    I worked at St. James's Place Wealth Management for less than a year

    Pros

    Good opportunities to learn about the wealth management industry. Friendly culture with staff extremely willing to help and guide interns. Sociable hours with no expectations to stay late to impress. The work was not very strenuous or testing (could be pro or con) on a daily basis, however, I did learn a lot about the industry over the 2 month period.

    Cons

    Quality of the internship varied hugely depending on which department you were placed (investment had many more opportunities and activities outside of the normal day-to-day work). Location is not ideal for everyone. Quite a few of the interns seemed to have family or close family friends within the company although this was a minority. No direct route into grad role, only skip to AC.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that all departments have access to different opportunities such as presentations and meetings with directors rather than just the investment department. The CV and cover letter workshop was just a rehash of information given throughout school, college and university - one-to-one sessions seemed to be much more useful. More effort in placing interns in the correct departments.

    I have been working at St. James's Place Wealth Management for less than a year

    Pros

    Quite and relax environment. I stayed there only for three months. People are good, polite and kind. Customers are as well.

    Cons

    Maybe too relax. Is good if you want to be a financial advisor. You can learn all about financial products but no so many about asset allocation doing by investment board.

    Advice to Management

    It's ok

    I worked at St. James's Place Wealth Management for less than a year

    Pros

    Amazing company with great opportunities to learn more and explore more about the financial field while demonstrating what you can add to financial planning

    Cons

    Very difficult for new hires to become partners and demonstrate to a high wealth clientele that they should be the ones managing their money

    Advice to Management

    Offer better ways for new hires to find and access better clientele bases rather than assuming they can search for these themselves
