    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.

      I have been working at Henderson Global Investors full-time

      Pros

      Great Canteen Good career growth opportunities and training for Non-IT departments

      Collegiate environment is encouraged, but may not be practised. Cronyism creeping in

      Great more women in management roles Invest in your permanent employees who are not in management roles and give them at least equal opportunities as contractors

        Pros

        Work with clever people in a nice office

        Cons

        It's all about the money and the handful of star managers who are perceived to be the main bread winners for the business. Everyone else is dispensable

        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
