Highly bureaucratic & slow-moving, but excellent compensation and work-life balance

I have been working at Franklin Templeton Investments full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The company is well-managed, compensation and benefits are superb, job stability excellent, and turn-over low. Work-life balance is highly respected.

Cons

The company moves exceptionally slowly, red-tape is endless, promotions from within are rare, and it is an almost stiflingly conservative company culture.

    Pros

    Some great people to work with

    Cons

    Incredible to me how FT can keep/retain some people on board who clearly are unable or unwilling to work well with others only because they have been with the Co. for more than a few years

    Advice to Management

    Be more self aware of your team dynamics...or dysfunction.

    Pros

    Friendly people, reasonable hours for this industry, beautiful campus, good benefits

    Cons

    Location in the suburbs of San Francisco is not fun for those living in the city. Pay is lower than peers (but job security is very good). Not much turnover, so few opportunities for promotion or changing your work.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of employees who are strong and motivated, but end up leaving because it's difficult to move into a new position within the firm (mid-to-senior people stay a long time). Create more chances to transfer internally and around the organization.
