ING IM -- mediocre compensation, vast uncertainty

  • Work/Life Balance

  • Senior Management
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

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 Management

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

    Pretty flexible with PTO. Decent benefits. Some areas have decent people. Other areas are full of unknowledgeable people who lack technical skills.

    Cons

    Management has focussed too much on budget versus prodcution and improvement. Offers on the low end for salaries compared to other Financial Services companies

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting time shifting responsibiltes to different areas in a game of musical chairs. It just causes more problems. Define roles and responsibilies based on peoples jobs
