    I have been working at Brewin Dolphin full-time

    Pros

    I've been with Brewin for over ten years now and their support for training, wellbeing and family friendly policies has continued to improve year on year. It is the little things too, which you might not expect from a FTSE250 company - Christmas Raffle, quizzes for staff in lockdown, commitment to retain all staff during COVID; these make a huge difference and help with fostering a strong culture

    Cons

    As across the industry, it is hard work - any company seeking to stay ahead on what clients want now and in the future means the need to adapt with change, regularly!

    Former Employee - Administrative 

    I worked at Brewin Dolphin full-time

    Pros

    Free tea and free coffee

    Cons

    Very ageist organisation, concentrated more on new young starts, also bullying culture the norm in its workforce as favouritism of some, normal practise at the expense of the remaining workforce.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Brewin Dolphin full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Long history and great values that are communicated well and demonstrated by colleagues and managers all the time. Fantastic training scheme with great support, (Tutors, Online Courses, Mocks, Workshops etc.) Training goes past just exams to soft skills sessions which are well thought out to help you develop. Great practical care of employees wellbeing throughout lockdown. If you are interested in markets then it's a really interesting and rewarding role with great opportunities to progress and develop. Team and management does a good job of including junior employees in feeling they are a part of the team's success and are rewarded accordingly. Individual successes and efforts are always recognised and encouraged.

    Cons

    Moving in the right direction but more schemes for inter-office collaboration and socialising at all levels would be great (appreciate it's been difficult in 2020).

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Brewin Dolphin full-time

    Pros

    Hands on experience and technology has been improved.

    Cons

    Lack of diversity. Lack of pay transparency. Office politics means people get rewarded for externalities to their job. Classic stockbroker structure of being seen at your desk to prove you’re working late to management when really being unproductive all day.
