I have been working at Western Asset Management full-time

Pros

Excellent benefits and competitive pay. Overall, a wonderful business culture to work in, especially for a company in the wealth management industry. I was fortunate to be able to work with some very talented people in my department where it was extremely team-focused and I never witnessed any backstabbing or individual competition within my particular group. Great place to network, and very open to promoting from within.

Cons

Executive managers did not come across as very approachable. Many people I knew who worked in certain departments had never met or seen the CEO, even though we all worked in the same office building.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Executive level management should be more visible to the employees -- not just with your senior managers, but everyone.

    Bottom line, push comes to shove: unethical to the core

    I worked at Western Asset Management full-time

    Pros

    nice furniture; surface looks nice, but check under the hood and you find a whole lot of mess

    Cons

    felt like women's rights took a 30 year u-turn; cronyism, boy's club personified; not to the point of outright sexual harrasment but subtle enough; so cliche with the affairs and subsequent promotions; if you don't think personal issues don't spread to professional ones, think again

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    fire yourself

    I worked at Western Asset Management full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Well-trained supervisors, comfortable working environment, good benefits

    Cons

    Low salary, no defined career path, no transparency about what it takes to get promoted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more with people 1-2 year exp. so you don't lose your best employees in years 2-3.
