What makes Franklin Templeton a great place to work?

The culture at FT is collaborative, supportive and inclusive; the leaders are approachable and human. Individuals’ personal development is valued, with opportunities for varied and dynamic internal career paths tailored by career preferences. I know it sounds cliché, but it’s the people that make FT an EXCELLENT place to work.

Why did you join FT?

I was called in for a few interviews and during the process I had the chance to meet some of the people I would be working with, all of whom made such a good impression on me! I really felt like I would learn and grow under their leadership. And when I finally got the offer, I just couldn’t pass it up. So I took a leap of faith, quit my job (after 16 years at the same company), and moved our household back to the US. So far I feel like it is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I love the company, I love the people and I love what I do. I have absolutely no regrets.
