Pros

Pershing is a great place to work, since it's a susidiary of BNYM there are opportunities within Pershing, and the parent company to really advance one's career
work environment is one of the best out there. They care about life work balance. They invest in technology as far as video conferencing, presentations.

Cons

information sharing does not happen as often as you would like it's who you know
Hard to find out which department handles what, a lot of passing off of responsibility.
Their internal technical support is very poor. There is no follow up from the tech support department on issues. They have a lot of programs on their network that don't talk to each other sometimes associates systems crash daily.

Advice to Management

Please make promotions and bonus calculations more transparent, it seems like a mystery to most associates. Keep up the great communication via webcast and onsite meetings.

    Pros

    Decent Benefits
    You can dump all your work on others if you know the right people
    You can sleepwalk through your day
    Easy to blame others when you fail and have it stick on them

    Cons

    Senior management does nothing but cut costs
    Operations all outsourcing to India
    Best practices are cheapest practices
    Technology will say "no" to everything

    Advice to Management

    If you really are serious about cutting expenses, how about focusing on the highest-paid senior management overlap? 3 presidents...do we really need that many to play a round of golf?

    Pros

    The vacation plan and benefits are very good. If you are willing to work very hard you will be recognized. The location right off of the Grove Street path station has improved tremendously over the last 10 years.

    Cons

    If you don't live in the immediate area, the commute into Jersey City is horrible. Most people work a lot of overtime, including nights and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to drastically change the status quo.
