Pros

Pershing's work life balance is decent. Management overall is very supportive. There are lots of nice and smart people to work with.

Cons

There aren't many opportunities opening up. Most of the positions that do open up are being transferred over to Lake Mary, Florida.

    Pros

    The only reason to work at Pershing is if you don’t want any responsibilities and do not care about advancement or receiving a fair market salary. However the people are nice even though 90% of them are miserable working there except for the ones that are cheerleaders for their managers in the hopes of getting a scrap of recognition.

    Cons

    Truly too many to list...
    No documentation on how to do anything
    Reliance on their vendors to be their experts, no in-house expertise on anything
    Too many process that lead to nowhere
    Circular authorization. Example the person submitting the request eventually has to re-submit why they wanted in the first place. In some case they have to be the final approver of their own request.
    Most departments don't actually understand their job function, or why they do what they do.
    Frustrating. Most employees are frustrated and they end up not caring about their work which leads to poor work.
    The adage of "It's not what you know, its' who you know" is the only way to get recognized
    They pay new hires more than the managers who manage them. Has lead to make employees quitting.

    Advice to Management

    Listen..its that simple. Get rid of anyone who's been there more than 10 years as they are part of the problem, could mean your including yourself. Retain the people that can make a difference and empower them to do so. And finally listen again, if you do this the company could become one of the best places to work instead of the worst.
