Legg Mason Investment Counsel Reviews
Pros – Great co-workers. Friendly, kind, genuinely nice people. Great benefits and compensation.
Cons – Nature of work leads to cramped deadlines and late nights.
Advice to Senior Management – Keep up the good work
Pros – Great place to learn about top-notch client servicing as clients are really the top priority!
Cons – Even in a worse shape than other Legg Mason affiliates/subsidiaries.
Negative, chaotic, and toxic work environment.
Incompetent senior management, desperately clutching at straws for solutions.
No long-term strategy for organizational growth and/or improvement.
Great if you are portfolio manager, but everyone else is treated like a second class citizen.
Lots of "dead wood" employees just serving their time until their retirement.
Academic and professional calibre of employees in general is poor.
Advice to Senior Management – The rot is worsening on a daily basis. It's reached a tipping point so do something about it rather than sticking your head in the sand and hoping things will improve by themselves.
