    Excellent Company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSJP is a fast moving business and it allows its employees to take responsibility at an early stage in their careers. It is a very inclusive place to work and the senior management genuinely care about the welfare of their staff. You feel very much part of team.

    ConsIts easy to get sucked into working very hard - mostly because you are enjoying it. But it important to remember the work/life balance.

    Advice to Senior Managementwanting to constantly move forward is great and very inspiring. But it can be frustrating when decisions change at the last minute.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    A great workplace environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSJP is the kind of company that you love going to work because the workplace environment is amazing. Co-workers are friendly and very helpful. At SJP everyone definitely works very hard and everyone is committed to there business and their clientele, however, the company culture is very friendly and approachable

    ConsWhile people are friendly and approachable you have to be the first mover. Once you integrate yourself into the social dynamics it is very open, but at first it can be a challenge. It would have been better is management pushed a little harder and guided you a little more.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGuide and mentor new employees more.

    ProsGreat business model to succeed in the PWM space. Good insight into the PWM world of London.

    Cons"Partners" are essentially sales sharks. There are no HR processes to help out employees that are working with these partners, which allow a free reign for SJP partners to sometimes misuse their position of authority to treat their staff poorly.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great all around company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Cirencester, England (UK)

    ProsGreat working culture with exciting and interesting work. Good work life balance resulting in a highly motivated work team and management.

    ConsThe pay packet. But being based outside London the salary is ok, however to attract bright high achievers management must go further to get them to consider leaving the city.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf the management want to push the staff then reward them better compared to the industry. Overall the management are exceptional, willing to listen to their employees.
