    I worked at Broadridge full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Location Location Location - One of the few companies left in LI that have IT needs. Nice view of golf course. Decent food and pay.

    Cons

    IT not allowed to do their job. IT management stifles their success with meaningless "sdlc" processes, forms, audits etc. Complete lack of transparency! To suceed at BR you must tell your management what they want to hear (truth not important). H/R is useless and doesnt stick up for the work force. Favoritism (politics), boys club, country club cronies, pay backs for helping CEO start the company, assoicate satisfaction at all time low, jews are hide to find in any high up positions, long work days, no recognition.

    I worked at Broadridge as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Paid well. Mostly of the people are very nice to work with and very easy to talk to, even when things can get a bit hectic.

    Cons

    Big politics. You have to get on the right side of the right people. It also gets pretty hectic and at times it seems like management is trying to keep everyone's stress level high.

    I have been working at Broadridge full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Access to various levels of leaders (much more than at a larger company); great colleagues; good benefits and wellness programs (zumba class, incentive program to earn $)

    Cons

    Very poor work-life balance in a number of businesses / corporate groups; Journal Square office is a dump; morale overall is not good, at least at JSQ; old boys clubs still exist here; lots of travel between various NY area offices which can be a huge pain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address work-life balance where problems exist - don't just manage to improve employee satisfaction scores. Reconsider if the current values of the company are what you really want them to be (again work-life balance is an example, don't tell us you value the work-life balance of all when you clearly do not).

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

    Pros

    Good salaries and great bonuses if you qualify. The staff really work together as a family which includes all the love and petty squabbles and competition for attention that you find in a typical family. My coworkers have been the best part of this job.

    Cons

    Another company trying to do more with less and favoring outsourced solutions over our own local talent to the detriment of the heart of the company. And, once you are in a role, don't look for promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The people who have product knowledge are aging and you are not nurturing new talent to fill in. Your core knowledge is dying, retiring, or walking out the door and it's not coming back.

    I worked at Broadridge full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The local head of IT at Coppell is an excellent boss overall and does his best to cut down on the Dilbert-like management fads in favor of getting work done. Show him your value and he'll do anything in his power to help you.

    Cons

    - Expect to waste plenty of time on pointless meetings, paperwork, and long discredited management fads of the past. Be prepared to work in a Dilbert-like company, complete with cute little programs in place to pretend to care about employees.
    - Highly political, as older employees hoard core knowledge to keep their jobs. Do not expect to work with anything remotely current.
    - Technology only progresses when absolutely forced to do so, and then only with the bare minimum budget. Improvements are only possible by implementing them quietly, then revealing them after they've proven their benefits.
    - Expect to have to work around the existing infrastructure, as the network admins are bottom of the barrel. Enjoy having multiple virus scanners, file watchers, and resource-sucking snake oil security programs bog down your desktop.
    - So long as the desired results are obtained, no one cares how it's done or how long it works. Bandaids and hardcoded values abound.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge that printing is the past and put more focus on financial services of the future. Saying everyone is valuable but acting the complete opposite only leads to people jealously guarding their fiefdoms and having to work around coworkers.
