Administrative Assistant in Technology (Former Employee) – Stamford, CT – July 2, 2018
My typical day at the office was providing administrative support to the Planning Team. It was great working with everyone on supporting the bank as they were the client and it was our job to provide the utmost highest technology support.
Management is understanding and fair. The workplace culture within the office is healthy. The expectations to work with the highest integrity, have good values and respect.
Flexible hours are offered and are very useful for when you have to take care of your children or parent.
Flexible hours and work remote, good benefits and employee discounts
Senior Risk Analyst (Current Employee) – United States – July 26, 2018
I contributed so many great ideas to the organization. Managers (outside of portfolio management) are afraid to recognize a job well done to staff. The company is great but the departmental managers on the non-investment side need serious work if the company wants to continue to attract and retain engaged talent.
VP/Mgr of Global Asset Mgmt Fair Valuation (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 11, 2018
Continuous change is the Legg Mason motto until the vision of the best company is realized. These transitions come at a cost to all divisions and technology. But with great change comes great rewards. I felt great rewards completing the multiple compliance/ due diligence tests. and meeting the deadlines timely.
My management team was fair and supportive, very competitive and stressful environment was tempered by a fun atmosphere and good benefits, employee engagement, etc. Lots of room to move around and upwards -- I had to leave because I was at the top so to speak and had nowhere to go. HR did try and help me move elsewhere within the company.
Internal Sales Director (Current Employee) – Stamford, CT – August 30, 2017
Transitioning company in a competitive industry. Management not good. They have way too many products to the point you are a master of none. Forces you to sell their fund of the month/quarter. Salary and compensation quotes were not met once fully ingrained in the job
Working at a smaller branch does not offer all the perks that you might get working at one of the larger offices around the world. However, working in a small team did offer the opportunity to do the work of all possible departments (e.g. Sales, Client Service, Accounting, Legal, HR, Facilities, Marketing, IT) and thus, learning about all the different parts of the business.
Analyst, Global Business Intelligence team (Current Employee) – Stamford, CT – April 1, 2017
Legg Mason is a solid company to work for. They have a great culture and benefits for their employees. Management is good but is spread thin due to such a lean structure. If you work hard and are active within the company you can learn a lot.
I think it's good to get to know your employees, and create some Work Place value. We've lost touch with Value or Loyalty to one's time and dedication. So, overall, I just hope one day we get back to appreciating, OR HONORING DEDICATION.
Excellent workplace. Supported key high-level executives, business-wise and some personal. Workload was reasonable and interesting. Friendly, cooperative co-workers. The hardest part of the job was there was no hard part of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job was supporting interesting, dynamic, intelligent people.
Manager of Shipping/Receiving -IT Department (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – October 8, 2014

Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 18, 2014
This company was acquired by Legg Mason. I held many challenging positions at Citigroup. It helped me learn all aspects of the administrative field and helped move up in my career. The hardest part in one of my roles here was when a co-worker left for long-term disability and I fulfilled two roles at one time. Also, facing the disaster recovery after Sept. 11, where we were located at 7 World Trade Center.
I never went home stressing in all my years. This was my first real job and from stocks bonds us treasuries, sales data entry, micro fiche, operational duties and various departments. Management was the best, the only thing looking back about hardest was the first month getting started as a young women learning it all. My most enjoyable part of my job was the managers and co workers. It felt like family and we all worked great together.

Assistant Vice President - Accounting Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 5, 2014
A typical day at work would be adjusting and /or reviewing fund budgets. I learned more than I could have ever imagined at Legg. I was exposed to many aspects of the Funds as well as different departments. 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 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.
