    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Enjoy the people- a friendly and warm culture. Generous vacation policy.

    Cons

    Compensation is below market. Employees don't receive a salary adjustment upon receiving a promotion. If you have been with the company a long time it is nearly impossible to have a big bump in salary - unless you leave the company and come back which is very common for that reason.

    Advice to Management

    Retain your talent through competitive compensation.

    The benefits are decent. Senior executives are willing to talk to you.

    Team Leader, Hedge Fund Services

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Northern Trust full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Growing division of Northern Trust where culture is a bit younger and modern than the rest of the bank Frequent turnover provides opportunity for growth / development in others

    Cons

    High employee turnover Pay and employee recognition is average to poor Limited work-sponsored social events Management appears to be a bit out of touch with employee engagement / satisfaction

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employee engagement and information sharing as the company continues to grow. Consider improving compensation strategies - a little pay adjustment here and there will go a long way to improve team morale.

    Pros

    This is an investment mgmt cos that still allows the portfolio mgr to put the clients interest ahead of company profits .

    Cons

    An investment professional can probably make more income elsewhere however there will be more sales pressure/goals and that will lower ones ethical bar.

    Advice to Management

    Be more interested in managing some if the staff that coasts .
