    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.

    Opportunity for improvement for staff, Supervisor and Management personnel

    Cross training your personnel will improved and give employee the opportunity to be more productive in various field and the advantage to have someone to replace any employee in case of any emergency or lack off man power in any area.

    Pros

    Lots of comraderie and feeling like being part of a second family with fellow non-management associates. Did learn alot about several different job positions within the organization.

    Cons

    Had a nearly 1 to 1, 16 associates to 15 members of management, management to associare ratio in my section at one point during employment. Often had to wait for or never received answers to questions. When we, myself and fellow associates, did receive answers they were often conflicting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have everyone get on the same page and actually use all lines of communication available to you.

    The ability to morph my role into different area's allows for a different type of career path. The people I work with are great and enthusiastic.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities in my group are hard to come by. While its a negative, every role is what you make of it.

    Pros

    You're not making minimum wage in the fast food industry.

    Cons

    Incompetence is encouraged and rewarded. Turnover in my group was, conservatively, 130% (it becomes difficult to measure above that) and management made no effort to correct it. The company does not have a good reputation among recruiters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice for management? Replace management.

    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

    Broadridge has a big company mentality, don't go there expecting to change the world, everyone likes "Status Quo".

    Pros

    Overall a good company with good benefits/compensation levels - there are many good people on the street.

    Cons

    Corporate Finance management team could use some restructuring, everyone there is very comfortable and not always in a good way, it's a very heavy reporting environment with little use of the information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what's being said and management by fear will never work long term.

    Good place to work but overall strategy from mgmt. not always clear

    I have been working at Broadridge full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Compensation was right on market for tech jobs but low paying for client service positions when they seem to have to handle the brunt of the issues.
    Employees are good to work with, all pitch in when there is a crisis. Most willing to share knowledge as well on everyday projects.
    Project work goes pretty smoothly, with other departments mostly willing to do their share to get upgrades and new functionality to clients.

    Cons

    Benefits were competitive, however, again, certain pay grades never got any extra bonuses, stock purchase, etc. when they worked as hard as others. Not very rewarding for busting your butt, working late and on weekends.
    Too low paying for client service jobs when it's more than your average customer service position and you need to know about the financial world.
    Some department managers allowed to be constant blockades in getting fixes out for clients. Upper mgmt. doesn't seem to know how to deal with problematic people like this and instead ignore their actions which allows things to progress to worse scenarios.
    All talk about moving to newer technologies but not everyone gets to share in the changes. Some training occurs for tech departments but you are not always allowed to use what you have learned. A waste of company money and department resources if they aren't going to be able to apply what they have learned, even if it's just a prototype. And prototypes shouldn't be automatically attached to a raise/bonus if you're trying it out for the first time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to deal with problem managers. Allowing them to be a blockade and work against progress under the guise of "making things more accurate for clients" is not a resolution. They just make others jump thru imaginary hoops that are an inefficient waste of time and energy.
