    I have been working at Schroders

    Pros

    Competent, friendly people, interesting work, the work-life balance tends to be better than some other financial organisations. Convenient location near St. Pauls.

    Cons

    Remuneration not very competitive. Job security still poor. How you are treated depends very much on your boss. Too many internal reorganisations. Middle management don't sometimes understand just how hard their people work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management tend to be preoccupied with spending cuts and a "more from less" mindset; there is a limit to just how far they can squeeze things.

    I have been working at Schroders

    Pros

    Relaxed working environment, low staff turnover and a great name in the City enabling opportunities beyond working for the company

    Cons

    Pay is not great although benifits and holidat allowance partially make up for poor basic compensation. Inequality of pay in senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management need to integrate themselves better and understand the day to day running of the business. Otherwise, can't grumble.
