    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!

    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.

    Pros

    Stable company which brings employment security. Good work-life-balance, nice people and great location

    Cons

    Low turnover amongst senior staff = high turnover amongst junior staff. Development and career progression opportunities are limited. The company is a bit slow moving, bearocratic, pace of change is frustrating. Senior staff are very set in their ways and aren't going anywhere.
