    I worked at Albridge Solutions full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Dedicated, hard-working associates in the IT and Business departments. Good collaboration between functional groups. Good annual bonus model and 401K plan.

    Cons

    Low ratio of onshore to offshore staff is not sustainable, onshore teams are being over-worked and stretched. There is a lack of a sound business plan, most of the work done is reactionary not strategic. Firm has lost a lot of senior leadership and intellectual capital over past several years. Replacements from the parent company and competitors have not been able to successfully fill the void. Annual salary... increases are miniscule, well below rate of inflation increases. Work-life balance needs improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Albridge was once a great company to work for but has really fallen off the past several years. Communicate more openly with the staff and have realistic expectations of them. Be more open to flexible working relationships. Improve career growth opportunities for associates.

    I worked at Albridge Solutions full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The location, Central Jersey, is ideal for commuters and recruiting talent that avoids traveling in to Philadelphia or NYC. The starting salary is competitive. The product is certainly one to be proud of, specifically in how it services the financial services industry. Some decent middle managers. The firm is very educational from a technology, financial services and project managdement perspective if you are... willing to learn. There is an opportunity to learn many skills if you take advantage of the roll up your sleeves and get dirty atmosphere. The stability of a large bank and clearing firm as affiliation and parent company creates an overal stable environment for employment.

    Cons

    Middle management is either dead weight or hands tied. The backfill of open positions is a delayed process and one that prohibits backfills on a 1:1 basis. Politics plays a major role in any form of promotion. Salary caps cause position based promotions to be lateral in compensation, unencouraging. Most of those who built Albridge out from the award winning start up it originated as, are long gone, except those... looking for glory and recognition versus a true successful company and product with engaged employees. Many who did not confirm were managed out.

    Advice to Management

    Tough to say. Growing my career there for the amount of time I did, I was able to witness the Albridge of old, and the transformation in to the Albridge of today, an affiliation to Big Brother. If there was any way to dissassociate policies from that of Pershing, it would go a long way. But, with attrition, that's probably a moot point for current associates.
