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

Pros

-decent benefits, low monthly cost but high deductibles
-good opportunity for a fresh out of college person to get their feet wet and get some years of experience under their belt (before getting a "real" job)

Cons

-wellness programs are a joke
-pay is very low compared to market
-talent is in and then out once they realize what kind of company it is or when they get tired of kissing managements rear-ends
-hr is very incompetent; they cant handle talent searches or even day to day issues (not sure how they walk and talk at the same time)
-management is mostly clueless can't operate on their own thought or use input from others
-management sometimes acts like they are reading from a script and cant function without it
-nothing gets done for a huge company with record profits there are "no resources" to get anything accomplished
-always cutting back and usually at cost of heads

Advice to Management

get a grip on reality! look out the window every now and then because everyone that reports to you is telling you the sun is shining but it's a hurricane out there

    I have been working at Broadridge full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Compensation was right on market for tech jobs but low paying for client service positions when they seem to have to handle the brunt of the issues.
    Employees are good to work with, all pitch in when there is a crisis. Most willing to share knowledge as well on everyday projects.
    Project work goes pretty smoothly, with other departments mostly willing to do their share to get upgrades and new functionality to clients.

    Cons

    Benefits were competitive, however, again, certain pay grades never got any extra bonuses, stock purchase, etc. when they worked as hard as others. Not very rewarding for busting your butt, working late and on weekends.
    Too low paying for client service jobs when it's more than your average customer service position and you need to know about the financial world.
    Some department managers allowed to be constant blockades in getting fixes out for clients. Upper mgmt. doesn't seem to know how to deal with problematic people like this and instead ignore their actions which allows things to progress to worse scenarios.
    All talk about moving to newer technologies but not everyone gets to share in the changes. Some training occurs for tech departments but you are not always allowed to use what you have learned. A waste of company money and department resources if they aren't going to be able to apply what they have learned, even if it's just a prototype. And prototypes shouldn't be automatically attached to a raise/bonus if you're trying it out for the first time.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to deal with problem managers. Allowing them to be a blockade and work against progress under the guise of "making things more accurate for clients" is not a resolution. They just make others jump thru imaginary hoops that are an inefficient waste of time and energy.

    I worked at Broadridge full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Overall a good company with good benefits/compensation levels - there are many good people on the street.

    Cons

    Corporate Finance management team could use some restructuring, everyone there is very comfortable and not always in a good way, it's a very heavy reporting environment with little use of the information.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what's being said and management by fear will never work long term.
