Great Place To Work!
Senior Portfolio Administrator (Former Employee) –  Pasadena, CAMarch 1, 2016
I worked at Western Asset for almost a decade before I left. It's a great place to work. No real downside, except for the low turnover in management which prevents others from being able to occupy those roles. This is the only reason I left. Great company culture with good work/life balance. I would consider going back in the future if the right position is available.
Pros
Everything
Cons
Need people to leave in order to be promoted.

Senior Portfolio Administrator (Former Employee) –  Pasadena, CAMay 29, 2013
If I loved finance, this would have been the prefect job. Great benefits, competitive pay. Financial crush of 2008-2011 killed my financial spirit, though.

WAM was a good place to work. Relaxed environment for the most part. Top management is far from average workers though.

Good place for a few years before you realize it's not going anywhere
Risk Management (Former Employee) –  Pasadena, CAAugust 20, 2012
WAMCO still manages to impress recruiters, but the company has some serious problems when it comes to its management team and the lack of career advancement for most employees. I was fortunate to have a great group of coworkers that made my time there tolerable and even fun at times.
Pros
bonuses and benefits
Cons
lack of career advancement, short-term management thinking, hiring on the cheap
