    I have been working at M&G full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture at M&G is amazing, everyone is friendly and helpful. Work-life balance is a priority in the company. As a graduate, you benefit from a privileged position: you have support for professional qualifications, visibility in the company, networking opportunities, ... Amazing working environment.

    Cons

    M&G is a very traditional business, the systems are outdated - therefore a fair bit of unnecessary manual work , but modernisation is on its way.

    Advice to Management

    To be more open to new ideas and change. To encourage efficiency.

    I have been working at M&G (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As a graduate, you are given a huge amount of support and a tremendous amount of training and learning opportunities. The work-life balance here is great. It really is a 9-5 company with a huge range of after-work activities available. All the employees here are friendly.

    Cons

    Flat structure of management which is irrelevant in your first few years here, but could be a con if looking at investing your future here in the long-term.

    Advice to Management

    Create some more opportunities for gaining responsibility and make salaries more competitive.


  3. An amazing place to kick-off your career!

    I have been working at M&G full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work life balance, rotation experience, friendly culture where everyone is willing to help you. Very good training scheme which supports you finding a job in the business.

    Cons

    A slow moving company, which needs to invest in its infrastructure. Little choice about where you rotate to in the graduate scheme.

    Advice to Management

    More Competitive pay, bigger offices needed, and a more joined up approach between the business units.

    Pros

    Going through modernisation of processes, more automation, less manual processes and generally improving the way things work. It is possible to have your own changes implemented if you can deliver it yourself i.e. write the script, make the changes, get the approval (can be quick).

    Cons

    Systems are very old, many built in-house and out of date. Too many manual work arounds for existing systems - and fund managers unwilling to change. Strangled by PCAP in terms of funding and process.

    Advice to Management

    Look at those who drive the changes and let them lead - stop office politics and entrenched staff hold you back.
