    I have been working at St. James's Place Wealth Management full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Dynamic organisation, still growing rapidly so lots of opportunities. Posh Christmas Parties and Company events, if that's your thing!

    Cons

    Outdated culture with little understanding of equality and diversity. 20+ years behind most other FTSE 100 companies in this respect. Inflexible working arrangements make it hard for anyone with childcare/caring responsibilities to get on in the company. Chronic under investment in Head Office IT systems and Head Office staff in general, who are less valued than those in the field. Poor wages in comparison with other...

    Advice to Management

    Value Head Office staff and pay better wages, so that you can recruit people of the right calibre. Invest properly in Training and Development, in particular professional courses. If you promise extra resource, please deliver it, rather than working your existing staff into the ground.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, everyone is very friendly. Pretty open to new ideas and new ways of working. Work/life balance is good.

    Cons

    Parking isn't great. Some of the internal systems are a bit old. Seem to outsource a lot of services that could be done in house; having more control and saving money.
