    I have been working at M&G plc part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly and professional people Strong customer focus Good values Changing for the better - it’s an old company but recreating itself in its new identity post demerger. It’s taking time and has been a rough ride but it’s getting there. Flexible, family-friendly working policies Good holidays Good pension scheme, health insurance and other benefits Great career development opportunities

    Cons

    Lots of change Big differences between locations (eg Stirling v Edinburgh office)

    Pros

    Good people who are always willing to help others Flexible hours and not too much overtime Salaries and bonuses are pretty good

    Loss of experienced staff through redundancies has diluted knowledge across the business Focus from execs is very much on the insurance business rather than asset management Constant change can be disruptive
