    I worked at Henderson Global Investors full-time

    Pros

    Laid back, collegiate atmosphere with easy going people and quite a flat structure. Casual dress code and global reach with the new Janus merger

    Cons

    Legacy systems, below market average pay, no real interaction between teams, culture of responsibility to embedded well enough throughout the business.

    Advice to Management

    Pay staff more, hire better staff, review procedures from a strategic growth perspective rather than a box ticking compliance perspective, don't make decision based on politics

    I worked at Henderson Global Investors

    Pros

    Good building, offers good selection of share schemes. At lower levels there are some really good people, which makes daily working life good because these people can understand and work with each other.

    Cons

    persistently lacked a culture of internal growth and investing in staff. The infrastructure of the business outside front office cannot support the global functions of the company - too much control is focussed on London, which puts a lot of strain on individuals. Communication and interaction between departments across business has always been culturally poor. Too much focus placed on middle management, who some have...

    Advice to Management

    Scrutinise middle management performance by using employee surveys, be more forward thinking and mark performance of them by monitoring how they use all levels of third staff to their strengths, investing in them all.

    I worked at Henderson Global Investors full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Some good teams and people that work well together and have a dynamic attitude. Fairly good pay and benefits. Can be flexible.

    Cons

    No proper local management team - lots of staff issues and these were badly managed so many people left. Could have been handled better both locally and by country leader in UK or by HR.

    Advice to Management

    Need a good general manager with management training.
