    Pros

    Great group of smart people to work with and reasonable management (mindset of get your work done and go home, genuinely support work/life balance). Excellent volunteer promotion program and supportive of community service.

    Cons

    I was surprised when I was let go. I don't think the performance evaluation process laid that out for me properly.

    Pros

    Large slow moving company. Job opportunities to advance from an entry level position are hard to come by. Most available positions are for senior management positions

    Advice to Management

    Create a clear career path

    I have been working at Franklin Templeton Investments full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent work life balance, free onsite gym, very supportive of volunteering, excellent benefits, friendly work environment, headquarters has a very nice campus, casual work environment (depending on department).

    Cons

    Unnecessary hierarchy which generally leads to micromanagement, low pay for industry and region. Bureaucratic almost to a fault, more concerned about which titles can attend meetings than proactively sharing information. No clear career path for certain positions.
