    I worked at BlueBay Asset Management full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Only pros I can think about is the location

    Cons

    Terrible place to be in. Need to know how to please your manager. Uses bonus carrot to bully and a way of saying good bye. Think twice before you join IT department. Couple of people rule the IT if you are not in their good books you will be get bullied every day.

    Advice to Management

    Remove bonus from the benefit package from every staff other than sales and profit centre. Create a fearless atmosphere to work (especially in IT)

    I have been working at BlueBay Asset Management full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Offices location. I cannot find anything else positive. Maybe something else positive is the fruit in the morning. The company used to be a great place to work. Now it is full of people that arrived in the las 6 years who are just good talkers and low action. Very lazy!

    Cons

    It is not a meritocratic place. Those that get far just play the 'politics' card. Good talents have left or finding a way to leave. Salaries are terrible

    Advice to Management

    Difficult place to improve

    Pros

    Overall the people are quite nice, but the structure is flat. People stay for years and are unwilling to leave.

    Cons

    A bit stagnant, the managers have been in the same positions for years and there is no room for progression as the heads and senior managers are also fixated on their positions.

    Pros

    Fantastic location, great opportunities, open and honest management who are not there to pull the wool over your eyes. Good career progression if you put the work in, success comes to those who take ownership of items.

    Cons

    Could probably organise more social events, work can be stressful and long hours are often the norm (like at any financial company).

    Advice to Management

    Keep on going as you are, make sure you keep the staff informed.
