    Cons

    Not for people who are uncomfortable with change or want to do things "the same old way".

    Pros

    Work from home one day out of the week.
    Employees are approachable and some are willing to take out the time to teach you.
    There are training courses you can take for free
    Benefits are pretty good

    Cons

    Even though you get to work from home one day out of the week, upper management really frowns upon working remotely.
    Upper management are distant from their employees
    Never ending work given to you today that upper management wants done ... Yesterday!
    Hard to get upper managements attention when there is something important they need to approve or get done then you are blamed for not getting the work done in time.
    Old school work mentality.
    Hard to advance
    A lot of role shuffling

    Pros

    The company has tremendous potential and opportunity its
     markets and attempts to embrace progressive work from home and other HR policies. It wants to do the right thing by its employees but doesn't know how.

    Cons

    So many, unfortunately - a highly fractured leadership team that thrives on managing in silos and reacting to crises that are self-inflicted, a highly political work environment that rewards tenured people who have no big-company work experience and extreme resistance to process development or investment in infrastructure. And all of this is exacerbated by tremendous growth through acquisition, with no ability to integrate on the back end. Work hours can be arduous at times.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down and take a hard look at what's happening to the company; its becoming a tangled mess, which will ultimately destroy it if something doesn't change soon. The organization needs to actively and realistically assess talent, as its top-heavy and wasting valuable dollars on well-paid people who aren't adding any value. Don't let leaders fight each other for control at the expense of the organization.

    Pros

    Company is shaping advances in the Fintech space. Rapid growth is creating lots of career opportunities. Supportive, team oriented culture - but still focused on results and achievement.

    Cons

    Not a good place if you don't want to work hard or can't deal with lots of change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and keep investing in new technology.

    I worked at Broadridge (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Broadridge set up a bunch of great programs for their interns. One class that I found really useful was the resume building class. Broadridge also required the interns to present to their managers at the end of the internship on something they learned about/helped the company with. This was great experience for presenting. There were also a number of opportunities to network with fellow coworkers.

    Cons

    There aren't too many cons I can think of. One con was that it took a few weeks for everything to get set and organized. Another con was that there wasn't designated cubes for the interns, so it was hard for everyone to work in limited space. Lastly, some interns had a lot more work than others and vise versa.

    I have been working at Broadridge full-time

    Pros

    Competitive total compensation (base salary + bonus) -- highly dependent on your initial negotiations (if the initial negotiation is not good enough, you are screwed)
    Super generous sick leave and short/long term leaves, perfect for those with serious illness
    Long maternal leave with pay
    Occasional candy jar, chewing gum, cookies, sent from the helm of the IT dept

    Cons

    The assignment of projects is based on who has least projects in hand, not matching strength/weakness/preference
    7 levels of management from the IT head to a senior developer -- are you kidding me?
    Too much political games
    All high level managers were parachuted in. No promotion from within
    Lack of visions, only care about short term goal. When finally convinced there's a genuine need to update the technology, they awarded outside contractor firm with millions, but super stingy in hiring replacement for departed/retired colleagues
    Out of whack work/life balance. Constant 65 hours week. People who "only" put 40 hours in their timesheet will be reported
    Shows no loyalty -- constantly seeing long tenured, beloved high rank officers (VP or equivalent) been shown the door
    Too many outsourcing to India. Many times codebase were ruined then handed back to US associates to great dismay. One former Indian associate even reviewed Broadridge is good for freshman/inexperienced start up, and not so good for experienced because of the lower pay etc -- thank you for acknowledging the fact that many associates in India are not experienced -- in fact many good Indian associates left the company immediately after the 3 year contract period to better positions and pay. Go figure

    Advice to Management

    Don't be cheap! Award your most productive employees with recognition/promotion/increase of benefit. They will put more effort in return and make the company more profitable.

    Don't tell your employee that you are going to promote them so they put super extra effort/hours, later tell them the IT department is under re-org so the promotion is buh-bye.

    Invest in your employees. Allocate some budgets in training. The more skillful the employee the better in the product quality. Don't worry about if people get trained they will leave, you can put some retention policy such as pay back the company if leave within 1 year after training.
