Current Employee - Finance Manager in City of London, England (UK)

I have been working at Legal & General Group

Pros

- Friendly family-based culture;
- Sports facilities;
- Work-life balance;
- Multiple sites - Central London, Greater London; Home counties

Cons

- Professionally skewed to Actuaries more than general management, Finance or Accountants;
- Development relies more on yourself than HR framework (Who you know rather than what you know, somewhat);
-

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- More investment in underlying systems and processes required - some reporting processes are prone to break-down and have key-man dependencies;
- Need to move away from a more traditional insurance company mindset to more modern financial institution mind-set;
- Still a very UK localised company with all major rivals having 'significant' International presence - Capital buffer should be used to diversify internationally - not just for presence but becoming a major player in some international market
- Become a more International/Global brand than a mere UK one after 175 years.

    Slowness of organisation to react & lack of investment in people make this a place to move on from when times are better

    Pros

    Stable working hours and family friendly environment to work

    Cons

    A good deal of rhetoric around change and advancement, however little real opportunity to do so.
    Work projects show little variation, to advance the employee.
    Quiet office and sporadic attempts by senior management to promote an atmosphere / sociability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Renumerate staff better and provide a better structure for advancement.Without this staff wil continue to leave.

    Pros

    Company enjoys a good reputation in the UK market.
    Large AuM (>£300 billion)

    Cons

    The culture is passive and a lot of inertia to bring about progress and change.
    They do not invest much into staff - whether it be financially or career development.
