    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.

    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.

    I have been working at Henderson Global Investors full-time

    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.
