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!

    I have been working at Man Group full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting work.
    Some excellent people still left

    Cons

    Poor bonuses have led to a lot of the best quants departing.
    Atmosphere is poor and there is high turnover
    Too top heavy in terms of management with most people in management roles being relatively weak.
    Core technology team are relatively disconnected from the business and develop irrelevant things while breaking important things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stem the exodus of employees by bringing pay up slightly.
    Eliminate 'core' technology team and focus solely on integrated technologists.

    Doesn't Recommend
