I recently joined SEI on a 5 week contract, which got extended to 3 months and then 6.
The company has no structure or organisation and it is constantly dealing with problems as they have not put correct procedures in place.
Processes they use are outdated, a few members of management are good- the others just sit in meetings all day, talking, when they should be more involved with the staff and asking them questions.
My co-workers were lovely.
The ability to move up the ladder with SEI is next to impossible, have spoken to people who have been there 3 years and had previous experience and not moved an inch.
I wanted more training on other areas to enhance my knowledge but nobody seemed to have the time to do that.
I am hard working, motivated, confident and always put 100% into a job, this was not recognised at SEI, probably due to my age, they just think I am inexperienced and useless.
Great place to get a job for a 6 month intership, but if you are looking as a potential career path, especially in operations, dont bother.
Get a trainee broker role and be pushed in financial sales.
