      I worked at Seven Investment Management full-time

      Pros

      There is nothing positive to say about this company

      Cons

      Seven IM pride itself on culture...the culture I experienced was one of lies, blame, severe incompetence and 'if you like to party you'll be fine'. ​​ Micro-management is rife. HR is incompetent, dishonest and completely unprofessional - I'd actually go so far as to say corrupt. Brand image is everything to this company but this comes at the detriment of staff working conditions. Policies (especially so called 'family-friendly'...

      Pros

      7IM is a great company where you feel valued and rewarded for hard work. It has a brilliant culture and you feel like a big family. The Management Committee are all very approachable and care about you. I would recommend the firm to anybody who is looking for a company where hard work is noticed and rewarded.

      Cons

      I actually can't think of any cons. It is a company full of good people.

      Advice to Management

      Stay being approachable and doing what you do.

      Pros

      Good friendly working culture. There are some key people in the business that really make it worthwhile for collaboration, growth, learning and making a difference.

      Cons

      Old fashioned traditions No dress down days No flexible working options 0% black senior management 0% black partner members Maybe 1% Asian partner members Rushed decisions have led to poor operation functionality and processes.

      Advice to Management

      Buy cheap buy twice! Keep the good talented hard working people happy and you will take more steps forward than backwards.

      I have been working at Seven Investment Management full-time

      Pros

      Whilst it has grown from a small to a medium-sized company over a relatively short time period, 7IM has retained the culture which has made it successful. You feel that your contribution matters and this is validated by the fact that the senior management take an active interest in you, regardless of your position or tenure. With the trust and autonomy given to you, you are expected to work hard, although you are...

      Cons

      None that I can think of. The job can be challenging and accountability comes hand in hand with that trust that is put in you, but I see this as positive.

      Advice to Management

      Continue to retain the collaborative, 'open-door' approach and keep the culture as the business grows.

      Pros

      Seven Investment Management has accomplished the rarest of feats, by fostering an environment which is both driven and dynamic, yet where the people are a pleasure to work with. All credit must be given to senior management who actively set the tone and remain accessible and approachable to all employees. This is particularly inspiring for young people at the start of their careers, but even for those with plenty of experience...

      Cons

      Seven Investment Management continues to grow and as it expands, it may become difficult to maintain the current culture.

      Advice to Management

      Continue to do what you're doing, but ensure that alongside growth and expansion, measures are taken to protect the culture.

      Pros

      - good working environment - nice culture but this needs to be maintained as it grows - good interaction with management - opportunities for internal promotion - good social side

      Cons

      - gender pay gap...it's true....very true - HR dep. aren't very trustworthy and often don't deal with situations well. Would never speak to them if I wanted something to stay confidential.
