    I worked at Northern Trust full-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good teammate environment, learned a wealth of information about the business, company is business risk oriented.

    Cons

    Difficult to understand the internal politics of past Citadel Management, team worked independently on projects so sharing knowledge was difficult to do - sometimes it felt like being on an island.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure teams collaborate on ideas and best practices, take advice from upper management and see the benefits of taking ownership in their work product.

    I have been working at Northern Trust full-time

    Pros

    Partners are intelligent, friendly and cooperative. In general, there is a positive, collegial work environment that promotes discussion of problems and solutions.

    Cons

    As with any large organization, it is difficult to move forward with new ideas and innovations. Compensation varies from group to group for similar job functions.

    Advice to Management

    Providing a clear, "big picture" organization structure across the company and not just individual groups would make for a more cohesive work force.
