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!

    I have been working at Schroders full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits. Company culture is less bureaucratic than others. Member of staff are genuinely helpful and care about your career progression. A lot of ways to learn and progress through their employee platforms.

    Cons

    Can get too absorbed within your team, without looking outwards to other departments to get more of a holistic view of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Carry on the good work!

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

    Pros

    The general staff are lovely. At present there are no office politics which makes for a great environment. Beautiful setting for an office

    Cons

    Although beautiful setting, office out of town so not convenient for lunchtime shopping if needed. Management are Not people managers. They have absolutely no idea how to motivate or encourage. Very economical with the truth at interview over hrs and evening working. No plan, chaotic management lots of knee jerk reactions

    Advice to Management

    Be honest at interview with realistic expectations over hrs. Line managers really need to understand what their teams roles are. Remember your people, who are amazing, are your greatest asset. Without them the company is nothing, you can't afford to lose them.
