All Hands on Deck!

Vice President (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

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

ProsPowerful brand recognition among target audience. Sterling reputation in volatile markets. Conservative balance sheet has kept the bank strong and solvent.

ConsCulture emphasizes compliance over initiative and innovation. Technology is many iterations behind the times and remains siloed.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvolve line managers in decision making. Reduce reliance on lower paid, lower skilled workers. Pay above market for talent. Reduce the number of meetings discussing "strategy" and spend more time problem-solving to improve business processing and client-onboarding.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
