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

    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.

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

    Pros

    The people here tend to be nice. As an engineer, I have been able to work with modern technologies and agile methodologies.

    Cons

    Not much communication from management. Lots of reorgs up above so we never even know who we are reporting to much of the time. Sometimes people are there one day and gone the next.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better and let us know what is going on. We can handle it. The only communication we get is that they have created a new VP or CTO of some global group at corporate.

    Pros

    Competitive salary, decent work-life balance

    Cons

    Job security is pretty much non-existent now. The push to offshore more and more is ramping up like never before. No matter what your position, at least in the JC office, eventually your job will ho to Hyderabad. Because if this, promotions are also few and far between. Why promo someone you plan on terming in 18 months?

    Work Length - January 2015 to May 2015

    Ineffective management and hostile working environment:

    The nature of working for Broadridge is volatile by design. During the "proxy season," which takes place between January and May, temporary workers will be hired to assist the full-time staff with their responsibilities. Despite this, work is overflowing during this time due to a lack of foresight by those responsible for hiring. During your interview you will be hired based solely on your ability to proofread documents, there isn't even a test of any sort. If your resume has an English or writing degree on it then they will most likely accept you immediately. Getting a job at Broadridge is not the difficult part, it is keeping the desire to want the job that is.

    Like many places, Broadridge management has a problem when it comes to separating personal with professional. As a contracted, temporary worker you will bear witness to loud chatter, inappropriate sexual relationships and disruptive practices that bring the personal lives of each co-worker and manager to the professional setting. You will later witness management act on these established bonds with the workers under them, giving special treatment to those they tend to get along with out of office hours.

    Blame is often placed on the most vulnerable workers in the department, in this case it was the temporary, contracted workers. Effort is not made to improve productivity, mistakes are bottled up for weeks at a time and dispensed all at once during group meetings where accountability falls on a team (such as "the temps") and not on any one person. This creates an environment where those that purposely do not do their work are on the same level with those that put in a level of extra effort to make up for that decline. Workers are unable to improve their own methods and practices because criticism is rarely constructive.

    Other complaints:

    As many as 7 Temporary workers are stuffed into a small, non-ventilated room where heat quickly builds up due to the use of computers. To remedy this, a small fan may be given to the workers to share among themselves.

    As a worker you will receive conflicting instructions from managers in different areas. This can lead to confusion and a lack in productivity.

    Creation of documents to be proofread are often constructed first by workers who cannot speak fluent English (some from India and some on-site), which lowers productivity for the entire department.
