Not what you would expect from a FTSE 100 listed company

Stockbroker's Assistant (Former Employee)
Bristol, England (UK)

I worked at Hargreaves Lansdown

ProsA swarve, sophisticated place to work giving a big city feel in the heart of Bristol. Nice offices, straight talking professionals, central location, fair salary.

ConsThe work is essentially boring with nothing in the way of structure or development for new starters,
Staff are allowed to languish and a terrible dog eat dog attitude abounds. There was no support from management.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to build up a proper new starter process, instigate actual policies behind the good values that management holds and communicate these ideas to low level management. Instigate policies that help new starters and ensure there is a documented framework behind employee CPD and HR. Consider expanding HR and communicate these techniques to management. Employ a recruiting manager as it was obvious that the back office manager did the recruiting and he got a S.A who was basically just like a pupil in the class to come over and help him when he felt like it. Communicate to low level management that they need to be resposible for ensuring that everyone in their team know what they are doing. Give a detailed job description with a structured report of what is expected of you on a daily basis. Get the line managers to communciate this to the staff and well.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
