    Pros

    Good benefits, smart people, work space being remodeled.

    Cons

    IT staff is overworked and stressed from trying to do too much without sufficient resources. Senior management wants first-class results but doesn't want to hire enough people to make that possible, so everyone works overtime without compensation. Raises are pathetic. The knives are out so CYA,

    Advice to Management

    Be careful not to take on your clients' disdain for working people. Value the tremendous loyalty and dedication of your employees. Hire enough IT staff to create the first-class infrastructure you want. Share the wealth. Stop playing the blame game.

    I have been working at Bessemer Trust Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people have been at the company for 20-30 years and this is there last stop. The company is stable and if you have kids it is a wonderful place to work.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no room for advancement! Don't come here expecting to get promoted when you do well or getting paid market. Literally someone has to die for you to get promoted. If you don't have any kids, don't expect to get the same treatment for time off.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more from within and pay your employees better and they might stay...
