Top notch talent pool in NY and UK

Very impressive investment management talent in NY and UK to learn from. Most people are approachable and collaborative. Better work life balance than an average NYC financial services shop. Good technology systems with no expense spared to ensure efficient processes.

Was ok but not that great.

Working at Shriners was quite stressful I was constantly given tasks that nobody else wanted to. I felt this mainly due to the fact that I was contractor. There were certain job functions that I couldn’t do again it was because I was a temp and could only access certain things therefore, I had to ask someone with access to help with certain tasks. That person only ever helped if she was in a good mood

Pros

Pay was good

Cons

No career advancement, no job security, contract was randomly ended when they longer need you

Good role challenging sponsor

Enjoyed working at Schroders. A typical day involved a morning meetings with sponsor, thereafter engaging with various stakeholders in workshops to secure requirements and secure sign off. The culture is very collaborative in nature, thus makes it easier to get things done. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the third party vendors. The most enjoyable part of the job was long lasting partnerships formed with colleagues.

Great company to work for but slow advancement

Schroders Investment Management Luxembourg has one of the best work atmospheres and cultures I have experienced. Great collaboration between teams and individuals. Work-life balance is good and the office is quite cosy. However, the size of the company makes advancement slow and difficult.

Double edged sword

A dynamic work environment, fast-paced requests to complete, rigid processes to follow. The team environment and culture is not great, as people usually act as separate units rather than a team.

An exciting and dynamic environment to work in.

Working on the Front of House team no two days were ever the same. The team was always changing and as the Assistant Manager and needed to think on my feet, encourage the team and make sure that an excellent service was provided to the company. My manager was extremely supportive. Schroders always encouraged their employees to improve their knowledge. The hardest part of the job was to discipline my immediate team, making sure that personal appearance and customer service was of an extremely high standard. The best part of the role for me was dealing directly with the clients and ensuring that their visit to the company was a pleasure.

Pros

High quality in house catering. Good people to work with.

Cons

Long hours

Good benefits, but little career advancement

Good culture but a huge amount of change going on at the moment which makes for a very busy place to work. It is a very flat structure and there is little career advancement that takes place and stress levels high.

Pros

Good benefits

Cons

Little career advancement

Good work space, common areas, free coffee/ tea

Schroders is a good company to work for. The benefits package is good, we have dental, vision, medical, life insurance and 401k. The individuals that work at Schroders are great. Schroders N.A. has been in transition for over 5 years. There needs to be some direction soon

Pros

Good work environment, good people

Productive and fun place to work. Good atmosphere.

It was a 6 month temp position, which got extended. I worked on a desk with 2 others trade support specialists. I would set up new issues securities in Charles River in the mornings when I would get in. Take a look at any failed trades and resolve any issues. When London would open I would send over the trade confirmations and wait for instruction. The hardest part of the job I would say is that there was not much training and I kind of got thrown into the mix. It was more of a learn as you go kind of role.

Pros

Enjoyable people to work with.

Cons

Not much job training.
