I have been working at Northern Trust full-time for less than a year

Pros

Good reputation in the industry, solid and stable business that has been around forever, overall high net worth clientele due to nature of business (private banking)

Cons

Very conservative in all aspects (not necessarily bad), technology is dated and systems need updating, change is slow to happen

    I have been working at Northern Trust full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Stability. Enjoy your job because it won't change for thirty years.

    Cons

    There is no chance for advancement and rampant nepotism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within. Managers have little to no understanding of what their employees are doing day to day.

    I worked at Northern Trust full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Overall good work life balance, nice people and steady company.

    Cons

    The people are hard working and really put forth an effort. The company is riddled by lifers that are hanging around and resist modernity. Not innovative, tradition takes president over common since.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inject new ideas, trust the experts you hire and embrace change. And for a lot of lifers retire and enjoy your stock.
