Pros

Benefits of mid-size, established company with exposure to global market and relationships with other major firms within the industry. Depending on function, stress level is generally kept low.

Cons

Future of business model in question post-recession, company execs don't seem to have a definitive plan for moving company forward which has ripple effect on employee moral and career outlook.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be less reactive and more direct, with a clear objective - preferably including some sort of initiative for employee development and growth, and possibly scaling back range of products/services to operate with more efficiency.

    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.

    No opinion of CEO
