    I worked at Franklin Templeton Investments (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people I've worked within the same capacity have been more than willing to help out. Team mentality except in certain departments. Fiduciary Trust Company Int'l being the exception rather than the rule.

    Cons

    If you want to work with a company for over 8 years and think they would have your back to move on to new positions, don't look here. They provide promotions with no new training. They promote to upper management, those who are not qualified. They have unreasonable expectations for the newly hired employees and that those in upper management aren't capable of meeting. What year do we live in that people get timed for bathroom breaks?

    Advice to Management

    Provide training and not from lame ducks. this isn't a presidential race. It's a company with real people as employees who are barely struggling to make a living!

    I worked at Franklin Templeton Investments full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to start career and learn the business. Competitive but collaborative environment. Benefits are amazing. 75% 401k match to the IRS limit.

    Cons

    Hard to put much into 401k early on as they start you very low. Management picks favorites. If you are on their good side you will be fast tracked. If not, you could be stuck in very low paying job for years.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. Actually pay attention to what employees are doing instead of only looking at reports.

    Pros

    Great place to gather necessary skills in the mutual fund investment industry.Overall supportive environment to allow you to succeed in your goals.

    Cons

    When asked for constructive criticism-it seems that they are not asking for input, but a rubber stamp on their pre-planned agenda.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the rank and file who supply the backbone of the operation. Managers have differing agendas and senior management will not be able to ascertain this unless they truly care.
