    I have been working at Rathbone Brothers full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The salary is competitive and the staff benefits are very appealing. They are also good at encouraging personal development.

    Cons

    Toxic work cultures, particularly in bullying and discrimination. Total lack of diversity. Very old fashioned. Lack of support from HR. Top-heavy company. Most employee investment is given to the top earners. Very little support for junior members of staff. Job description not like actual job role. Interview and company website made job and company sound very appealing but this was a pretence of sorts. Seemed like a good move to start with but rapidly declined. Lack of understanding around disabilities.

    I worked at Rathbone Brothers full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great job for social life, which was perfect for my first job straight from uni. Loads of sound people, made some good friends. Work partys were always a laugh. Great building and part of the city to work in. Relatively easy work.

    Cons

    Management ridiculously unprofessional in certain departments. Worked in 3 departments which were fine bar the last one. All going well until I was informed 2 weeks before my contract was up that it would not be getting extended (despite being told you would have 4 weeks notice). Frantically had to look for another job somewhere and ended up being close to a month without a job which was a nightmare trying to pay rent. Pathetic excuses as to why it would not be getting extended ie: something to do with HR. No backbone to tell the truth. Once I finished working there I was informed by an ex colleague who i'm still friends with that my ex boss was going through my emails with ex colleagues who i didnt even speak to in work?! Extremely odd and weird behaviour so avoid if you actually value your privacy. Extremely boring work and if you are on a temp contract you will be brought in to do a specific job so if you want a bit of variety/challenge in day to day work, dont bother. Literally no room for progression from an admin point of view, unless you want to spend years doing the same thing for a shot at a team leader position. If you like office work then its probably a good place to work (if you're in the right team), however if you are looking for something a bit more challenging in life then look for something else.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Rathbone Brothers full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The salary is only slightly below market level

    Cons

    This company is exceptionally dodgy and doesn't employ a diverse workforce. There is an old fashioned way of working at this company and this extends to areas of the business especially the terrible out dated IT systems. This is also the kind of company that people have been working there for either donkeys years or less than a year so this creates a cliquey atmosphere where new employees are treated with distain and contempt. If you are unfortunate enough to start working for this company don't expect any training. You should expect to be scapegoated by bitter, miserable old men who have been hanging on to a role for over 20 years but still don't understand it. This behaviour is especially prevalent within the finance and HR departments.
