    I have been working at Hermes Investment Management full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Not a 'stuck in the mud' organisation - management actively seek staff feedback and the business has gotten much better at making changes. Excellent learning and development opportunities (paid study leave, internal events, management development programme, etc). Nice work atmosphere - staff are generally friendly and relaxed. Good gender mix.

    Cons

    Although senior management are generally well liked, some middle management are definitely less popular - make sure you like your boss and your team. The office is definitely in the 'value-end' of the City.

    I worked at Hermes Investment Management full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The friendly culture is just about still there. Good staff entertainment programme. There isn't a culture of excessive working hours, so generally you can have a good work-life balance, although management had said they would like to change this.

    Cons

    Incredibly political - boutique structure means that all areas of the organisation are working against rather than with each other. Some people over-promoted due to cosy relationships with senior management. High turnover of staff. Bonus system heavily in favour of investment staff, with central services staff left with pretty meagre awards. Lack of proper oversight and management wtihin the company - team leaders left to their own devices, resulting in a "do as I say not as I do" culture, and money wasted on expensive white elephant projects and excessive internal entertaining (particularly for the Sales team - fine when they're entertaining potential clients, but not when it's just them).
