- - - - - -

Cons

The company is mired in bureaucracy. Too many top level executives with bloated salaries and too much administration. Lack of focus on real performance. Mergers have weakened the company. Most of the performers have left the company.

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial spirit, diversity of opportunity, willingness to support internal moves, occasionally interesting culture. A lot of fun, bright people. If you're in the right part of the business and friends with the right people can be very lucrative. Lunch budget is provided, although significantly less than it once was.

    Cons

    Highly political environment, senior management operate a very hedge fund approach which doesn't mix so well with a public company, very short term view, long working hours (in certain roles). Extreme discrepancies in terms of pay.

    Advice to Management

    Either take the company private and run it as a diversified hedge fund group, or run it as a publicly listed asset management business. Also worth removing a layer of senior management cronies who do nothing other than collect a huge salary.

  2. A great company that kept changing with the times, giving opportunities for development

    Pros

    As the company was always evolving my role was also always changing giving me opportunities for development. There was also a real "can do" attitude which combined with a rather flat management structure meant that any idea for an employee, no matter how junior, could get done. However the best thing of working there was the staff. Some fantastic colleagues.

    Cons

    Man used to be a very decentralised company, but as part of cutbacks, everything got centred in London. So if you were not based there, there was limited opportunities for development.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on performance.
