    I worked at Schroders full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    At its best Schroders has a collaborative collegiate culture, and allows opportunities to work with terrific people and achieve exciting progressive steps forward. It also allowed me personally the chance to experience many different roles in different business areas, progress to greater and more exciting challenges, and achieve success, without getting stuck in a one-track rut.

    Cons

    All this however is marred by outbursts of clique culture and crony-ism and damaging internal political struggles. As ever there is an innate snobbery associated with some parts of the Investment Management culture.
    The reciprocity of loyalty to the employee is questionable, as evidenced by their willingness to dispose of loyal hard-working veteran employees who no longer fit the current culture with extraordinary lack of sensitivity. (But would you expect anything different anywhere?)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more actively and carefully to the smarter and more experienced people in your operational teams further down the hierarchy. Especially when embarking on significant re-organisations and change programmes - and while they are in progress. By talking to them directly - not by 'surveys'. Management by walking about. The upward chain of communication always distorts the reality as seen at the rock-face.
