    I worked at Legal and General Investment Management full-time

    Pros

    Excellent market reputation which has come from doing things the L&G way - success like this is no accident. Strong and consistent growth, steered by good top and mid-level managers. Strong levels of experience - staff are of all ages, fostering a friendly family-like culture able to retain /foster good people and very strong domains of expertise. Work-life balance is attractive - many stay for a long time. Stable job but probably not top paying.

    Cons

    May have image of below market compensation for some market-driven roles.

    Advice to Management

    Periodic reinvention is needed, to prevent becoming a victim of own success. Invest more in staff and infrastructure, particularly in market-driven roles. Revisit the balance between staff and stakeholder value, ESG - the current staff are your most valuable assets.. Be even more ambitious internationally - you have a winning management / market formula.
