Pros

Your 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

Cons

Projects 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 ManagementAdvice

Sometimes you can not get consensus and you just have to lead

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

    Pros

    this place will encourage you to drink and smoke more frequently

    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 here. You get promoted overnight if you're caucasian, or 'political'. Hard work isn't recognized, management doesn't back your play. Negative people who have all the time on their hands to gossip 24/7.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop rewarding political and negative managers, and ignoring the worker bees who work hard.

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

    Pros

    Good People, Work Life Balance, Stable, Low Turnover rate. Was once a great place to work, now it's only average.

    Cons

    Senior management is clueless, does not listen to their staff, and is more likely to have knee jerk reaction than to address the real problems. They've outsourced too much and a lot of knowledge with it.
    Keeps reducing benefits year after year and shows the employees that the company no longer cares about them any more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit outsourcing. Hire talented people, invest in the staff and show them you care again.
