I worked at London & Partners full-time for more than 5 years
Everyone who works at London & Partners has got there by merit and, as such, you have a clever group of people who are enthusiastic about what they do and love telling London's story brilliantly.... This means there is always high energy around L&P with lots of activations happening across all different departments. Their is a great sense of collaboration throughout the organisation and most projects involve many strands of the business, which in turn allows for lots of creativity and ideas. I also liked the way in which L&P approached process management; basing decisions on data, research, insights and analytics; using Agile as a methodology to always keep current; and employing the right tools at the right time. L&P also has a great network which is can tap into. This is one of its major strengths. L&P does not have the budgets of a large, private company so utilises its influence and collaboration mechanisms to optimise as much as possible. Additionally, I liked the iPad coffee machine; the generous holiday allowances; the flexible working (working from home two days a week); the open plan office with an amazing view; the opportunities to enjoy and explore London as part of work; the occasional mass gatherings for quizzes, charities, holiday and national days celebrations. London & Partners has a good social responsibility running through it too, offering staff the opportunity to use volunteer days, having corporate charities chosen each year (with fundraising targets attached), and other initiatives. L&P also pushes the diversity agenda and is on its way to being more gender neutral in its opportunities.
The salaries at London & Partners are on the lower side of middling compared with others in the private sector. The "churn" at L&P is remarkably high and I worry that so many good people... are leaving without any attempt to keep them. That's great knowledge walking right out of the door. I think a piece of work needs to be commissioned, perhaps externally, to look into how the various departments and overseas posts can work better together because I see lots of opportunities being lost in translation when different departments work in silos. Although the company's annual conference is a great opportunity for everyone to meet and connect, I think the ideas and creativity that comes out of those conferences doesn't go anywhere. It's where good ideas go to die. Additionally, I am not a big fan of the CEO. Although she has had some sensible ideas since joining the company, I feel she has little compassion for or awareness of the people who work for her.
Advice to Management
Learn from past projects. Write things down. Constantly review. Refine and readjust constantly. And keep hold of all the good people who work for you.
