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

Pros

It is nice to work for a company with a great reputation. It can make obtaining new business easier. Most people don't work more than 45 hours per week, so there is work-life balance.

Cons

Raises for the common folk are small. The executives get nice raises. Limited career mobility. Lots of projects to handle while managing your clients. Middle management keeps expanding.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your people well in a record breaking year, don't blame the interest rate enviornment for low raises. SVPs and above should be more accountable for new business - they should be rainmakers.
