    I worked at Legg Mason full-time

    Pros

    Very nice people at the London Office
    Exposure to Global Mutual Fund distribution

    Cons

    Poor communication and management by the US office since re-structure of London operations
    Extremely understaffed with certain teams working late nights and weekends
    Lack of experience by US office in managing the International business
    Poor client service by US office in servicing the International business
    Lack of basic investment knowledge by certain US offices
    Efforts by US staff in being extra nice to London staff comes across as unsincere and at times insulting given their actions and results do not match their nice promisses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    International Offices and bugedts need to be managed and lead by local professionals not US based ones.
    US professionals need to carry degrees in finance or be made to acquire an equivalent financial certification in order to close the gap with their counterparties in the International offices.

    I worked at Legg Mason

    Pros

    Competitive compensation package with stock option and profit sharing. Senior management is supportive. Opportunity for advancement. Jobs related classes are avaiable for employees.

    Cons

    Experience difficulty with inter groups/departments transfer. Had to look for one's coverage to get time off work. Outsourced IT infrastructure resulted in laid off.
