    I have been working at St. James's Place Wealth Management full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Huge amount of knowledge, infrastructure and e-learning to increase your client facing knowledge, prestige firm, unlimited earning potential if you have the right network to support it. Pays to be self reliant and highly motivated.

    Cons

    Poor support in the early stages.

I was largely left to fend for myself and learn an FCA accredited role completely on my own via trial and error. Admin is a farce - you will use hundreds and hundreds of pounds of printer ink in...

    Advice to Management

    Would be nice if management would cascade new advice enquiries to your junior wealth managers and offer orphan clients to new advisors rather than focusing on new advisors tapping into their friends and family network to becoming wealth clients.

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

    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.
