I joined Franklin Templeton because of the firm's long history, solid reputation and global presence
The company is well-known, respected and has attracted very bright minds. Franklin Templeton offers clients a comprehensive range of investment solutions from around the world, providing a unique work experience to employees in all departments. The Total Rewards program is particularly appealing, allowing me to participate in the Employee Stock Investment Program, purchasing company shares semi-annually at a discounted price, in addition to investing in Franklin Templeton mutual funds at discounted fees.
I love my job/working at Franklin Templeton because of the people, opportunities and overall commitment to achieving quality results.
I get to work with colleagues locally and around the world, collaborating on ideas, sharing best practices and executing business strategy. Opportunities abound given the various departments, locations and courses provided at the company. I have greatly benefited from participating in and networking at the in-class training sessions, which feature internal or external facilitators. Solutions to challenges are encouraged and recognized, opening doors to participate in exciting projects and work with fellow employees internationally.
Did you feel welcomed when you joined the company? What was your onboarding experience like?
Joining Franklin Templeton was very exciting. I received extensive training and support from both my manager and team members. The new hire orientation was a highlight, where I received a tour of all the company's floors at my location alongside fellow new employees. I appreciated the opportunity to hear from guest speakers outside of my department, including a Compliance Analyst that I have since had the opportunity to work closely with and the Head of National Sales for Canada.
