    I have been working at Henderson Global Investors full-time

    Pros

    The Building is great and the location is great

    Cons

    The structure of the FM depmartment is not where it's suposed to be for a company of that size.

    Advice to Management

    Make big changes at the Top level as the people who work in the FM Team are great people the the person who runs it needs to think about how he manages his team

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

    Pros

    Growth oriented (but through acquisitions), good infrastructure in terms of it support, offices and workplace

    Cons

    No clear strategies. Very high turnover. For equity, 3 emerging markets teams in a few years, 3 global equity teams and 5(!) european equity teams(!). never hiring top performers but people from second tier players and then laying them off after few years when not performing. Not a really truly Global company. Top positions held only by british people.

    Advice to Management

    Short term acquisitions work well to increase visibility with investment bankers and with the market place but at some point will destroy the franchise. Return on capital for acquisitions are always forgotten by sell side analysts but not by long term investors.This is shown by how many successful fund managers have been with the company for more than 10 years: Very few excluding political figures with very poor performance.

    I have been working at Henderson Global Investors full-time for more than 6 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.
