    I have been working at Man Group full-time

    Pros

    Flat management structure; relaxed atmosphere; good initiatives around diversity and inclusion; senior management very open about the company's performance and direction.

    Cons

    No formal appraisal process or setting of objectives so linking your performance to reward is mostly a matter of guesswork, at best. Still plenty of big egos kicking around.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Man Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Bright people, often interesting work, reasonable hours, pay good for some, very friendly, open, collaborative atmosphere.

    Cons

    - Business is more sales focussed than research focussed. - (Rightly) doesn't use shiniest newest tech everywhere but likes to pretend that it does. - Tech often patronised by fancy toys (eg 3d printer) as if this makes up for lack of salary increases. - Refusal by senior management to talk about areas of failure honestly to the employees, as if no one would notice if its not mentioned.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Man Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial spirit, diversity of opportunity, willingness to support internal moves, occasionally interesting culture. A lot of fun, bright people. If you're in the right part of the business and friends with the right people can be very lucrative. Lunch budget is provided, although significantly less than it once was.

    Cons

    Highly political environment, senior management operate a very hedge fund approach which doesn't mix so well with a public company, very short term view, long working hours (in certain roles). Extreme discrepancies in terms of pay.

    I have been working at Man Group

    Pros

    A good firm with decent people - very sales driven and workers given freedom to work independently and contribute to the business. Senior management very approachable.

    Cons

    Likes to promote within - can be good but has led to underqualified people in certain positions. Historically, a lack of investment in people (and systems).
