    I have been working at Northern Trust


    corporate culture is positive, family oriented, safe/stable job, benefits are decent


    Very few people get pay raises, only way to move up is to entirely change jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote based on merit, not based on a "quota" for promotions. This leads to unqualified people being promoted just to fill the space, and qualified people not getting promoted due to no openings at the promotional level.
