I have been working at Franklin Templeton Investments full-time (More than 3 years)

Apply more emphasis to a product's profitability for all staff involved.

    Pros

    Everyone is always willing to help whenever you need assistance with something important, and the superior ranks are very good charismatic and caring people.

    Cons

    Wish the working conditions were better though, I feel like there should be more interactive places inside the firm where the employees get the chance to get to know each other better.

    I worked at Franklin Templeton Investments full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People are genuinely friendly
    Those with an entrepreneurial spirit who want to work in a corporate environment could do well. FTI likes "big picture" thinkers
    San Mateo Campus is an excellent facility with good amenities like gym, cafe, employee services
    Benefits are excellent and 401k matching is exceptional
    It's surprisingly easy to wind up working there for many, many years

    Cons

    Base salaries may not be market-competitive
    Decisions are VERY consensus-driven, making innovation and agility difficult
    The friendly and relationship-oriented environment makes it hard to have difficult conversations. Those with direct/blunt communication styles face a tough time at this company
    Financial services is highly regulated and FTI is fairly conservative. Getting things done involves multiple layers of approval and revision, which can be frustrating and painstakingly slow.

    Advice to Management

    Feedback and succession planning happens in a bubble making it difficult for employees to really understand their strengths/weaknesses. Open up the feedback loop.
    External consultants do NOT always have better answers. The staff is surprisingly talented and accomplish great things if you give them a chance to take prudent risks.
