Great Starting Job
TA - Client Representative (Current Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FLJune 10, 2017
Franklin Templeton is a well reputable, global financial institution. It has been a pleasure working for them. There benefits are great, but there compensation, as in salary, is definitely less than most major institutions in the same field. Hence, Franklin Templeton likes hiring individuals straight out of college so they can pay you less. However, there training program is terrific.
Pros
Great work, life balance
Cons
Short breaks, short lunch, low salary

A good place to start out and learn the basics
Transfer Agent Associate (Former Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FLJune 6, 2017
A company in which you can learn the basics of the mutual fund industry. They have an Uber conservative culture in which it is hard to grow as once you start on a track management tries to keep you there. The pay is also the worst in the industry so don't stay past learning the basics.

Contractor role
QA Tester (Former Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FLJune 2, 2017
Contract employee and was treated great! After a short amount of time, management realized that I was traveling several hours each day on my commute. I was allowed to work from home - in the beginning one day per week, then 2 days. Finally, I worked 100% of the time from home and loved it. I had a great manager that appreciated her employees - both permanent and contract. Great experience!
Pros
work from home

waste of time
Data Analyst (Former Employee) –  PoznanMay 3, 2017
maybe I was unlucky.

My team's supervisor was on leave for almost the entire time of my contract. So the team's direction and productivity suffered, also it was a chaotic time for my department, i.e. restructuring, layoffs, etc.

Senior Client Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Rancho Cordova, CAMay 1, 2017

Pros

National Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FLMay 1, 2017
In certain positions management and HR does a poor job of creating career advancement within the role. Example: levels such as Director, AVP, VP and Senior VP. Inflexible on title and role changes as salary requirements and goals are most important to limit compensation.
Pros
Good Culture
Cons
Low Compensation relatieve to other asset managers

Great learning environment
SENIOR ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FLApril 30, 2017
The job requires learning several proprietary software systems as well as the rules and regulations of the financial industry. Some of the training is accomplished through webinars. Each associate is a member of a team that supports each other and sometimes cross trains in the particular focus of the group. Individuals' productivity is tracked over time and these results are reviewed by supervisors at least annually.

Supervisors of each team changed over time but most were willing to assist members to accomplish the goals for that individual and/or the team.

The most enjoyable parts of the job were: learning new systems or ways to accomplish a task, working with other team members and with the customers (shareholders/ financial advisers). The greatest challenge was to complete the processes in the time expected.
Pros
Flex time offered
Cons
Time tracking

Facing headwinds
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FLApril 19, 2017
The financial services industry is going through a transition and it will be interesting to see how/if Franklin Templeton adapts to meet the needs of it's clients. Many investors are now interested in robo-advisors and are choosing to invest in low-cost passive ETFs.
