    I worked at Pershing as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Staff is nice. Growing pains from acqusition of PNC's investment arm seem to be over. At lower levels you can walk in, work, and leave worries at the door at the end of the day.

    Cons

    King of Prussia, PA location is in middle of nowhere in a converted warehouse. Pay not competive. Worked as contractor for $20 an hour and refused offer of fulltime employment when it actually broke down to only $14 an hour. HR application process is a bad joke. If the company you worked for 8 years ago is out of business be prepared to search your house for W-2s from 8 years back because they want physical proof for that $14 an hour job. If you have an issue and contact HR they'll run through a laundry list of "Have you tried this?" and when the list is exhausted they'll tell you they'll "get back to you" and never do. No SOP, everybody is doing his own thing that he's cobbled together through trial and error. Software is embarrassingly out of date. Operations being moved to India, tech support is already there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit forcing employees to go to pep rallies for a "brand relaunch" i.e. subtly changing the color of the corporate logo. Write down some actual procedure somewhere, when 5 guys in the trading department quit the positions had to be restarted from scratch because no one knew what they did. You constantly tout your devotion to diversity and inclusion but management is the whitest group of people I've ever seen. Reintroduce the flexible scheduling. Allow more people to work from home. You have a pretty talented workforce, but you constantly try to wear them out and beat them down.

    Great people, but too much focus on short-term, tactical efforts.
