    Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?

      Supportive in policies but not jobs

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      People are v friendly New office with great facilities New policies worklife balance is excellent

      Cons

      Caring element of the organisation has disappeared somewhat. People are siphoned off into roles without discussion and not in line with their career progression. Senior management seem relieved when people resign as it means they can fill their role elsewhere.

      Invest in staff

      May 9, 2019 - Anonymous Employee in London, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      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 is lacking (business change, staffing, Gender Pay, where the company is going) Lack of encouragement for career progression or internal moves. The company previously felt more like a family but many M&G old faces are leaving/being made redundant so I fear the knowledge within the company is lessening as time goes on, with more contractors coming in.

      Not a positive experience , false promises

      Pros

      Like my ex colleague said, the only good thing about working in M&G Compliance is the free tea and coffee. Some friendly people and relaxed atmosphere.

      Cons

      No career progression, not very nice or knowledgable managers. They hire too many new entrants, as they are cheap. New entrants love M&G as it gives them a fantastic start. However, teaching them can be stressful. Trying to train 4 inexperienced people at once is both challenging and unfair to them and me.
