    I worked at Northern Trust full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Its probably the best company for a fresher to start his/her career, the culture is very good, the HR plays a very important role in the company which helps any employee from being treated badly.

    Cons

    The work life balance sucks in most of the process, I personally had worked for nearly 22 hours sometimes. The management decisions are not up to the mark. There are internal politics which sometimes prevents a person from growing in the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The promotion policy is worse, they ask the candidate to apply for a position but the results are not based upon the interview that the candidate goes through, its pre-decided as to who is getting that position.

    Pros

    Work Culture is good.
    Lot to learn or else you can do the work and get over with it, depends on the approach, both are acceptable.
    Good place if you are joining as a manager.

    Cons

    Pay is bad and so is the annual hike and bonus.
    Politics is usual and managers keep playing with people to find new ways to prove something or the other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can look into compensation.

    Pros

    easy entrance n 3 weeks of leaves

    Cons

    pathetic level of growth,less work, less challenge less growth
    pathetic women supporting policy resembles like a very gender biased place where who expects women for taking rest and dominating men using the company's policies given to respect and protect them..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    kindly reduce the amount of internal poilitics in teams and recognise the right one who works hard and not the 1 who impresses boss
