    Great pay, no work-life balance.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsGreat pay. Great benefits, and you will work in a technology focused firm that is always moving forward.

    ConsVery little work life balance. You will feel like a criminal when you leave the office during the day. Also, there is a lot of stress in the day-to-day operations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't just automatically promote people after their two years of service.

    Decent pay/bonus, horrible work-life balance, sink or swim training program

    Senior Analyst (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsThe people that work here are really bright. But since we have been acquired by Northern Trust, some of the more senior/brightest employees have been jumping ship to go elsewhere.
    Exposure to work with several hedge fund clients.
    Not as micro managed as other firms, if you get your work done, most likely won't be bothered.

    ConsLong hours, while working through lunch.
    Not much of a culture, people tend to keep to themselves (mostly due to the fact that there is too much work to have much time socializing).
    Sink or swim training program, employees are thrown clients without any formal training, and expected to pick up how to do the work.
    Not much input from employees are taken into consideration when huge decisions are made by upper management that directly affect that work that you do.
    Management that doesn't understand the day to day processes (therefore may not make the best decisions for the group as a whole).
    Uneven workload distribution, some employees may work 12+ hour days, while employees in the same group work a 40 hour work week.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep employees more in the loop regarding major decisions, and ask for their feedback regarding solutions to problems.
    Promote a more social environment -- encourage weekly (or even monthly) lunches with the team.

    Want to be Pigeon Holed?

    Operations Associate (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsThey have free catered lunch.
    2 performance reviews a year
    Soft Spoken, intelligent employees.

    ConsCompartmentalization- restricted sharing of information and learning.
    low recognition of employee efforts over and above job requirements.
    extremely low compensation for hours worked.
    awkward corporate culture that embraces silence
    dual-class/ dual-pay structure at firm between Operations and Accounting, regardless of work performed.
    Average hours of a week to "meet expectations" - 65
    Average Bonus, yearly % : 5%
    Average Raise, yearly % 5%
    denied for CFA and grad school reimbursement because those talents and experiences were "not in line with my current job requirements as an operations associate. "
    little to no investment in employee's career goals and quality of life beyond immediate job requirements

    Advice to Senior ManagementOperations is not an enjoyable profession and thus should be compensated accordingly if retention is a goal. Turnover and Burnout is high among your employees and something must be done about the negative attitude and culture that permeates throughout the organization. Approximately 75% of employees polled Disliked their job and were dissatisfied with compensation across a two year period.
