Work culture: what's unique?


We operate with a "no chalk" principle, respecting ethical boundaries and doing the right thing for our clients and each other.


We value partnership within and across our multi-manager business, and foster a diverse, supportive environment.


Collectively and individually we all must take ownership for delivering results. Our passion for results drives our execution and performance in what we do for our clients, our shareholders, our communities and one another.

Supporting Our Employees

Much effort and care is taken to acquire and retain people of a high and like-minded standard. Our employee resource groups, continuing education and professional development help you thrive professionally — a reward in itself.

Global Total Rewards

Benefits to your well-being

The workplace continues to change just as rapidly as our business does. Just as we seek innovative solutions for our clients, we want to foster an innovative workplace that invests to improve the lives of our dedicated employees. 

Our Total Rewards are designed with programs and policies that empower our diverse employees with choice, support holistic wellness, and empower workplace agility and innovation.


Your success – at home or at work – starts with good health. As a full- or part-time employee, you and your eligible dependents/domestic partners receive comprehensive medical, dental and vision coverage. You can also take advantage of our wellness program, discounted fitness-club memberships, Weight Watchers at Work, and more.

Flexible Spending Accounts

We help you save money by setting aside pretax dollars for anticipated Health Care and Depen­dent Care expenses.


Workplace Flexibility

We understand juggling work and home can be challenging, and that is why, where possible, we strive to offer employees a level of flexibility to help balance home life with work. Depending on your role,  you may be eligible to work flex hours and/or work remotely from time to time. Additionally, membership fees for a large global network of child, elder, home and pet caretakers are also paid by Legg Mason on behalf of employees.

Paid Time Off (PTO)

We know you need downtime to take care of the things that are important to you. Whether it’s for vacation, personal and family needs or illness, we provide paid time off to all our regular employees. Employees may receive 22-33 PTO days per year, depending on status and length of service. 

Paid Parental Leave

Legg Mason offers an industry-leading policy to enhance work/life balance for parents welcoming a new child. Our Paid Parental Leave benefit allows ALL parents up to twelve (12) weeks of paid time at 100% of base salary for a qualifying event.  Further, Legg Mason will reimburse expenses related to shipping breast milk home to a child for mothers that are traveling after returning to work.

Education and Development

Continue your career growth through our tuition reimbursement program, as well as in-house classes and experiential training. We have a culture of intellectual curiosity and learning, and we offer employees $8,000 per year in tuition reimbursement, as well as other learning opportunities.


Consistent with our mission of Investing to Improve Lives, Legg Mason matches employee charitable contributions, provides employees with an additional day of PTO to volunteer, and coordinates a program to match employees with non-profit boards.

Commuter Programs

You can use pretax dollars to pay for commuting expenses, including transit passes and parking fees.



Our competitive compensation is designed to attract and engage talent that drives our business strategy. In addition to your salary, compensation may include discretionary incentive awards, commissions, and other monetary and non-monetary recognition programs. We remain committed to continuing to provide competitive total compensation.



Save for your retirement by participating in our 401(k) plan. You'll receive a 100% match on the first 3% of your eligible compensation that you contribute, and 50% on the next 3%.  Additionally, we offer an annual discretionary profit sharing program to further show our appreciation to our employees.
