Cons: poor management, negative atmosphere, insane amounts of work
Some coworkers are ok but for the most part, it's about as positive an environment as a DMV. Absolutely no work life balance and no support from senior management. The company is focused on cost cutting and reporting positive results to the parent co., resulting in everything being underfunded and no investment in employees, education, technology or – more... work tools. – less
Supervisor (Former Employee), Toronto Ontario – August 11, 2013
Pros: everything it was a great place to work
Cons: when the markets went down.
I worked here before I had children. I dedicated everything to my job. I had wonderful management to work under. I advanced in a short time due to my dedication and my work ethic. Left due to pregnancy and a move far away.
Was once a great company with Christian values. No longer
Mailroom Clerk (Current Employee), Toronto, Ontario – January 21, 2013
Pros: gym and benefits
Cons: politics, lack responsible of leadership and no room for advancement
A typical day of work used to be full on enjoyment and motivation. There were many opportunities and there were leaders that laid the foundations for a prosperous future. Coming to work was a pleasure, with many chances to learn things. Co workers now and then were like family. The difference is the leaders now did not earn or learn their positions. – more... They undermine the performance of staff heckling and bullying them. Destroying all motivation to advance, and protecting their own interests rather than protecting the company and it's staff. If audit were to ask them the workings of the company, it's policies and their functions and how they add value to the company, there would be a no answer. This is the hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job is enjoying what little of the past company lingers. – less
Senior Technical Project Manager (Current Employee), San Francisco, CA – June 26, 2014
Franklin Templeton is a great company!
I am proud of what I accomplished at this company in the almost 2 years I worked here.
Remote access enabled me to work from locations all over the world and allowed me to get to know my team and how they where best motivated to reach our objectives. My team was globally located which was a pro when it came to – more... installs, testing, and release of the systems we rolled out to the globally located end users.
Process are well defined and mentors are available for questions when you begin. This allowed me to easily train new sub-project PM's when hired.
