I worked at Broadridge full-time (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.
