Allowed me to build my career and take necessary courses/qualifications to suit business needs

Business Trainer (Former Employee)
Cardiff, Wales (UK)

I worked at Legal & General Group full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood benefits, development opportunities . Worked as telesales, quality and business trainer. Learnt a lot about regulation in financial services and training. Reasonable working hours.

ConsProgression and wage increases massively reduced dying the downturn in the economy and restricted development opportunities creating repeat work with very little recognition or reward.

Advice to Senior ManagementChanged since I worked here.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good benefits, but disappointing recognition of development

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Birmingham, England (UK)

I have been working at Legal & General Group full-time for more than a year

ProsGood benefits and opportunities/encouragement to develop/cross-train.

ConsLittle room for progression, particularly within one's own department or team. Similarly, although bonus is related to job performance, base salary doesn't reflect performance, knowledge, skills or development. Once you start on a salary, you're pretty much stuck with it unless you manage to get a promotion and step up a grade.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

For the flexibility it provides, you may be sacrificing higher aspirations

Finance Manager (Current Employee)
City of London, England (UK)

I have been working at Legal & General Group

Pros- Friendly family-based culture;
- Sports facilities;
- Work-life balance;
- Multiple sites - Central London, Greater London; Home counties

Cons- Professionally skewed to Actuaries more than general management, Finance or Accountants;
- Development relies more on yourself than HR framework (Who you know rather than what you know, somewhat);
-

Advice to Senior Management- More investment in underlying systems and processes required - some reporting processes are prone to break-down and have key-man dependencies;
- Need to move away from a more traditional insurance company mindset to more modern financial institution mind-set;
- Still a very UK localised company with all major rivals having 'significant' International presence - Capital buffer should be used to diversify internationally - not just for presence but becoming a major player in some international market
- Become a more International/Global brand than a mere UK one after 175 years.

General apathy; good bunch of people; managers protect own backs at all costs; low salaries

Work Place Trainer (Current Employee)
Cardiff, Wales (UK)

I have been working at Legal & General Group

ProsFree shares when the company is doing well; generally supportive culture; work environment is less restrictive than other call centre-based workplaces

ConsLow wages; when the company doesnt do as well as expected, redundancies are the first thing that will happen; too much 'boom' hiring and 'bust' firing; chance of advancement very limited/non-existent

Advice to Senior ManagementSupport the foot soldiers/front-liners and what's more, listen to them - their ear seems to be much closer to the ground than managements
