For the flexibility it provides, you may be sacrificing higher aspirations

Finance Manager (Current Employee)
City of London, England (UK)

I have been working at Legal & General Group

Pros- Friendly family-based culture;
- Sports facilities;
- Work-life balance;
- Multiple sites - Central London, Greater London; Home counties

Cons- Professionally skewed to Actuaries more than general management, Finance or Accountants;
- Development relies more on yourself than HR framework (Who you know rather than what you know, somewhat);
-

Advice to Senior Management- More investment in underlying systems and processes required - some reporting processes are prone to break-down and have key-man dependencies;
- Need to move away from a more traditional insurance company mindset to more modern financial institution mind-set;
- Still a very UK localised company with all major rivals having 'significant' International presence - Capital buffer should be used to diversify internationally - not just for presence but becoming a major player in some international market
- Become a more International/Global brand than a mere UK one after 175 years.
