I worked at Western Asset Management

Pros

The company offers competitive salary and it has great benefits. The corporate office is located in Pasadena which offers many ammenities nearby.

Cons

Although the company emphasized respect as one of it's values, the company laid off 100+ employees without any respect of even letting employees to return to their cubicles to pick up their personal items and to say good bye. Employees were accompanied by their supervisors to the HR department. Within 1/2 hour, employees were escorted out of the building like criminals by security guards. It was a horrible experience!!!
The company offered little career growth; it was a dead end job. The company is not loyal to its employees; employees are not loyalty to the company.
I worked for a department and a boss who constantly demanded more and more of my performance. It was never enough.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Practices the company's values such as respect for its employees. Offers career growth and opportunities.

    I have been working at Western Asset Management

    Pros

    Great relaxed working environment, good work/life balance, chance to work with some very smart and successful people.

    Cons

    Career development possible, but takes time. Pay not the greatest until you've been there about 5 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    COmmunication was good, but could be better.

    I have been working at Western Asset Management (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people. Flat organization. Sad to say, but good food and great office

    Cons

    Management is non existent. Nobody in client service or portfolio management has seen our CEO in the office in years. Random people get promoted for no obvious reasons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create some monetary goals and incentives. Perhaps a vision? Hope is not a strategy. Separate from Legg ASAP !!! They are a leach that does nothing. Also consider firing under-performers. Many PMs have underperformed for Years and let go only after the assets leave
