    I worked at Henderson Global Investors full-time

    Pros

    Above average asset managers , though, this means they tend to get their way despite prodding from management.

    More bureaucracy headed their way as merger with Janus settles

    I have been working at Henderson Global Investors (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are some good people here, and the business is growing. The work atmosphere is professional without being stuffy. Generous stock ownership plans available to all.

    Cons

    Lack of career advancement opportunities for some, and pay raises are stingy if existent at all. Office location makes the commute difficult depending on where you live.

    Advice to Management

    Emphasize rewarding your own first. Brag about the generous stock plans, which seems to be an afterthought. Seek out more input from the regions, instead of letting all decisions get made in London.

    I worked at Henderson Global Investors full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great sales, operations, and legal teams in U.S.office (Chicago) with outstanding leaders. Very experienced and knowledgeable professionals. Reasonable work-life balance, excellent benefits and compensation. Interaction with British management is typically supportive. Very good CEO.

    Cons

    London has the last say in most matters and that is sometimes frustrating and slow. Water Tower (Chicago) location makes commute challenging for some.

    Pros

    Relatively flat structure with lots of exposure to senior execs and fund managers.

    Lacks direction with the majority of growth coming from acquisition and ultimately the Janus merger.

    Pros

    Staff Canteen
    Nice People
    Stock Option plan
    Sports and social committee dynamic

    Cons

    Bonus have been divided by 2 since the merger are now under average.
    Too much political : rewards and career progression are based on who you know rather than how much you contribute to the business.
    Work life balance is uneven among teams some team leave at 5pm on the dot while others especially in IT /middle office/risk management stay up to 7pm on some days.
    Lack of senior management : have been missing 3 global heads for 1 year.

    Advice to Management

    Foster more career progression over the business and make sure that good people are rewarded more than average people.
