    I have been working at Holborn Assets full-time

    Pros

    I have been working with Holborn Assets for the best part of a year now and can safely say it's a great company to be involved in. They offer great career progression and support with developing staff when it comes to qualifications that are on offer. I have found that the senior management team here at Holborn are extremely supportive and are always available to offer their experience within the industry.

    Cons

    Working with Holborn Assets hasn't given me any bad experiences and I can't fault the way the company is structured and the staff within it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking after the staff within the company and offering the already excellent opportunities and progression that you give current employees.

    I worked at Holborn Assets part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly company with a nice team of people who were happy to help me with career advice and share. They pay the best rates in the market and is a rapidly growing company (this was the Dubai office) lots of events outside the office that are all paid for by Holborn Assets which are not mandatory but lots of people get involved

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of

    I worked at Holborn Assets full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Good work environment
    - Nice cafeteria
    - Free coffee and tea

    Cons

    - Politics by admin staff who has been working there longer, causing gossip and badmouthing people

    - Lots of 'immediate supervisor' where you get orders from

    Advice to Management

    Review your salary range for people who are working for you and don't listen to all side story rather do your own investigation.

    Pros

    you can go up if you can make the boss laugh and if you have a doggy mouth

    Cons

    It's better always check the google reviews. In Holborn there are people who are trying to sell company secrets to other companies. To IBLF and Stock port associates. Some people know this but stay silent. 2-3 tamil people in a 3rd world country (which has their call center) tried to do this but never know what has happened. Even though they cannot, they will not stop trying it. So be careful when u invest. Your personal and financial information could be shared everywhere soon. Poor James!!.

    Advice to Management

    People who never listen, learn by the lesson

    Pros

    Main facilities in the office are commendable.

    Cons

    No HR dept. or employee policy/blue book. Therefore Some employees act as they want.
    No proper manual of operations.

    Advice to Management

    Good if they can invest on HR and proper training department for the employees with a blue book.
