Pros

Great People (in the lower ranks), fairly easy-going work environment - this is no 7 to 7 Hedge Fund ...

Cons

Nearly all the senior management have change in the last couple of years, mainly due to retirement. Every new manager has his or her own 'new broom' to swing, and that's annoying a LOT of the people who've been there a while ...

    Pros

    Great company to work for.
    Relatively relaxed atmosphere and mostly friendly colleagues
    Good opportunities for moves between departments
    Stable job

    Cons

    UK centric so limited opportunities to move abroad although the US department is growing rapidly now (Chicago office).
    Although one of the biggest Asset Managers in the UK not many people now the company

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work
    Inject the business with young and dynamic leaders
    Start being a driver of the market rather than a follower (it is something you have been doing recently and I think it's great)

  2. Generally LGIM is a good company and environment to work in, office based close to Moorgate tube in London.

    Pros

    Perks, benefits: The people are friendly and the place has a big family atmosphere. Modern air conditioned office that has a large decent ground floor canteen area, and shower changing facilities useful for cyclists and joggers. Each floor has decent kitchen facilities - free tea, coffee and filtered water and big fridges. Good travel links - next to Moorgate tube.
    Leadership has changed over recent years, not all for the better unfortunately IMHO.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of change in recent years, with a gradual replacement of senior and middle managers. With many of the long term senior LGIM people retiring or being pushed out, and replaced mainly by former BGI senior people.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately too much change happened too quickly in recent years and good people/systems not recognised or appreciated. This has had a big negative effect on the morale of the people still there. Management need to work hard a rebuilding the morale and trust of their people.
