    I have been working at Legal & General Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    beautiful building, indoor gym, great pay, personal space, you can get certification at your own pace with no pressure.

    Cons

    Difficult to move to a different department if you want to move up in the company or even make a change. Training is highly lacking. Some departments have DOS systems and you work using function keys and black/green screens. Supervisors are not all certified ! but they can run a department? Employees know more than the supervisors and are certified.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay for better computer systems instead of ice cream days. Have the managers take all the LOMA classes for there job and get certified.

    Former Employee - IT Manager in Kingswood, South East England, England (UK)

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

    Pros

    As in the Title the people are fantastic, it si an company where you can get stuff done without being dragged into the politics to much however if you are a political animal it has plenty of games to play !

    The offices in Kingswood are fantastic with great facilities including a pool, gym and loads of pitches for all sports. Good canteen and coffee bar and very clean and well maintained, car park can be interesting at times but overall 5* for a working environment.

    Benefits package is always good, especially and unsurprisingly the pension is fantastic.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of change in recent years which has a negative impact on staff moral but as an outsider I can still see what a great place to work L&G is.

    Communication from managers to staff has always been an issue and I belive this is still the case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to love your staff again, the ethos has always been an arm around the shoulder and positive encouragement instead of a stick, make sure you return fully to that ethos as a happy workforce is a dynamic, focused workforce..
