    I have been working at Northern Trust full-time

    Pros

    Competitive pay, great benefits, and surrounded by professional and enjoyable colleagues. The open floor plan leads to great collaboration and sharing of ideas for bettering the experience for internal and external clients. I've not worked for a company that promotes community involvement and engagement as much as Northern.

    Cons

    As a new employee, I have yet to experience any cons of working at Northern.

    I have been working at Northern Trust full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance. Good people to work with.

    Cons

    Most jobs are being taken by contractors. You should worry if you start to make to much money they will eliminate your job, unless you are one of the many un-necessary layers of senior management the you are golden.

    Advice to Management

    Stop outsourcing american jobs to foreign countries. If people don't have jobs no one will have money to put into your bank.

    I have been working at Northern Trust full-time

    Pros

    Benefits such as medical, dental, vision and employer contribution to 401k are all positive for an employee.

    Cons

    Downside to any company is subjective to the employee’s perception. I would suggest if one is interested in seeking employment with this company they should do so for their own reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure the work environment is truly a safe zone for staff to share their experiences.
