    I worked at St. James's Place Wealth Management

    Pros

    SJP is the kind of company that you love going to work because the workplace environment is amazing. Co-workers are friendly and very helpful. At SJP everyone definitely works very hard and everyone is committed to there business and their clientele, however, the company culture is very friendly and approachable

    Cons

    While people are friendly and approachable you have to be the first mover. Once you integrate yourself into the social dynamics it is very open, but at first it can be a challenge. It would have been better is management pushed a little harder and guided you a little more.

    I worked at St. James's Place Wealth Management full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I worked at SJP for 3 years and was always made to feel very welcome. The team I worked in felt like a family and they were always willing to help each other out. The work-life balance was really good, certainly from my own experience anyway. My manager was happy for me to flex my hours to fit in appointments - which I greatly appreciated - and I very rarely had to stay late and never worked a weekend. This might vary between departments, but the company overall regularly encouraged a good work-life balance. The Charitable Foundation blows other companies out of the water. The amount of employees that give their time and money to help people less fortunate than themselves is a really core part of the company culture. Managers and Senior directors are all very supportive and encourage Foundation events. The pension is absolutely fantastic, the annual bonus is pretty generous too (although is partly determined by whether the company hits their targets for the year)

    Cons

    The only major downside for me was the job itself. I found the work frustrating and repetitive. A major downside that didn't affect me was the lack of car parking in Cirencester. Thankfully I walked to work, but if you don't live in the town there's no way of getting there on public transport and you have to arrive before 8am to get a parking space.
