    I have been working at M&G plc full-time

    Pros

    None what so ever. Terrible.

    Cons

    The merger of Prudential UK with a well established asset manager has seen the historic M&G asset management business taken apart by bitter and inexperienced insurance types, seeing droves of experienced asset management employees leave or be made redundant or sacked on spurious grounds. Morale is non existent and nepotism and back slapping is rife with dreadful and bullying management. Avoid like the plague.

    Immediate team members make work enjoyable and rewarding. Building is modern and flexible working options are great.

    I worked at M&G plc full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people, so much to learn from. Good coffee, very nice office. Good work life balance and work from home.

    Cons

    I have never worked somewhere that has changed so much in such a short period of time. Over the 2.5 years I worked there, M&G went from like a old fashioned asset manager, to a cold corporate soulless place. Unfortunately the Glassdoor ratings seems to corroborate my experience. Massive amounts of change in every part of the business where pretty overwhelming for staff. Friendly and visible top-management disappeared and were replaced with stale old corporate types. Over time the emergence of a few ugly harassment cases against women in the media shed light on fairly seedy behaviour that management seemingly turned a blind eye to. This reinforced an ugly perception I had from our shocking gender pay gap report. I recently read that M&G stood for Mean and Greedy. It's really tragic to see such a nice place decline so precipitously.
