“The overriding reason for me joining M&G was the culture. I had spoken to a number of people before the interview and they all said the same thing: its not a big over-the-top unfriendly corporate, it’s a place you really get to know the people you work with. I work directly with an Equity Partner who is both my boss and my mentor, and I love it. Working with people at all levels of the business means you really get to understand projects you’re working on from start to finish – which at graduate level is pretty rare.”
