great. Good work life balance - no incentives for overpeforming but no incentive for underperforming either.

    Cons

    Management operates in a very myopic world. They dont invest in people or Quality of their products. EVeryone in management is just focussed on sales with no regard for supervising services or addressing quality issues. This is a product company with no QA, no version control, no centralized knowledge base like SharePoint, no documentation and no focus on improving services to existing clients. Also, no opportunities for career growth, especially if you don't know Russian (development center is in Russia and most employees are Russian).

    Advice to Management

    Invest in people. Invest in QA. Invest in keeping existing clients happy. Reduce the size of incapable sales team and use that money to grow other areas.

    Pros

    The people who I worked with were talented and committed to providing value. They had opportunities to work from home.

    Cons

    What happens when you have two profitable departments in a similar sphere. Apparently, shipwreck the one that has more features and cost less to develop and follow the Highest Paid Person's Opinion (HiPPO). Search for Andrew McAfee - head of MIT's School of Business for more on that. Forbes also did a write up on this problem. Management seemed firm in two convictions. One: that 20 overseas developers with little experience (and have issues failing QA 5 times) could produce as good of a product as 4 senior people with the necessary financial and software experience. Second: that GAP analysis doesn't really show the true picture of differences in product features - which is an unscientific approach (see HiPPO principle).

    Advice to Management

    Getting rid of years of experience in development (killing the goose that lays the golden egg) and keeping around senior executives who give products away for free, kill profit streams, and make technology decisions based on golfing buddies rather than listening to those who actually build the products is the opposite of moving towards success. Take a lesson from Rome that even the biggest can fall.

    Pros

    work from home, people are nice to work with

    Cons

    use to be a great company to work for. over the last couple of years, not so much anymore. there is no work life balance, expect to be on call 24/7. no recognition for low level employees, management is just interested in themselves and their careers. promotions are hard to come by. stop sending jobs to india. pretty soon there won't be any more jobs in the US

    Advice to Management

    pay attention to your employees, not yourself. stop sending jobs overseas, the talent there is horrible.
