    "An excellent, forward looking company"

    5.0
    Current Employee - Investment Manager in Gatwick, England

    I have been working at Brewin Dolphin full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I am proud to work for Brewin, which I feel is a well managed and forward looking organisation run in line with its corporate values. As well as benefitting from both national scale and local presence the firm's commitment to people, both staff and clients, has been shown time and time again especially during the Covid pandemic. The number of 'long servers' is evidence of this.

    Cons

    No obvious negatives to mention.

    I have been working at Brewin Dolphin full-time

    Pros

    I really enjoy working at Brewin Dolphin as I feel part of creating something, not just an employee. My actions and my opinions matter, I am listened to, supported and encouraged. It's a great company with big aspirations and the right leadership.

    Cons

    Not everything works all the time as perfectly as you would want but I think that is true of any busienss. Brewin Dolphin try and learn from mistakes rather than try again and hope for a different outcome.
