    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Legg Mason (New York, NY) in May 2018.

    Interview

    I was introduced to one of the interviewer through a common reference at the university. I was later invited to their office for interview with the team. So, I was basically sitting down in the room with a few people in the team for the interview. Interview was average tell me about yourself and past experience related. Had good conversations during the interview with whole team, but when I inquired about the result, initially haven't got any reply at all! Later one of the employees gave a lame excuse, but I kinda lost interest in the firm by then.

    Overall, it was an unprofessional experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Legg Mason (Stamford, CT) in April 2018.

    Interview

    One phone interview from HR and two rounds from department. The first round was with the hiring manager and the second was with the department head. Overall the interview process was relax and laid back. No trick questions. However, the entire process from the phone interview to the offer took a bit more than a month, so be patient.

    Sales Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Legg Mason.

    Interview

    The interview process dragged on forever.... Senior managers are scared of their shadows and do not know how to make or cannot make decisions. Forget the HR people. The four I spoke with were morons, all of them. If you want to work for this company, be prepared to wait a long time, go through countless rounds of interviews and deal with people who are willing to let their business suffer while positions go unfilled and clients are left unattended because they lack focus and conviction about their mission.
