    I have been working at Henderson Global Investors full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Friendly Place to Work Relaxed office enviroment Great Benefits Reasonable Bonus (in times of hardship) IT and Ops approx 10%

    Cons

    High staff turnover Little career progression, seems to be many middle managers "onto a good thing" which blocks any further progression

    Advice to Management

    Management should review middle management to see if they are the best person for the job or if that posistion is even required.

    Pros

    Henderson has a great corporate culture with a forward thinking and entrepreneurial meritocracy that actively supports its employees and their careers.

    Cons

    Salary and total compensation leave something to be desired. Their is very little opportunity for advancement and the office location is not ideal.

    Pros

    Henderson is a great place to work, especially in the IT department. Cutting edge technology and the ability to respond and move quickly make for a dynamic and interesting place to work. Benefits are extremely good and the working environment is very relaxed.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's too relaxed for employees own good.

    Advice to Management

    I think senior management are doing a great job in difficult times.

      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...

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

      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 full-time for more than 3 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.
