    I have been working at Holborn Assets full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Been with Holborn Assets 8 years and wouldn't go anywhere else. Common knowledge that it is the best employer in the market and really goes above and beyond to look after its financial advisers. Very focused on education and training and pay for all your exams and qualifications.

    Cons

    Can be too laid back, people are seemingly allowed to wander in late and take days off without any consequences.

    Advice to Management

    Have more group get together's between teams.

    Management support, back office support, training, ongoing support, family run business, feels like a family, further development through education and qualifications

    Cons

    pathetic competition trying to slander the name through jealousy

    Advice to Management

    If you keep reinvesting in the staff and business like you are you will be a juggernaut in the arena... so I thank you for including me in the plans... also, my manager is possibly the best manager I have ever come across... he has nothing but time, respect and knowledge which he offers you in abundance...

    I worked at Holborn Assets part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly company with a nice team of people who were happy to help me with career advice and share. They pay the best rates in the market and is a rapidly growing company (this was the Dubai office) lots of events outside the office that are all paid for by Holborn Assets which are not mandatory but lots of people get involved

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of

    - Politics by admin staff who has been working there longer, causing gossip and badmouthing people

    - Lots of 'immediate supervisor' where you get orders from

    Advice to Management

    Review your salary range for people who are working for you and don't listen to all side story rather do your own investigation.

    I worked at Holborn Assets as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working at Holborn Assets was an exciting experience as not only did I get to work with lots of different people and learn lots of different things about Digital Marketing, but I also got to travel to Dubai & Sri Lanka and work among many different cultures. The work I was given was also very interesting and there was a lot of freedom to try your own ideas and think outside of the box.

    Although very much a corporate environment, the Digital Marketing department was very nice to work in as it follows more of a 21st century Google type approach to work, such as smart casual instead of that dreaded suited, booted and constrained to a desk all day approach.

    The managers I had were also very fun, friendly and would sure love to work with them all again and go for a few drinks down at the Crown & Lion in Dubai or Cheers Bar in Sri Lanka :)

    Cons

    The lifts in the Dubai office take sooo long.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for a great internship! Maybe see you round when I get back after university!

    Pros

    Great working environment, supportive management team and always looking to put clients needs first to continue building their excellent reputation in the market place.

    Cons

    The lifts in the building can be time consuming in the morning.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you are doing.
