I worked at Man Group full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good atmosphere, mostly friendly co-operative teams, interesting projects, feeling that the company cares about its staff, e.g. flexible benefits, decent bonuses, free lunches. Starting to accept flexible working/tele-working.

Cons

Taken on more staff than it should have over the last few years, so lost some of the enjoyable "hedge fund" feel, and now having to make severe cut-backs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't get rid of all the staff that made the company a success in the first place, and try to keep the hedge fund culture rather than aiming to be an investment bank!

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial spirit, diversity of opportunity, willingness to support internal moves, occasionally interesting culture. A lot of fun, bright people. If you're in the right part of the business and friends with the right people can be very lucrative. Lunch budget is provided, although significantly less than it once was.

    Cons

    Highly political environment, senior management operate a very hedge fund approach which doesn't mix so well with a public company, very short term view, long working hours (in certain roles). Extreme discrepancies in terms of pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either take the company private and run it as a diversified hedge fund group, or run it as a publicly listed asset management business. Also worth removing a layer of senior management cronies who do nothing other than collect a huge salary.
