Advice to ManagementAdvice

When a new employee comes in for contract position another contracted person shouldn't be the one to train them, and they should give them a chance, at least the minimum of 30 days

    I have been working at Northern Trust full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Looked highly upon in the industry, known as a great custodian with expertise in the area. Work life as many have stated if you are looking for that.

    Cons

    Not the place to be if you are a fast mover. Many people around me have been there many years and are doing the same job as me. They seem to promote what is left which is usually experienced people in the company but probably aren't the brightest or ambitious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a program to really give young go getters a vision of what their career could look like at Northern, otherwise it is just a stopping place where many move on.

    Pros

    Hedge Fund Services is a great position for anyone coming out of college. You gain experience the operation side of trading

    Cons

    There is no formal training so you must learn as you go. Most teams are at capacity so you will need to be patient when asking for help
