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.
