Bank Debt Senior Consultant (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 17, 2018
I learned a lot on the Hedge Fund Services team, the job was very fast paced and your clients expected a lot out of you. I learned a very niche security type and was mentored by a great boss.

Could Improve on Consistent Messaging Amongst Leadership
Senior Imaging Analyst (Current Employee) –  Tempe, AZJuly 16, 2018
Northern Trust has a great foundation as far as providing tools that promote inclusion and employee participation, but the management team cannot seem to get on the same page which hurts the Company. Turnover is high due to low moral, and out-dated business systems. Northern Trust should work harder to improve these areas to remain competitive within the job market.
Pros
Business Resource Councils that allow for networking and professional development.
Cons
Management team does not appear to be on the same page with the direction the Company is going.

Good place to work
Financial Reporting Analyst (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJune 20, 2018
Northern Trust is a good place to work. They can definitely improve on training staff properly and holding team leaders more accountable for supporting their staff, but overall management is great. Lots of flexibility.

not good management
Senior Wealth Strategist (Current Employee) –  Orange County, CAJune 16, 2018
an old management style that tends to micro manage everything you do. Not a place for everyone. I would suggest if you can start there and then leave once established it would be a good company to work for as there training is good.
Pros
company name
Cons

Pros
Stability, profitability

Too many meetings

Slowly evolving company
Fund Accounting Analyst (Current Employee) –  Tempe, AZJune 9, 2018
Information technology is archaic at this company. Don't expect to have efficient systems to support your work. Management seems to delay promotions by any means necessary.

good work life balance with job security
Trader (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 30, 2018
Flexible hours for most with a few fringe benefits. An ability to blaze your own trail. Some positions require availability during off hours, but that is expected in a global custody firm.

"HRSC" Analyst (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 8, 2018
Good place to work for younger people starting out their career. The environment generally is very formal and the employees are respected.

Unfortunately, I did not see any viable areas for older workers.
