    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

    Nice co-workers, casual dress code, office location

    Cons

    Upper management does not treat employees very well. They are more concerned about cutting costs to make sure they get their bonuses.
    Virtually impossible to get a promotion. They would rather hire people with no experience, so they can pay them less, and let the experienced people go. Everyone is expendable.

    Pros

    Flexible work arrangements available that lets you work from home or remote locations when necessary with supervisor approval.

    Cons

    Major turnover with associates leaving due to lack of recognition, poor work/life balance and below market salaries. Benefits are reduced year after year with rate increases and more out of pocket costs. Management plays favoritism with promotions and merit increases. Hard working and dedicated associates are overlooked and held back with promotions going to those who are buddy-buddy with management. Low morale amongst associates and lack of knowledge being retained within the group as associates are getting fed up with the politics of the group and leaving for better opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Management should really be looked at for this behavior and begin rewarding those who actually deserve it.

    Pros

    Pay is pretty good
    Predictable schedule

    Cons

    Zero team atmosphere. Everyone's there for themselves.

    Office Space type personalities. People live to work here.
    No upward mobility and horrible 401K matching

    Advice to Management

    Engage with your employees and provide more fun than "Last Friday Cooke Day"...:/

    I worked at Broadridge full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best Pro I can say, is I will never refer this company to anyone...if you want to sell your soul, then this is the place for you. Pros of having a turnstile of employees is what makes this company still prevail.

    Cons

    I can't list the amount of cons. Way too many. Not speaking as a former employee only. But speaking the truth! Lack of career opportunities, low wage, horrible benefits, and poor work/life balance to name a few. The "superiors" expect you to do the work of 5 people and when you do accomplish that. Now they asking you to do work for 10 people. While giving you zero raises and cheap incentives. But I won't go into detail how great management has it- and- while they shed money from lower employees, it goes into their pockets.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring managers with zero experience in the industry they work for. Learn to be truthful and respectful to your own employees. Stop covering up the truth with false hope to your workforce. Stop favoritism! Stop nepotism! If you want better morals in your department look within yourself for the real truth.

    Pros

    Long Island location is centrally located and next to the LIRR which makes the location convenient for those traveling in all directions.

    Cons

    So many to mention
    Antiquated system
    Upper Management clueless to how the Manager manage
    Cliquish
    Favoritism to family members, close friends

    Advice to Management

    Have regular skip a level discussions/meetings. Talk to those actually making things happen...supervisors, associates to understand their challenges and how they may be being treated.

    I have been working at Broadridge full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    > Offers temporary jobs (e.g. first week of the month, sometimes more at quarter-end) for people looking to supplement ongoing income - from regular full-time employment or fixed income

    Cons

    > Constantly training temporary hires who don't stay.
    > Pay is not very good.
    > Constant productivity improvements imjplemented - meaning more work for the same pay.
    > Lots of overtime - cannot have a life the first 2 weeks of the month.

    Advice to Management

    Pay definitely needs to be improved in alignment with additional responsibilities added over past 2 years.

    Pros

    Good benefits and 401K matching

    Cons

    Hires only people at the top and entry level college graduates for jobs in the U.S. The remaining 65-75% of jobs are outsourced overseas -- after people are forced to teach their jobs to overseas staff, of course.

    Advice to Management

    Be different. Go back to being American and stop selling out.

    Pros

    Not really any pros to mention. I guess there are a few nice people who work there but that is about it. Not a good place. It is miserable with terrible management.

    Cons

    The company is on a path to disaster as innovative tech companies will take them out. The worst management ever seen. Not strategic in any way. It's like a finance organization from the 1940"s. Senior management is a joke. People here would not remotely survive in the real world. People
    Get promoted because of who they know not based upon your talent. Worst place I've ever been. Leaving soon.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new senior finance team. The place is a mess and no one knows what they are doing. Wake up and realize that the team is not strategic and the place is a joke. Would give them a 0 if I could.
