    I worked at M&G (More than a year)

    Pros

    Loved working for M&G, great company to work for with an excellent management team.

    Cons

    There is a general lack of procedures, every segment is pretty different so there is a lack of consistency across the board

    Advice to Management

    Create a bit more consistency across company, have more company wide visibility, group managers could be more visible and engaged

    I have been working at M&G full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance
    Flexible working hours/work from home for some people
    Nice people

    Cons

    M&G has changed a lot over the last 18 month- 2 years. It has gone from a genuinely lovely place to work to a place where the majority of people seem stressed and demotivated as a result of being overworked and under valued.
    Silos and a very unclear structure mean that teams do not know what other teams do and it is not clear a lot of the time who is responsible for what.
    Young talent isn't nurtured and there aren't many opportunities within M&G due to a low turnover of older/more senior staff meaning young people use it as a stepping stone.
    Below average pay and bonuses. M&G refuse to pay you the going rate for your role but when you leave because of this, they pay the going rate to bring someone in. They are also happy to pay for contractors (of which there are many) despite not paying perm staff as they should.

    Advice to Management

    If you value your staff, show it.
