    Pros

    Big company with established brand name, presence in Asia.
    M&G in London one of the best employers in UK

    Cons

    strong hierarchical culture, little focus on performance, poor communication and a lot of inefficiency.
    Slow product development, and not too customer focused either.
    Very little attention to HR issues, poor employee retention policy, and no comprehensible promotion approach

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the people in "the field"

    Pros

    Can be very flexible around location of work, working from home is acceptable for example

    Cons

    Big organisation with not much devolved decision making power. Tendency towards blame culture prevents people from being prepared to go out on a limb

    Advice to Management

    If you don't have the time to consider the small things, give people the confidence to deal with them on your behalf.

    Pros

    Good Company values, some great people, they invest in their people's training and they have a good renumeration scheme.

    Cons

    Quality of management can be inconsistent, work life balance can also easily start to erode.

    Advice to Management

    Get the performance management system working properly, should be a fantastic incentive for staff, it's not, it's a chore. Get rid of poor performers, no matter their seniority, quickly.
