    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

    Financial services meets technology, communications and data and analytics. Terrific growth opportunities. Company is on the move, making investments and acquisitions. A great place to be if you want to roll up your sleeves, dive in, and be part of creating a world-class organization.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    Decent pay and good benefits. Can work from at home at times. Many smart people that are willing to help. These would be the old timers.

    Cons

    Long hours and will have to work on many weekends with no overtime. They work you to the bone. They use to give compensation days for the long hours and weekend days, but they no long do that.

    I have been working at Broadridge (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, most of the people are nice. Free ecopass

    Cons

    Vacation time, work-life balance, some departments are 1 or 2 people so I'm not sure how people can take time off

    Advice to Management

    I just started working here and the company is good but unfortunately I walked into a mess . No training, already working 50 hours a week to dig out of the hole because they allowed things to go by the wayside because no one has been in the position for 4 months. This has really left a bad taste in my mouth and as soon as I finish my masters degree I'll be leaving. This is no way for a new employee to start.

    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.

    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.
