    I have been working at Western Asset Management full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great place to work and you have outstanding benefits. Work/Life balance is amazing for an asset manager. This would be a great place to end the last 10-20 years of a career if you worked at all the big names early on.

    Cons

    Compensation is low relative to the industry. Promotions happen but you have to wait until your annual review before you see an adjustment. Very unfair.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a better remuneration package for top performers and issue raises when a promotion occurs versus providing them at the end of the fiscal year.
