Pros

Legg Mason is a smaller corporate center that has outsourced responsibility to its investment affiliates and others. This has resulted in a more efficient corporate center that is focused on distribution and risk reduction activities. Individuals with relationship building skills are greatly valued.

Cons

Direction of the firm seems less certain. Entrepreneurial skills that were extremely valued in the 90’s and 00’s have become less important.

    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.
