Franklin Templeton is a good and productive workplace to work for. It's one of the largest investment company in the United States. It offered a lot off benefits. It's a great place to work if you like change and fast paced.
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.
The GTLEP Session was a great initiative as it helped me learn how actually the corporate culture works. The only thing which I felt lacking in Franklin Templeton was that it doesn't provide the employees with a much of a competition among themselves and promotions are not based on experience but are based on availability.
FT is one of the best place to work in financial industry. It provides exposure and excellence in understanding the mutual fund market. Only drawback is they don't give good hikes during yearly appraisal.
