I have been working at Western Asset Management as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

- Work life balance is outstanding
- Very low stress environment
- The corporate campus is similar to a 5 star hotel, including the "Bond Market" cafeteria. The Bond market provides organic top notch food for employees at the lowest prices imaginable.

Cons

- Pasadena is not the most ideal location

Keep up the great work

    Run from this place. You will be cornered and belittled when they no longer want you with them.

    I have been working at Western Asset Management full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The Bond Market and its subsidized food. Salaries and benefits are also good but nothing that you cannot find with a better company out there, in a much superior environment.

    Cons

    Management belittles subordinates, corner them to make them leave on their own, creating a harassing type of environment. In the past few years many of the benefits have been eliminated or curtailed (even the monthly birthday cake was eliminated), that's how bad things are for them. There's no room for advancement, and your performance is tied to the seniority of those who have been with the company forever. Even if you are more capable, have more knowledge, and more experience, or want to move forward, your salary and bonus will never exceed the salaries and bonuses of those who are already there, and they will not give you the opportunity to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Only by respecting the people you manage can you gain their respect back. This company is no longer what it used to be. It has been on a sharp decline since 2008. The work environment has notably deteriorated and managers are around to make their employees' live miserable. Awful place to work for.
