    I have been working at Man Investments

    Pros

    Free food ;-)
    Huge bonuses (some of the biggest in the City of London)
    Good salary and benefits
    Ability to invest directly into main funds (usually it requires around £100,000 minimum to do so
    Mainly promotions from within
    World leader in the field and very fast-paced

    Cons

    Some under-resourcing in key areas with large bias in others that are not warranted
    Can be incredible pressured
    Has become political
    Elements of blame culture starting to emerge

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Faster career growth opportunities should be given to top talent.

    I have been working at Man Investments

    Pros

    A good firm with decent people - very sales driven and workers given freedom to work independently and contribute to the business. Senior management very approachable.

    Cons

    Likes to promote within - can be good but has led to underqualified people in certain positions. Historically, a lack of investment in people (and systems).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees like to see/talk to/give input into business - never underestimate the power of walking around and chattting to employees.
