This company is very by the book with their approach to everything, and they will not give you the time of day unless you can drop names or make their high demands in production.

Financial Analyst Intern | San Mateo, CA | Apr 19, 2013
Valuable exposure to different areas of the asset management industry.
My main responsibilities as an intern in Franklin Templeton's GTAA Group was directed toward using a new software called EndNote to organizing thousands of document, that they use in their financial modeling process, into certain taxonomies that makes future accessibility easier. Because I was primarily the only one using this software everyday I had to manage my own workflow, yet keep a flexible and adaptive game plan to achieve my goals. Also, with management having demanding work schedules I had to be aggressive and work independently through obstacles, but used collaboration and teamwork to enhance my job duties.

Marketing Communications Manager | Saint Petersburg, FL | May 16, 2014
Nice environment but beware of job security
I worked at Franklin Templeton as a contractor for a year and a half.
As a contractor you are not involved in most company meetings, obviously can not share in the benefits and are kept out of the culture loop. Upper management must watch the bottom line since they are a finance company and are publicly traded so many people come and go depending on the budget.
ProsFree coffee and tea, great cafe and gym on premises, decent pay and great benefits
Consvery litlle job security, no contact with upper management
Real Estate Manager | Rancho Cordova, CA | Jul 29, 2020

Great place to work with great benefits. Facilities Management lacks corporate management skills. No advancement opportunities in the Corporate Real Estate and Facilities departments.
ProsCafe and gym on site. Campus is nice and close to other businesses
Conslots of weekend work with no compensation
