  1. Generally LGIM is a good company and environment to work in, office based close to Moorgate tube in London.

    I worked at Legal and General Investment Management as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Perks, benefits: The people are friendly and the place has a big family atmosphere. Modern air conditioned office that has a large decent ground floor canteen area, and shower changing facilities useful for cyclists and joggers. Each floor has decent kitchen facilities - free tea, coffee and filtered water and big fridges. Good travel links - next to Moorgate tube.
    Leadership has changed over recent years, not all for the better unfortunately IMHO.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of change in recent years, with a gradual replacement of senior and middle managers. With many of the long term senior LGIM people retiring or being pushed out, and replaced mainly by former BGI senior people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unfortunately too much change happened too quickly in recent years and good people/systems not recognised or appreciated. This has had a big negative effect on the morale of the people still there. Management need to work hard a rebuilding the morale and trust of their people.

    I worked at Legal and General Investment Management full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You will come across very smart people from whom you can learn.

    Cons

    The company is full of politics, you will never know what the management really think of you. No infrastructure at all, everything is done in the least efficient way. Benefits way below City average with not even days of holiday matching average 25 per year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in infrastructure and yourself.

    I have been working at Legal and General Investment Management as a contractor

    Pros

    Great People (in the lower ranks), fairly easy-going work environment - this is no 7 to 7 Hedge Fund ...

    Cons

    Nearly all the senior management have change in the last couple of years, mainly due to retirement. Every new manager has his or her own 'new broom' to swing, and that's annoying a LOT of the people who've been there a while ...
