    I worked at Schroders full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Career progression and wellbeing takes value and is funded well. Great work-life balance. People are awesome and you become part of the corporate family. Snazzy new offices, good location the city and close to tube station. Global firm, so there's opportunities for secondment or work around the world.

    Cons

    Can't think of any right now or ever!

    Pros

    During this pandemic, Schroders support fo its clients, care for employees, charitable giving and collective action programme, has been amazing.. It’s at times like this that you really see the heart and true culture of a business and I’m so glad I work here.
