    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Work life balance Good place for semi-retirement if that's what you want Good place if you are willing to leverage your connections to big money Its conservativeness will keep it out of big trouble but also miss big opportunities

    Cons

    Highly political Must be a networking cheerleader to succeed Very PC Consensus style drives very slow decision making Challenging established thinking is punished Management is out of touch with the market and the workers Pay is low relative to the market but they don't ask for much either Mediocrity is abundant -no surprise given the rest Avoid if you are ambitious or action-oriented

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example -take your cuts first

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    For the most part it is a high integrity organization. I have never been asked to compromise my values. A good place for work/life balance. It is rare that I need to work more than 45 or 50 hours a week and most managers are very flexible around work schedules.

    Cons

    Too many layers of management and management that tends to take care of itself before taking care of others. Pay and benefits are just OK.

    Advice to Management

    If you are asking others to take cuts in pay and benefits don't take big raises for yourself.
