    I worked at F&C Asset Management full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people and friendly, but sometimes just too nice and things take forever. Marketing and distribution was in when I joined.
    Great offices above Liverpool street very easy
    Hopefully now under BMO ownership they will be better direction for distribution

    Cons

    Group Management lots of egos and very little action as a team
    Marketing was almost none existence, felt like a business in decline
    lack of understanding of who they are

    I have been working at F&C Asset Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work life balance, 25% people are excellent at doing their job and care about the quality of the output.

    Cons

    Poor comp, not sure where futures revenues will actually come from... LDI?! ETF?! I don't think they can compete. Needs more direction from the top.

    Advice to Management

    As above

    I worked at F&C Asset Management full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The staff are friendly, office is well located and pleasant, good IT support.

    Cons

    Lack of advancement, constant cost cutting, very low compensation package

    Advice to Management

    Start looking at the skills your employees have. Start thinking about their needs for advancement and encourage them to think about the direction of their role and the direction of the company. Engage with employees and stop just doing a 'through the motions' yearly review. It does not work.
