I worked at Northern Trust full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Overall good work life balance, nice people and steady company.

Cons

The people are hard working and really put forth an effort. The company is riddled by lifers that are hanging around and resist modernity. Not innovative, tradition takes president over common since.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Inject new ideas, trust the experts you hire and embrace change. And for a lot of lifers retire and enjoy your stock.

    Pros

    Good Work/Life Balance
    Great People
    Good Benefits

    Cons

    Systyms need to be upgraded/too slow
    Although there are good opportunities throughout the organization; it is difficult to transition to certain areas (ie. Client Facing Roles, Human Resources) Transferrable skills are not always considered

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rick Waddell is a great leader and walks the walk. He also holds his direct reports accountable for ensuring they stay close to their people and understand what is going on beyond the numbers. Stay focused on the internal talent and ensure there are opportunities for talented people to continue growing. Encourage all business units to consider transferable skills for opportunities beyond the "raw" experience within a certain area. Many transferrable skills can't be learned (ie. good management skills, communication skills, leadership, etc.) Business knowledge can be learned.
