    Pros

    Almost everyone is very friendly, and easy to work with. A lot of management people started as an intern, and moved their way up to management positions, so the company has a strong internal growth. There are great training programs - Russell has a team that focuses on training employees in areas needed - and also has great programs for continuous education (ex. Grad school, CFA exam)

    Cons

    For college students - It's difficult to get hired into an entry level position unless you're already living in Seattle, WA. Which is the case for most companies. Most growth opportunity happens in the Seattle as that is the corporate headquarters. So if you're not interested in moving to Seattle, it'll be difficult to go up the corporate ladder.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Russell Investments.

    Interview

    I had a connection to the company, so before the interview, I went to meet with a recruiter, who asked me very basic questions. Ie: why russell, why finance, tell me about your resume. It was very relaxed. I then received an email with internship descriptions and told the recruiter I was interested. I came back the next week for an interview. It was very non-technical and non-behavioral. The entire interview was about data analysis, because it was central to the role I was applying for. I haven't received an offer yet, but they said I would hear back within two weeks.
