    My time at Legg Mason was a learning experience.

    Global Investment Analyst (Former Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsI enjoyed the flexible working hours, as well as the ability to telecommute. The pay was great with excellent benefits.

    ConsThe word transparency was used a lot, but it was anything but transparent. There were too many "clicks" within the departments. Employee privacy was an issue, as HR was apart of the clicks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to management is to be truthful with your employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Legg Mason Internship

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe environment was very friendly and the supervisors are happy to teach employees.

    ConsNothing substantial. The location is pretty good for Baltimore, but its still Baltimore. Not the safest city by far.

    Excellent place to work at an investment advisory company.

    ProsLegg Mason has an excellent culture and great heritage. The firm values hard work and ethical behavior. I would recommend LM as an employer.

    ConsThe pay at Legg Mason is not always top notch, but the people and culture and stability can offset this.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe advice that i would give would be to have the investment affiliates continue to seek best practices from the other subs.

    A great place for work life balance

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLegg Mason is an outstanding place to work. Management is very good with helping employees balance work-life and they treat employees fairly.

    ConsUnless you live in the Baltimore metro region, career opportunities may be limited. One of the best companies that I've ever worked for!
