    I worked at Legg Mason

    Pros

    History legacy; big organization with large network; strong sales pipeline; culture is not that aggressive comparing to other shops; nice work environment.

    Cons

    Sluggish recovery from the recession; doubtful organization structure; sometimes people could be too laid-back. Location might not be as desirable as other firms. Not strong internationally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall a nice place to work for mid-career people. Could develop good relationship with co-workers for future career development opportunity.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Legg Mason

    Pros

    I got to work with a lot of intelligent people that are hard working. I was able to learn a lot at my time there.

    Cons

    Challenging because of the hard times the company had. The company at the time was going through many changes that made it hard to work..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership at Legg Mason was very senior, but was lacking the ability to really inspire employees.
