I have been working at Northern Trust full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Offers the opportunity for international assignments to India, Australia etc. Cafeteria facilities are very modern and offer lots of choice!

Cons

Can be quite a depressing place to work at times with a lot of employees feeling under valued. Young talent tends to stick around for a year or two and then get poached by competitors offering much larger salaries and better career prospects.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your employees more, offer advancement and don't just pay the bare minimum as the company will lose out when they leave to go somewhere that pays more.

    Pros

    Co-workers friendly, interactions with clients, physical work environment was nice.

    Cons

    Lack of internal career growth, was a great employee yet overlooked for several positions while interviewing for outside candidates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many layers of management. Seems every one is a "Vice President" of something. Look at your internal candidates who are looking for advancement rather than plucking from outside more often than not.
