    Pros

    -Opportunities abound if you are willing to work for them. -Senior management very approachable -Work/Life balance is likely better than most Asset Managers

    Cons

    -Employee turnover higher given management rarely ever competes to retain talent -Legacy employees who have performed at a below average/average level are never put on a performance plan or released.

    Advice to Management

    -Don't be afraid to take more risks. -Start releasing the bottom 5-10% of performers each year

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Northern Trust (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Three rounds of interview. Phone screening by the HR followed by personal interviews with three team members. Overall the process was smooth and went fairly quickly. They did not provide and lunch or offer a drink during the interview, which was strange.
