Featured Review

Current Employee - Associate

I have been working at BlackRock full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Company that cares for your wellbeing, lots of great benefits

Cons

Size of the company and all the different teams can sometimes make it hard to navigate

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Legal & General full-time

Pros

Great pay and benefits, very smart employees, nice ish offices, treat all staff like adults, forward thinking in terms of agile, working practices and becoming digital, genuine interest in learning... and development and has benefits to society (in particular the UK) at the heart of every decision.

Cons

Still needs to continue its journey to update legacy systems, the various UK offices and divisions sometimes feel siloed as opposed to working together and of course pockets of poor senior management... who can really impact the benefits above (although every company has a small proportion of these types of senior managers). There is also an element of who ever speaks louder and with most conviction will get promoted and do well irrespective of ability, both technical and soft skills.

Advice to Management

Those at the very top of the ladder need to assess their leadership team and genuinely think are they the best for the role, regardless of their CV's and experience.
