    Stable job

    UK centric so limited opportunities to move abroad although the US department is growing rapidly now (Chicago office).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work
    Inject the business with young and dynamic leaders
    Start being a driver of the market rather than a follower (it is something you have been doing recently and I think it's great)

    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.

    I worked at Legal and General Investment Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    One of the top asset manager globally - top name competiting with Blackrock and the likes.
    Access to global exposure. High HR entry barriers, therefore working with the very best in the industry. Exceptional investment performance.

    Cons

    Slightly too corporate. Lack of transparency (you never know what the management has up their sleeves or what they think of you - therefore creating a slightly awkward atmosphere). Culture is overly British (lack of honesty and transparency between colleagues - creating again an awkward environment to work in). Lack of career progression. Lack of thought leadership in the industry (e.g. despite dwarfing M&G and the likes in terms of prestige and investment knowledge, these still seem more present on the innovation stage - LGIM you have a great voice, use it!!!)

    Advice to Management

    Now that you have secured the top spot in the UK and Europe, focus on your international expansion. Hire more internationally and strengthen your values. Take on the thought leadership stage and start investing in marketing and communication! (I see the competitors everywhere but I never see LGIM).

    Pros

    Flat structure with very intelligent people.

    Cons

    Some department have quite old people who are difficult to accept new changes. Difficult to change teams or department

    Advice to Management

    Support the young people. There is a danger to miss intelligent people for not providing enough compensation
