    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!

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

    Pros

    Work-life balance is considerably better than the industry. 16% pension.

    Cons

    Many of the advertised benefits are purely theoretical, with nobody actually getting them. Medical? No. Training? No. You try and get access to these? You'll suddenly be hated by management and at the top of their firing line. There's a weird hybrid of "every man for themselves" culture mixed with an old boys club.
