2017

"M&G is very diverse and has worked hard to be very inclusive as well. Many different committees (Pride committee for the LGBT community and a multicultural network to celebrate diversity within the company) are present and organise many events."
Graduate, London
"The commitment is very good and my investment graduate intake was over half female. However, there is still the usual imbalance at the senior ranks (noting that our CEO is a woman)."
Graduate, London
"Massive efforts are made, with Pride and a women's network being very well promoted and made available. Mental health issues are prominent too."
Graduate, City of London
"While asset management has not historically been the most diverse industry, there are many initiatives within M&G and Prudential (our parent company) to promote diversity."
Graduate, London
"As with the rest of the City, diversity remains an issue as the profession remains dominated by white middle-aged men. At an entry level, you can tell that diversity is an important criterion for recruitment."
London
"It's increasingly more diverse with support networks specifically for women and LGBT etc. The company recognises the importance of having a good work/life balance and spending time with your family."
Graduate, London
"M&G is making an effort to improve diversity for women, minorities and LGBT with targeted recruitment events. There's still work to do but I am strongly passionate about the cause as I identify as LGBT myself."
Graduate, London

2016

"This is apparently one of the best places to work if you have children. There is a generous maternity leave package and lots of parents work flexible hours. It being investment management, there are still certain departments that are male heavy. However, HR does work to recruit females and encourage interest in pre-university students."
Graduate, London
"Still mostly white men at the senior levels but there's very active recruitment of diverse graduates and new employees. Our newly appointed CEO is female, a big statement."
Graduate, London
"Great steps are being taken to improve diversity and inclusion, with dedicated employees working towards it. The M&G pride LGBT group holds events that are always incredibly successful and have now branched out to an 'allies' network for those who don't identify as LGBT to show their support. Women in finance is an industry-wide issue. It's great to see that M&G is focusing on how to change this by targeting young women before they are put off the industry."
HR, Graduate, London
"Limited exposure to this but there are frequent LGBT events and we have one of the first female CEOs in the City, which is a very positive sign."
Graduate, London
"A diverse set of employees from different backgrounds from all over the world."
Finance, Graduate, London
"Although M&G is committed to diversity, many of the senior roles are still dominated by white males. However, this is changing."
Graduate, London

2014

"Diversity is very high among the graduates - they are taken from all sorts of (mainly European) countries. It is lower among the more senior people, as may be expected. I do not know the attitude towards childcare or maternity leave, though many of those on maternity leave do seem to return."
Graduate, London
"There aren't many women or minorities in my area but I feel it's a fair representation of the demographic that applies to the industry as a whole and not a reflection on the firm."
Graduate, London
