    Pros

    The name might get you a decent job elsewhere.

    Cons

    Compensation: If you pay peanuts you get a bunch of monkeys. Processes, management radical overhaul, limited career and salary growth opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more into employees and pay them a market wage at least.

    I worked at Legal & General Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nice open plan offices. Good location with some on site parking. Average salary for new starters compared to similar local companies.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, constant change, continuous redundancies over last 5 years. No internal progression. No training for management. Poor rates of bonus / pay rise verse success of company. Unclear expectations of staff. New staff being recruited but lack of honesty about job role means unhappy recruits, who are receiving below standard training for such a big, well known company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are loosing staff and have a severe lack of morale at your Hove offices caused by unclear, unfriendly management. A real shame and a total change over the last 4 years and something that is being ignored. It might be worth coming down for yourselves and asking the staff on the floor what it's really like to work there.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere with extra curricular activity such as charity work, running and cake baking.

    Cons

    HR advertises the job as perm and then changes it after the interview.

    Working hours discriminated against woman with out children. Expecting them to work longer than those with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lots of expensive grade 7's that don't do much except network well and keep in with their "friends". They look after number one.

  5. Slowness of organisation to react & lack of investment in people make this a place to move on from when times are better

    A good deal of rhetoric around change and advancement, however little real opportunity to do so.
