    I have been working at ING Investment Management Americas full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    company is becoming its own without Dutch Group sometime soon. 40 hr. volunteer / community paid off time per year

    Cons

    no one knows what kind of company will it turn out to be. Hired leaders talk the talk, and got paid handsomely to make company public, meanwhile company is quietly laying off people while overworked worker bees have no salary increases in years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't let company implode

    Pros

    Name Recognition
    Diverse Workforce
    Significant learning opportunities

    Cons

    Horrible Management-Especially in the PCF area
    Unstable Future
    No management accountability
    Very Unorganized
    Below Market Compensation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please eliminate the unprofessional middle management and work to boost employee morale. Force management to cut out the ridiculous politics and favoritism and focus on talent and innovation. Implement accountability on behalf of management.

    ING IM -- mediocre compensation, vast uncertainty

    I have been working at ING Investment Management Americas

    Pros

    Substantial investment capabilities, both in terms of technology and people. A consistent investment philosophy across the fixed income platform. Upside potential depending on growth of investment management business, rebranding of IM apart from banking and insurance. Good work/life balance relative to other investment management firms.

    Cons

    Vast uncertainty in terms of future of business, future of company, location of operations, etc. Marginal track record in most strategies. Political pressures from HQ in Netherlands impact pay, especially bonuses. Bitter office politics. Too much emphasis on seniority and "experience", not enough appreciation for talent, not enough effort to get the most out of everyone's skill set.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees what they deserve to be paid. If you pay mediocre wages/bonuses compared to competitors, you are doomed to work with mediocre talent, which ING IM is flush with at every level and job function in the firm.

    Pros

    Great Work Life Balanace and PTOs. You are free to take off whenever you need to leave the office.

    Cons

    Poor Leadership, Poor Performance, Poor Investment in Human Capital, Systems, and Resources. The condition of the business can only be described as on life support. If you need a paycheck this is ok, but only if you have no other options. Additionally, the majority of employees lack motivation and the desire to compete. Intellectual curiousity is not valued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hit the Reset Button. Poor Leadership is reflected in seriously negative employee morale. Given the last 2 years in the industry the place feels like a boneyard.
