    I worked at Pershing full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, decent hours and better salary than most companies. There are decent and hard working employees there. Volunteer program is awesome, keep up the good work with that part.

    Cons

    No advancement, lots of bureaucracy. If you do not fit into their clique you will go nowhere. There are people in management that do not even have a degree, but continue to get rewarded for kissing A--.

    Advice to Management

    Retain your valuable employees.

    Pros

    Some of the nicest people I have ever worked with. They were funny, bright and always working.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic culture. I do not recommend for people who want to work in an environment geared toward advancement and career growth.

    Advice to Management

    I do not presume to give anyone advice only to say that when I was an employee, morale was low as far as career advancement.

    Pros

    Great benefits package, includes employee stock purchase, 401k matched by employer, vacation time and sick time benefits. Short term and long term disability. Management is flexible and understanding. Certain dept can work from home a couple of days, too bad mine doesn't!

    Cons

    Might be hard to move up because the management tends to be people that have been there for years with no intentions of leaving, so that leaves you"waiting" on an open management opening. Some departments have long hours and include some weekends. It all depends what department you work for.

    Advice to Management

    Engage your employees more, help them grow and mentor them.

    Department is pretty stable and there is no fear of layoffs unlike some other areas. Flexibility to work from home on occasions is a plus.

    Listen to the employees. Provide competitive salary. Find ways to motivate.
