    Pros

    Good learning experience. Salaries are in line with the job.

    Cons

    Slow to market too much process. The company caters to the larger customers and has no regard for the small to mid size clients. Senior Management does not focus on the core business.

    I worked at Dtcc

    Pros

    Great people and generous salaries. I was a long-term employee there and was able to work on varied assignments that were interesting.

    Cons

    The organization has become less people-conscious and more bottom line oriented. The morale is lower than previously and there is a dedicated effort to downsize old-timers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lots of good people and organizational knowledge is being kicked out the door. retain these resources!

    Pros

    Really diverse workplace. Promotes diversity - cultural, sexual, and racial. Lots of room for movement within and around the company. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Very Hierarchical. Sometimes rigid with regards to decision making. Can sometimes be difficult to move up in the organization unless you have a strong boss who works on your behalf.

    Former Employee - IT Summer Intern in Jersey City, NJ

    I worked at Dtcc as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The company culture is fantastic. Everyone is extremely nice, especially senior management. Everyone is helpful and is willing to help you succeed. While DTCC is not well known, it is a great place to get your foot in the door. DTCC is well connected with financial institutions and it will look great on your resume. If you are interested in working for financial institutions like Morgan Stanley, J.P. Morgan and etc.. this is a great place to start.

    Cons

    While I was working there, there were not many cons. Everyone is extremely busy, so sometimes they do not have time to attend to your situation, but everyone tries there hardest to do so. I had a great experience in my area as a business system analyst. However I heard many other interns did not have a great time working in other departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management was fantastic and I do not think I saw any fault with them. I think management was what made the job experience extremely worth while.
