    I have been working at Redington Ltd. full-time

    Pros

    -a lot of young, enthusiastic people
    -great access to very senior people (despite growing headcount!)
    -Redington Investment Committee meetings are open for anyone to sit in and listen
    -you are given a lot of responsibility early on
    -there is more focus on diversity recently

    Cons

    -first 2-3 years can be intense for a grad in terms of work-life balance but this has now been recognised and senior management is working on it
    -office space is a bit crammed but we are moving later this year

    Advice to Management

    -let's not lose our culture, values and purpose as we grow!
    -please keep up with the good work on improving systems, data management and operational set up
    -I really welcome our recent focus on improving diversity but I think there is still more that can be done to manage behavioural biases e.g. in management related decisions

    I have been working at Redington Ltd. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture - really care about doing the right thing for individuals in the firm
    People at all levels have direct exposure to the most senior people in the firm who really listen to you
    Great people to work with
    Challenging and motivating work evnvironment - lots of opportunity to step up and take ownership

    Cons

    the firm's culture of hard work and commitment to what we do can lead to longer hours - but I feel there is increasingly scope for people to take control of their own destiny in the respect.

    A year ago I might have said diversity - but this has been actively addressed

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening and caring
    Avoid too many layers of seniority
    Ditch the titles that have come from investment banks - we don't need them
    Keep the momentum going

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Highly intelligent, approachable and most importantly good people who care about their work. Learning culture, the opportunity to get involved in much more than just your day job. Managers want you to grow as a person as well as a professional.

    Cons

    Very fast staff growth could jeopardise culture. Communication between teams can be poor so key people fall in and out of the loop

    Long core hours with a culture to work longer hours as standard.

    Pros

    The team are second to none, from seasoned industry professionals from leading world banks to graduates and experienced Scientists, Biomedics and Pharmacists, the team have a wealth of knowledge and experience.

    No such thing as micromanagement! You are left and trusted with the autonomy to complete tasks, with ample support from a friendly team when necessary.

    Real exposure from an early stage, I was in a Manager meeting in my second week at Redington and asked for my opinion and analysis on a Fund Manager. Meet with a variety of professionals from Asset Managers to Trustees in internal and external meetings.

    Business ownership! If you feel something can be changed at Redington for the better, whether a Senior member or an Intern, the company will ensure you have your voice, and provided you bring a solution to a problem, will support you in taking the steps necessary to implement the change.

    Cons

    Outgrowing the current offices with a largely expanding team

    Advice to Management

    As the firm gets bigger don't lose the current culture.

    I have been working at Redington Ltd. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Culture
    - Growing
    - Opportunities to do new interesting work and take on additional responsibility
    - Lots of industry experts easily accessible to learn from
    - High pay compared to peer group comanies

    Cons

    - steep learning curve when joining
    - Expect everyone to do what they can to contribute to the company, not appropriate if you want to clock in and clock out 9 to 5
    - Due to large number of opportunities to do new interesting work, employees often take on a lot of work and can get very busy. Highly flexible working has improved this.

    Advice to Management

    The new direction under Mitesh as CEO is exciting, don't diversify into too many growth opportunities and over stretch.

    I have been working at Redington Ltd. full-time

    Pros

    A relatively small company, things are moving fast in here, can be more structured

    Advice to Management

    Clear accountability and responsibility and clear decision making process
