Investec has 3 days for insight, and I learned many things about investment management knowledge and learned how to exchange ideas in a good way for people from various backgrounds.

Investec Asset Management is a faced paced environment to work in. Managers and employees can be very direct with extremely high expectations, so you must be thick skinned as it is unlikely that you will be thanked for your efforts but this is not personal.

Investec is a great place to work. There is a friendly, collaborative culture where you are free to innovate, create and build solutions. Like all large organisations, there are often deadlines to be met - but with a heavy team culture, people are rarely on their own to deliver.
Pros
Great culture
Cons
None

Like all companies they have their limitations but the core mindset is fantastic and allows the company to slowly react to any issues. Have made some fantastic friends there and improved my life as a whole due to my time here.

My experience at Investec PLC was exceptional. I enjoyed going to work. The workplace culture is quite relaxed and far from traditional, but maintains professionalism.

Excellent work/life balance and work culture. Sadly, there's no much room for career and advancement. You can be stuck in the same role. There's a feel of discrimination.
Pros
Free coffees, cheap canteen, super clean office
Cons
Favoritism towards people coming from South Africa.

IW&I is the best employer I've worked for in the 4 years I've been in the UK (3 different companies). They have a strong family-like culture, they greatly respect work-life balance and offer a good compensation, bonus and rewards package.
There are multiple opportunities to learn and develop and management is giving their best to support every employee.
Pros
Culture, salary, work-life balance
Cons
Lack of clarity about career progression

It's a good company but not much growth potential in the current role. There isn't very much culture, people tend to keep to themselves. The hours are good - 9-5, however there is often more work to do so later evenings.

Awful budget process, lack of rigid deadlines and processes
