    I have been working at Franklin Templeton Investments

    Pros

    Corporate culture is superb, really good people all around which leads to a lot of long-tenured employees. Work/life balance is probably one of the best I've seen as well. Company also encourages inter-department movement so it is fairly seamless to look internally for jobs.

    Cons

    Compensation is considered more on the conservative end and career growth options could be limited.

    Pros

    Franklin will provide you with good exposure to a wide range of groups. At the very least, you can expect to grow your skill set. Franklin definitely values extended education (either training on new tools, business concepts or even post-graduate/MBA studies) and is willing to fund most learning ventures. It's a good place to be if you want to ramp up your experience. Also, the products are great -- the... portfolio team is definitely the brain trust of the company.

    Cons

    In terms of career growth, there is little to no room for growth. For this reason, talent does not seem to "stick around" at Franklin (two years seems to be the max for true top performers unless you've sold your soul to the graduate/MBA education assistance program). In terms of management, most "leaders" were placed in their position based on the years they dedicated to Franklin (versus... talent/intelligence/experience) so decisions made may not always be the "wisest". To put it frankly, not everyone at Franklin is all that bright and they tend to drag their feet to get anything done.

    Pros

    Campus are ambitious and beautiful, free transport, gym. You can balance work and life.

    Cons

    Career growth is not there, lots of politics and partiality. Salary and increment are less. Bonus will get high or low through partiality not as per hard work. Low growth. Don't stay for longer period.

    Advice to Management

    spending lots of money for gardening and for campus instead of please invest that money for employees benefits.
