    I worked at St. James's Place Wealth Management full-time

    Pros

    Training workshops are brilliant. Systems and processes are good and the business has a fairly good reputation in the market place. SJP certainly looks and feels the part.

    Cons

    Before you're in, you're promised that SJP is everything you could hope for with endless support, good earnings potential and innovative thinking. When you're in, you're just another number, barely contacted by your so called manager and you have no idea whether what you're doing is right or wrong. If you read other partner reviews, most elude to broken promises. Support is very much aimed at the people who have been in SJP for long periods and have larger clients banks (who don't want the support) and new people are ignored and told to 'sponsor bowls clubs'. Really underwhelming .

    I worked at St. James's Place Wealth Management full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    * The proposition really works for clients, and solves a lot of problems your competitors cant. Happy clients means long-term clients, which is great for everyone. * Real wealth management solutions, not "investment sales". Exceptional technical support and development. This means you can take the role as a consultant, and be far more valuable to clients than many of your competitors. * A business model, that works for clients, you and the company, in terms of renumeration and other aspects. * Support to get off the ground, so that you can focus on opening quality relationships, not closing deals. * All the usual perks of running your own business, in terms of freedom, flexibility and income * I was able to do a Business Sale and Purchase when I wanted to leave Asia for personal reasons. This was a massive benefit for me, and also worked for clients and the colleague that took over. They have the succession model figured out for everyone, and that is very important in this business. Overall, coming from the typical "offshore advisory" firm, the kind of which you have an endless array of in Asia, moving to SJP was a transformative upgrade, and I couldn't be happier with how it all worked out, in every single way. It is by far the best job decision I ever made.

    Cons

    * SJP Asia is new vs SJP UK, and as an Asia Partner you find yourself wishing that we had as developed of a proposition as in the UK. * When you work for SJP, you get how massively different the company is from much of the competition. However, prospective clients might not know this until they sit down with both.

    Pros

    None, some staff are nice. Offices nicely furnished. Recruitment process feels nice as invite you to good locations for lunches etc.

    Cons

    Pressure, broken promises, poor management. Pay for everything include paper, business cards, everything. Treat new staff like crap. And management say what ever to keep you happy but it’s all lies.
