I worked hard at Northern Trust but found the job extremely stressful. The tension at work was palpable. They gave good training but essentially I felt like a number not a person.

Its a good company to work for. Being a financial institution and one of the oldest in US, the pay is good. They are trying to renovate their technology stack. But jobs are being off-shored.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Old and disconnected management.

Enjoyed my time at Northern Trust. Helped develop me as a professional. If I did not feel called to education, I would still be employed there. Company is invested in employee engagement.

Jersey City location has the worse Management in the Trust & Investments department. The manager received that position because of favoritism and politics. He has no courage. The manager above him was the Queen of playing favoritism. If you don't have a close relationship with her, she will not promote or even consider you for a promotion. There is no room for growth or opportunities at this location.
Pros
Free Lunches
Cons
Lack of growth and opportunities / Unstructured Training

I loved working there when we started but towards the end it wasn't about people it was about numbers. Highmark was the best CEO and knew everyone by name and would engage with the staff. But the one that repleced him was more about numbers than people and that is when it wasn't a family anymore.

My 1st day at Tempe NT impressed me with "talk" of workplace culture. I was so excited to make a difference, excited to learn, grow and excel in this new position (alternative investments)! I have an extensive financial background in traditional investments. Sadly though, training is nonexistent. You're expected to ask questing or for help. When you ask for help or have questions, you're treated like scum of the earth for not knowing something you were never trained on-literally yelled at (so that your team can hear you being torn to shreds). Additionally, mgmt overlooks local (Tempe) talent and instead brings subpar folks (with no leadership skills) from Chicago to fill leadership rolls-this will be their demise.
Pros
Partners i worked with
Cons
Management & training

Very nice culture! There is a work-life balance. The people are nice. There are awards and recognitions. The benefits and salaries are better compared to some other banks.

An ok employer for the most part. They managed to avoid the cycle of making large numbers of people redundant then having to recruit again a year later that seemed to affect many US firms. However, now virtually all operational and client service functions have been offshored out of London.

Northern Trust is a good organisation for experienced employees.
The work offered is stressful and work life balance is a little low.

The salary offered is better than competitors.
