Pros: great boss
Cons: cuts and change
A typical day at work would be adjusting and /or reviewing fund budgets. I learned more than I could have ever imagined at Legg.

Management tried hard to keep up with the changes but ultimately all the cuts really put a lot of pressure on the employees. My co workers were really – more... nice, hardworking people. The hardest part of the job was wondering what was coming down the pike next. What was being eliminated, changed and/or introduced. Not knowing what was happening next was really hard. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with a great boss and group. We really stuck together and made the best out of every situation. – less
