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

    Pros

    Great people to work with, everyone is very friendly. Pretty open to new ideas and new ways of working. Work/life balance is good.

    Cons

    Parking isn't great. Some of the internal systems are a bit old. Seem to outsource a lot of services that could be done in house; having more control and saving money.

    Pros

    St James's Place is a fantastic place to work if you are looking for a smart, professional and entrepreneurial environment to grow your career. The company has managed to retain a family atmosphere even though it has experienced record growth over the last few years which is something most companies struggle to maintain. The company also prides itself on its smart image which is very much reflected in how the... Employees and Partners dress which is 'suited and booted'. The Charitable Foundation and community based projects are a huge part of the culture at SJP and is something all employees can get involved with.

    Cons

    There is limited free parking on site but if you arrive early enough this isn't a problem and all parking charges are reimbursed.

    I have been working at St. James's Place Wealth Management full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great place to harnest your 'inner-entrepreneur', there is no cap on your earnings & you are helping people with goals/ambitions that are meaningful to them - and how to achieve these, in a realistic and sensible way

    Cons

    You have to be prepared to go outside of your comfort zone - you are running your own business. There is so much flexibility and benefits BUT you must hold yourself accountable and think outside of the box

    Advice to Management

    They are simply amazing
