    I have been working at M&G full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Fantastic culture, the M&G family really care about everyone.

    Cons

    Many employees stay a long time which can be considered positive but also negative due to not much promotion opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Management hierarchy is flat and almost all staff are completely approachable.

    I have been working at M&G full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    New office, casual dress and Agile working within the office and at home. Pleasant colleagues. Approachable management for work queries. Aside from a pretty low morale, the culture is nice and has developed quickly, a bigger push on bringing the 'whole you' to work with culture and gender groups being set up.

    Cons

    Uncertainty - redundancies and demerger, feels like we're being packaged up to be sold off. Changes in title and more work (a promotion) without being compensated; not uncommon here. Diligent staff can be taken for granted and pick up slack for other staff for the long term; leads to an increase in the number of staff being signed off with stress due to high workload and a lower morale. Communication on important issues...

    Advice to Management

    Show the hard working and valuable staff that they are truly valued and reflect this in their wages. Listen to concerns and most importantly...communicate! The rumour mill is a dangerous thing.

    I have been working at M&G full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Still some great people working there. Institutional businesses are flourishing

    Cons

    Lots of cost driven restructuring driven by consultants and senior mgt without consulting the relevant mgt teams. Clearly being packaged up for resale post the Pru demerger.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time listening to the mgt teams rather than external consultants. Lots of talk of wanting to be the best loved financial services firm which contrasts with the current drive to cut costs without considering the impact on the end client.

    I have been working at M&G full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Work/life balance (for most people) - it's a way to work in the City without crippling long hours. There's hardly anyone left at 6pm. People generally very nice. More diverse than you might expect - definitely not pale male and stale. Not as hugely influential as it perhaps used to be, but still well known and well respected by customers and competitors. Bits of it are doing some interesting new things - there...

    Cons

    Senior leadership does not set a good example in terms of taking difficult or bold decisions. Linked to that (lack of self confidence?) there's massive over use of consultants and contractors and it seems to be getting worse. Can't take a decision? Get a consultant in to do a very average piece of work and just go with that. Need resource? Get all your mates in as contractors. Sometimes for *years*. Meanwhile...
