Records Manager | Rancho Cordova, CA | Jan 24, 2022
Fair pay, annual bonus, EXCELLENT benefits and work/life balance but little to no advancement opportunities.
Working at Franklin Templeton was a very positive experience for me. I started as a temp and at the end of my contract I was offered a full time, permanent position. The work was not difficult but not exciting either. In the 6 years I worked there I was chosen for one promotion; from a mail room associate to a processor. I excelled at my job and received very high scores from my supervisors during my annual reviews. Unfortunately, the company kept shifting more and more work overseas. Eventually all transaction processing moved to India and Poland and the US portion of my department was phased out. I managed to keep my job by going back to work in the mail room but a lot of my coworkers were forced to find new jobs or take a lesser position in the call center. Now, most recently, Franklin Templeton has decided to use a third party transfer agent and my job is being phased out again. Franklin negotiated with the third party company to keep all of us as employees which is great but learning about this company's policies and benefits they offer, just makes me realize how great I had it with Franklin Templeton.
ProsBenefits (medical, dental, vision, 401k match, ESIP), paid vacation time, annual bonuses, on campus Cafe and gym
ConsVery few entry-level positions in the United States and little to no opportunities for advancement.
Senior Technology Analyst | San Mateo, CA | Dec 21, 2019

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.

Vice President | Saint Petersburg, FL | Feb 5, 2018
Stressful and political
Stressful and political, long hours due to staff reductions, push to offshore almost every staff position in order to reduce cost even though work quality suffered.
ProsRemote work at certain levels
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.
Incident Manager | Rancho Cordova, CA | Aug 13, 2019

Open, Transparent & Respectful work culture
This is a company that provides opportunities that match the amount of effort you put. For the aspirational only sky is limit if your goals are minimal and there is space for that as well. Really a good time to remember in my career
Accounting Manager | Chennai, Tamil Nadu | Jan 15, 2020
This is a good company and brand to work for but the culture is biased. While the people have remained for years but the method of teaching and training for new comers especially from a different industry is poor.

Pool table
I enjoyed playing pool with other workers during breaks. Cafeteria was furnished with many different flavours of free teas and coffees. Several TVs were available with remote controls to watch any show of your choice.
Tax Trainee | Hyderabad, Telangana | Feb 10, 2020
A good company to start your career. Will come to know about corporate culture, ethics and knowledge. Management is good. Moreover the campus with pleasant ambience adds one more point.
Senior Marketing Analyst | Edinburgh | Mar 1, 2016
Franklin Templeton is a global company providing opportunity for young talent.
My work involved liaison with international teams. The work was achieved by telephone contact and use of Net meeting. My role was driven by deadlines and budget constraints. I learned how to bring the best out in people whilst dealing with them remotely. The hardest part was ensuring clear communication between myself and colleagues in other locations. The best part was completing a project together as a team comprised of individuals with diverse knowledge and skills.
