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.

    Pros

    Some of the best reason to work for ING Investment Management of Americas are the people. The Management team; very approachable and really care about what the employees' think. In this tough economic times, it is important for management to pay attention to morale. ING is a company that cares about employee morale and create opportunities for employees' to get involved in community service.

    Cons

    One of the downsides of working at ING Investment Management is the lack of communication with other ING departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When a customer calls for account information, each division of ING should be able to look up customer information and direct the customer to the correct department. In the customers' eyes, there should be "1" ING...

    Pros

    Will sponsor for licenses and pay for CFA society dues. Pay is pretty decent. The culture in the Denver office was extremely way too layed back. They do give you a lot of flex time. Have a decent facility with a gym. They took care of all my annual dues for my professional licenses, 7, 63, 24, CFA; which can become pretty expensive. Used to also have very good holiday parties until this past year. Small group in Denver and it was a pretty close knit group of professionals that for the most part got along very well. Seemed to be very supportive of your family.

    Cons

    far to many meetings; every decision from strategy down to where to go to lunch is decided by having a meeting to discuss. Then you usually have a post meeting to discuss the effectiveness of the prevous meeting. Too much politics going on in the group. Found a few of the executives to not be very knowledgable and/or caring. They seemed to disappear for long perionds of time. As I said before, everything seemed to run off of meetings. Way too many meetings and they'd bring into the meetings that weren't even relevant. Not very honest and upfront when it came to bonus expectations and or salary reveiws.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of derivatives that you don't understand the risks. You didn't understand the risks and have subsequently been downgraded for having high exposure to Alt-A and subprime loan exposure in their portfolios. There ALM strategic asset approach is very poor and they have serious liquidity issues and capital adequacy challeges ahead in the future.
