    I have been working at Redington Ltd. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very open and approachable leadership - I've been able to hold regular conversations with the leadership informally and formally and even received feedback on my performance from senior leadership - which companies can boast that flat an employee structure?! Driven and intelligent colleagues to work with - I've worked at another consultancy before working here and found the people at Redington to be much more driven, with a broader range of skills and a experience. Opportunities to get involved everywhere in the business - there are a lot of committees so if you want to do something, all you have to do is put your hand up. The teams are also much smaller so you'll be exposed to a much broader range of experiences and can take up more responsibility with the necessary support available if you need it. You do need to be the type of person that can work independently but if you can do that, there are plenty of opportunities to get stuck in to. Great technology and flexibility within the firm.

    Cons

    Career progression has slowed down slightly since I joined - that can be a positive as well as it ensures those who are more senior in the business have the necessary experience to be held accountable for their decisions.

    "A fun, intellectually stimulating environment with people who are open to feedback"

    I have been working at Redington Ltd. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    People in finance like to say they have a 'flat hierarchy' a lot. This is the first place I've worked at where that is true. MDs will listen and engage with junior people's opinion whether that is on client work or how the business is run. Senior leadership genuinely care about every employee. To secure investment they worked very long hours because this was what was best for the company to ensure its long-term financial viability. One year, when there was a smaller bonus pool for various reasons, directors in the company sacrificed their bonus to not penalise junior people prohibitively. Senior leadership certainly aren't perfect, but they are willing to take on feedback and improve. This is a very rare trait for people in a position of authority. For example, initially firmwide updates were poorly run. The senior leaders have genuinely worked on improving this in response to feedback and done a great job of improving this. There is a great learning environment. Redington has employees with 30+ years in finance at amazing organisations (Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley etc. etc.) Any of them will be more than happy to have a catch up with you. The company treat you like an adult, if you come to work, do your job well then managers will be flexible with you, allowing you to work from home (within reason). Other glass door reviews talk about this not being the case, from my experience there is genuinely no 'facetime' culture. I've made some genuine friends here - the environment means there is a great balance between 'being professional' and 'being yourself.' The work is genuinely very interesting, with real-world implications. There is a genuine social value in the work the company does - though recognising it is not a charity! I would recommend this firm to anyone.

    Cons

    Senior leadership are working to address this and have made genuine improvements, however I feel more needs to be done on hiring more diversely at junior levels. As with any organisation there are individuals who do not work together well with other members in the team. However I have experience of giving feedback to a more senior person and it being addressed in good time. Work life/balance can be tricky. I feel the flexibility you are given makes up for this and given all the other benefits (including a ridiculously good pension) this is not the worst problem in the world. More efficient working practices means this has improved over time.

  10. "Great culture, excellent reputation, exciting growth prospects"

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Redington Ltd. full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - Industry reputation as a high quality, premium provider has meant steady year-on-year growth in both revenues and margins - Recent acquisition by private equity is a strong vote of confidence in the business and should provide a solid platform for further growth - Has done a pretty good job of preserving culture as the company grows - there is relatively little internal politics and a sense of family/community where people look out for each other [as indicated by a couple of recent reviews, this view is not universally shared among staff but my sense is the issues they mention are isolated to certain teams] - Combination of fast growing firm and flat hierarchy means there are good opportunities for personal growth and taking on responsibility at an early stage in one's career. - Exceptional feedback from clients on both service standards and investment outcomes delivered. There is a real sense of purpose where staff care about delivering great outcomes for clients, not just hitting profit targets. - Competitive pay - base salaries are similar to competitors but bonuses tend to be higher and promotions are quicker. - Although working hours can be long in the busy periods, there is good support for flexible working and no "face time" culture

    Cons

    - Innovative culture can mean fixating on the latest flavour of the month idea at the expense of more gradual but easier to implement improvements. - Fragmentation of IT systems can cause frustration - e.g. same piece of data has to be saved/inputted to multiple systems, key documents can take ages to locate etc. - L&D has historically been less structured than peers with more reliance on "on-the-job" training. This can be stressful if one is not a self-starter.
