    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?

    Cons

    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.

    I have been working at Broadridge full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Several well trained and educated strategist, FinOp and Ops Personnel who truly strive to satisfy business need and marketplace solution gaps

    Cons

    Technology leaders are weak with little to no experience in the industries they support which creates friction between their business partners and executive leadership cannot find effective ways and programs to bridge the gaps.

    Advice to Management

    Consultants are required to independently assess the cultural gaps and make recommendation without the respective teams getting in front of the outcome. There are too many decisions made at the "friend" level which then makes an objective decision impossible. Tech program and strategy needs a serious overhaul.

    I worked at Broadridge full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Management in Edgewood has a great vision and is executing a sound fiscal plan. I highly reccomend the company, just not the Andover division, it feels very much like the end is near for that group.

    Cons

    Andover division is lost, no vision, no product(s), no focus on clients needs or understanding of their usage of the Broadridge products.

    Advice to Management

    NY management needs to get rid of the Andover team, fold the division into a different arm that has strong leadership, an understanding of financial services, building a plan and executing it. Otherwise the promising Andover facility will just slow erode until the ultimate RIF. It's not the people, it's not the technology, it's the weak management.
