I have been working at Legg Mason

Pros

Good corporate culture, diversified business with many moving parts, and family business foundation which can still be seen there today.

Cons

Constant changes at the upper management layers, difficult reemergence out of the recession, and some uncertain future prospects with a rogue investor on the board.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More transparency where possible, better career development tools and opportunities, and better knowledge management from the top down through the entry level positions.

    Pros

    Simple/light workload, apathy in the office leads to a haven for underacheivers

    Cons

    Salary well below industry standards, confused management, archaic procedures, extreme office politics/bureaucracy at hand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop reacting to random, intangible one-off events and take an educated initiative to solve problems. With all the executive rhetoric about being "best in class," we should be focused more on actually rewarding/compensating talent, rather than trying to improve margins by settling for mediocrity.
