    I worked at Holborn Assets for more than a year

    Pros

    Working at Holborn Assets was an exciting experience as not only did I get to work with lots of different people and learn lots of different things about Digital Marketing, but I also got to travel to Dubai & Sri Lanka and work among many different cultures. The work I was given was also very interesting and there was a lot of freedom to try your own ideas and think outside of the box. Although very much a corporate environment, the Digital Marketing department was very nice to work in as it follows more of a 21st century Google type approach to work, such as smart casual instead of that dreaded suited, booted and constrained to a desk all day approach. The managers I had were also very fun, friendly and would sure love to work with them all again and go for a few drinks down at the Crown & Lion in Dubai or Cheers Bar in Sri Lanka :)

    Cons

    The lifts in the Dubai office take sooo long.

    I worked at Holborn Assets full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Holborn Assets Dubai was a great company to work at where I felt like I was doing people good. I previously worked for a not so reputable firm in the UAE whereby I was told to lie and deceive customers in-order to make a sale. Holborn Assets Dubai were totally different. Everyone is very friendly including management and admin. Work at Holborn Assets Dubai if: 1. You are willing to work hard and meet targets. 2. Looking to work with many other expats from mainly Europe and the UK. 3. Have a deep understanding in Finance. 4. Friendly and have a good track record that can be proven.

    Cons

    Not a lot of bad about Holborn Assets Dubai, which is unusual for me! 1. The lifts at the office are dreadful! But this is the owner of the buildings fault. 2. If your English skills are not good, you may find it hard working here.

    I have been working at Holborn Assets full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working at Holborn Assets has revolutionised the way that i view the financial services industry. The way the company supports you and provides the structures to do things the right way the first time, has gone a long way towards restoring my faith in the financial services industry. The employees are friendly, and always ready and willing to help. They provide packages to employees which are unheard of in the industry and the transition into life in Dubai has been seamless and easy as a result.

    Cons

    If you are someone who likes to do your own thing and not report to a manager on your whereabouts then this company is not for you. The structures in place provide you all the opportunities to be successful, and as a result it is expected of you to follow the rules that are in place.

    I have been working at Holborn Assets for more than a year

    Pros

    Holborn Assets is an ambitious and driven organisation and they never stop looking for ways to enhance and expand the company, this consistent growth has created some great career development opportunities and the Senior Management is fully committed to helping everybody develop themselves and the business. There's a large team of experienced and very friendly employees who reflect Mr Parker's emphasis on Integrity and Respect. Personally I can't thank the organisation enough for giving me such a fantastic intern-ship opportunity, I feel valued and I am very optimistic about a future with the company. There are fantastic Facilities and infrastructure and a real sense of belonging to the business.

    Cons

    The only downside in my opinion is the length of the working day, with travelling time and traffic to contend with of an evening it can be late before returning home from work however this is entirely subjective to myself.

    I have been working at Holborn Assets

    Pros

    Over the past year working with Holborn, I have been given a great insight into the financial services industry. The company pays for you to sit your CISI exams and you can do as many or as little as you want. The structure of the company is so well thought out, there are great opportunities to exceed expectations and move up. Such a genuine company, all employees are a pleasure to work beside. Very good salary and benefits

    Cons

    I actually can't think of anything

    I have been working at Holborn Assets full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have worked at Holborn Assets in the Dubai office for a little over two years. Previously, I was working at another well known financial advisory company in the middle east, the difference between to the two is night and day. Holborn Assets holds values, family and expertise above anything else. I genuinely believe employees are looked after, and hard work is always rewarded.

    Cons

    Industry-wide problem of not enough female advisers.

    Pros

    Holborn Assets is a good place to work, management respect the people and their ideas, everyone treated fairly they pay substantially above market rates for both salaries and commissions. Very transparent and open company.

    Cons

    Lifts in the building are a nightmare, make sure you get in before rush hour at 9am or be prepared to walk 15 flights to the Holborn Assets offices :(
