Consensus-driven team environment

Vice President Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsYour opinion is listened to on a variety of issues
Attempt to get everyone on board before moving with initiatives
Work life balance is fantastic with paid days to work for charitable causes
High engagement amongst employees

ConsProjects tend to move sloooooooow due to attempting to reach consensus
Everyone is so nice to the point where a large group of employees within the bank have not been forced to reach their full potential

Advice to Senior ManagementSometimes you can not get consensus and you just have to lead

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Horrible, steer far from this place

    Consultant (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    I worked at Northern Trust as a contractor for more than 3 years


    Pros: this place will encourage you to drink and smoke more… Cons: far too many to list. 24/7 work environment, non existent 'work/life balance' which is a serious joke. People who started here and continue to rot… Advice to Senior Management: stop rewarding political and negative managers, and ignoring the worker… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
