I have been working at Franklin Templeton Investments full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

High ethics, nice campus, great benefits, especially the retirement plan. Top leadership is solid. Good people for the most part with a few exceptions.

Cons

Some mid-upper level management is too entrenched and long-tenured. They have lost touch was anything other than the Franklin way of doing things. Performance reviews are not 360 reviews.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Implement 360 reviews. Some mid/upper management are cronies and will have each others' backs no matter what, and protect each other, even if it is to the detriment of the company's interests. Good people for the most part but completely shielded from any genuine constructive criticism.

    I have been working at Franklin Templeton Investments full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    60 years established corporation
    solid ability to save money

    Cons

    downright dysfunctional & full of lies, no respect

    80 hour work weeks for the little people, (don't believe the "7.5 hour day" lies)
    below cheap salaries and non-existent raises (it will be about 1-2% a year at BEST!)

    at the same time - watch management drive luxury cars and go on vacation and show up one day a month

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take a survey of how your non-management people feel.

    turnover here is disgustingly high - not happy here with their pay or the corporate two-faced disrespect from management

    get some VALUES AND MORALS and learn how to treat HUMANS like humans
