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

Pros

Typically stable company, but as all companies in the financial industry are being beaten up these days, Northern is doing very well. Still offers a pension plan and 401k matching.

Cons

Not as friendly to employees as years past. Northern is getting too big to "care about individual employees"

Advice to ManagementAdvice

See Cons above.

    I have been working at Northern Trust full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very strong company history. Looking for ways to improve and grow business in the area. Forward thinking.

    Cons

    Forward thinking, but backword acting. Trying to be like the other guys, rather than capitalizing on what has made them who they are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be proactive rather than reactive. Look to the past for things that have set you apart. Focus on client service and less on increasing profitability, or you are going to loose your position as number one wealth management firm.

    I worked at Northern Trust full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company is fairly big so there is a lot of mobility. There are, however, a TON of politics so it can be difficult at times to make a transition.

    Cons

    The area I was in had a so called "boys club" as senior management so bad managers in this club where hard to do anything about.
