    I have been working at Brandywine Global Investment Management as an intern

    Pros

    This is a great asset management company, people here are so friendly and so willing to teach. I spent a great time as a summer intern here.

    Cons

    The company is not that big and they only hire experienced people. People might find lifestyle too relaxed since its pace is really slow.

    I worked at Brandywine Global Investment Management

    Pros

    Benefit programs are very good. Help to offset somewhat weak base comps. Work life balance can be excellent depending on where in the organization you are working

    Cons

    Very flat management structure. People tend to be pigeon-holed upon hire with limited advancement opportunities. (Again, can vary based on where in the org. you land.) Lots of recent hires from outside the company into more senior positions rather than developing and advancing existing talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be more inclusive; i.e., include impacted staff and managers in strategic planning rather than imposing decisions made without input from experienced staff. Judging by growth of business, very effective at producing performance that leads to growth, but very little metric info is shared with staff on how wins are achieved.

    I have been working at Brandywine Global Investment Management as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company (or as they call it The Firm) has excellent and generous benefits. The executive board truly care about their employees and the firm offers good work life balance. Unlike wall street firms this one offers great stability and the executives are very approachable.

    Cons

    IT leadership is cluless. The technology used is outdated. Lack of vision. There is frequent turnover in management without any explanation. The CIO seems to be losing control of her group and her leadership skills are highly questionable and based on emotion. This has contributed to an atmosphere of fear and uncertainty and lack of trust within the group. Non existent career growth

    Solid place to work if you are the content type, but you can become bored quick if you are seeking advancement.

    I worked at Brandywine Global Investment Management

    Pros

    The firm respects and values their employees more than you will find at larger firms, flexible work/personal balance, professional firm structure, competitive compensation.

    Cons

    The firm needs to focus more on promoting from within, there are also some serious egos in among the higher-ups in the firm. Employee's take the blame for much of management's flaws. Management threatens employees of job-loss in the event of a mistake.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to avoid the excessive blame-game. Do better evaluation of identifying key problems from within firm management, and definitely encourage promotion from within.
