pull your weight, support a good manager, get rid of a useless one, be inclusive and address a poor performance straight away.
Worked for the company for over 10 years, seen all the recent changes. Management was useless, in constant meetings about nothing. Clueless bunch... used to be a nice i place to work... If you are a great people manager or you are lucky enough to get one, you’ll have a great time, enjoy your job and have good work/home life balance. Otherwise you’ll be dreading going to your desk as there is no one to ask, no proper training given , no development, except for the chosen ones.So my advice is, pull your weight, support a good manager, get rid of a useless one, be inclusive and kind, however address a poor performance straight away, either by offering help or an additional training. To be fair, I left a few years ago now and truly hope things have improved! Still love the place and my hardworking colleagues!
Interesting job, opportunity to move internally between departments, opportunity to join volunteer schemes, Employee Benefits
As at any large organisation, any improvements or changes take place slowly, Not always addressing bad performance appropriately, and In my opinion it affects morale. no more free/bonus shares for employees at the end of the year, thanks to CEO
Hire temps &Then they get let go Because your not good enough even tho You’ve been hitting targets etc. They keep you longer than your contract,take ages to get this updated And say that it might be permanent they they get rid of you. They will always keep you as you are, there will be no promoting.
Great place to work form Job Live Balance Lots to learn a really forward thinking Company to Work For Management really take the time to get to know people Great place for advancement but not a moment Good Team Ethos all very collaborative
At the moment I am working on several projects. I prioritise my work in the morning. I quality check my colleague's work and authorise payments for each project. I keep an eye on the team's mailbox during the day for any urgent emails. I then process customer income drawdown requests in order for members to access their pensions at age 55. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping and training other colleagues in the processes that I have learnt.
This is a great company to work for and that value your hard work. The hours are flexible and support and training at the highest standards. The engagement for the staff is amazing. If this is a job where you want to progress then this is a good choice.
Free Lunch and well paid overtime
The office culture is fantastic. Friendly, very professional and fun to work in. Exceptionally good training and on-going support. Management recognise and reward great service appropriately.
Great staff, great support, fun environment
Pro's - Good company benefits, Group IP, CIC & Life. 25 days holiday for all staff when they join. Agile working more commonplace Con's - Departmental managers out of touch with area, staff bullying commonplace and many members of staff are off with work related stress/anxiety. Company produces the right soundbytes online and through comms, but due to fear culture, people too worried about losing pay/bonus to speak up against bullying.
Out of touch senior managers
Help us improve!
Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
Legal & General are a great place to work. Very alive to modern working practices, discipline but not hidebound. Management by results, rather than personalities. I would heartily recommend them as an employer, and would return there at any time.
Well qualified, disciplined structure
Few, can be a bit limiting to a particular specialism.
Making changes to adapt to new digital age. Can be like turning a super tanker but right leadership in place to make it happen. Culturally it be a shock but it can happen.
Flexible working from home/ office. Hove is a great office
More senior you are the work
A typical day for me is hard to summarise as my role is very varied currently! I split my time between meetings, development, working at my desk on in groups on a range of different things! Thoughout my time in the business I have worked hard and been rewarded for it. Team and Senior Managers are supportive and promote a great working environment. Staff are encouraged to contribute ideas and to help the department evolve and grow. The atmosphere is a very supportive one in the department i worked in and I can recommend it.
On a typical day i took about 30 calls from customers and IFA's. I learned so much about financial products and investing money. I loved everyone in my team and there was always a nice atmosphere.
good working hours
some of the rules
A typical day consists of receiving and making phone calls to policyholders and independent financial advisors. Processing requests received in the post regarding the policies dealt with in my team. Maturing, surrendering policies, fund switching, and finding lost policies. I learnt to manage my time effectively for maximum productivity. Trained on as many processes as was allowed to further my knowledge on the products and procedures. Management is always supportive in my personal development and very encouraging. The most difficult part of the job was trying to be as productive as possible whilst dealing with system problems. The most enjoyable part of my job was being part of a very diverse and interesting team.
Supported personal development
Only offered me a contract position
