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 Management

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!

    Advice to Management

    Get your heads out of your buts

    Pros

    As the company was always evolving my role was also always changing giving me opportunities for development. There was also a real "can do" attitude which combined with a rather flat management structure meant that any idea for an employee, no matter how junior, could get done. However the best thing of working there was the staff. Some fantastic colleagues.

    Cons

    Man used to be a very decentralised company, but as part of cutbacks, everything got centred in London. So if you were not based there, there was limited opportunities for development.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on performance.
