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

    Pros

    At one time, I was made to feel like I wasn't a number. I want to continue to believe this but not sure.

    Cons

    Things are changing drastically in a short amount of time which leaves room for errors and a lot of new processes to learn in a short amount of time.

    Raises are less then 1% annually and marketable job ranges are not revealed and won't be revealed.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees for loyalty and performance.

    I worked at Northern Trust full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked for TNT for over 15 years and developed many friendships. Most of the people there are great people.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about employees any more. They only care about shareholders. Benefits have been greatly reduced in the last 10 years. Everything is about cutting expenses, cutting expenses, cutting expenses. A lot of dead weight at Northern. If you want a job where you don't want accountablility then Northern is the place. The good workers have to make up for the dead wieght and get burnt out.

    Advice to Management

    Think about your people, not about yourself and shareholders. Your people are the ones that are the company. Make people accountable.
