    - - - - - -

    Cons

    The company is mired in bureaucracy. Too many top level executives with bloated salaries and too much administration. Lack of focus on real performance. Mergers have weakened the company. Most of the performers have left the company.

    I worked at Man Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Met some good people across the business, open friendly and supportive. .

    Cons

    Management are another story they are very good at managing up and making themselves look good. A very adversarial and bullying culture, any internal issues you may have HR are not up to much.

    Advice to Management

    Try and respect and support your people including contractors.


  10. "Intern"

    I worked at Man Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good learning experience. Open group. Easy to talk to management.

    Cons

    Did not get full exposure to entire firm. This makes sense given the limited time of the internship.
