    Pros

    Staff Canteen Nice People Stock Option plan Sports and social committee dynamic

    Cons

    Bonus have been divided by 2 since the merger are now under average. Too much political : rewards and career progression are based on who you know rather than how much you contribute to the business. Work life balance is uneven among teams some team leave at 5pm on the dot while others especially in IT /middle office/risk management stay up to 7pm on some days. Lack of senior management : have been missing 3... global heads for 1 year.

    Advice to Management

    Foster more career progression over the business and make sure that good people are rewarded more than average people.

    Pros

    Laid back, collegiate atmosphere with easy going people and quite a flat structure. Casual dress code and global reach with the new Janus merger

    Cons

    Legacy systems, below market average pay, no real interaction between teams, culture of responsibility to embedded well enough throughout the business.

    Advice to Management

    Pay staff more, hire better staff, review procedures from a strategic growth perspective rather than a box ticking compliance perspective, don't make decision based on politics

    I worked at Henderson Global Investors

    Pros

    Good building, offers good selection of share schemes. At lower levels there are some really good people, which makes daily working life good because these people can understand and work with each other.

    Cons

    persistently lacked a culture of internal growth and investing in staff. The infrastructure of the business outside front office cannot support the global functions of the company - too much control is focussed on London, which puts a lot of strain on individuals. Communication and interaction between departments across business has always been culturally poor. Too much focus placed on middle management, who some... have "just got a good deal", which stunts progression in lower ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Scrutinise middle management performance by using employee surveys, be more forward thinking and mark performance of them by monitoring how they use all levels of third staff to their strengths, investing in them all.
