How do you connect with co-workers in different offices?

Franklin Templeton being a global company has made it very easy to connect with others across the globe. I love when we have our Town Hall meetings and EVERYONE across the globe is on the call. It’s truly neat to be able to connect with my co-workers no matter the location. My team is also located in different parts of the US, so I am constantly in touch with them or other co-workers—whether that be through a call, video, or instant message chat. I also like to stay connected through Yammer, the company's social collaboration tool. It’s a great way to network or share common interests.

What makes Franklin Templeton a great place to work?

When I started at Franklin Templeton I was, and still am, extremely excited to be part of Global company, especially coming from a small family owned business. It’s exciting to be able to work with such a diverse group! Even though it’s a huge organization, Franklin Templeton and most importantly the people, have still made me feel as if I am part of a genuinely connected family. Everyone is always so helpful and supportive. At the end of the day it is the people that make Franklin Templeton a great place to work!

Why did you join FT?

I joined Franklin Templeton because I wanted to be a part of a global, diverse culture where I had the opportunity to learn and grow. Franklin Templeton has delivered all of that and more. The opportunities, learning resources, and support to reach your goals are endless, and the diverse culture is very exciting!
