I worked at Russell Investments as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

The people, environment, atmosphere, and culture at Russell is simply fantastic. Everyone you meet is extremely nice to interns and they'll go out of their way to help you or answer your questions. You can learn about many different things outside of your business unit if you choose to pursue that education.

Cons

The internship was in the progress of being remodeled, so it was still in the beginning stages and things were being hashed out. That being said, I believe the program is on the rise and will be much better moving forward from what I've seen.

    I worked at Russell Investments full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, friendly people, interesting work in the investment and money management profession. Great view of Puget Sound and Mt Rainier from the viewing deck.

    Cons

    Lightweight manager with little patience cut me loose after he realized that he had made a mistake in hiring me. "Open office" working conditions introduced by CEO at the time made the environment into a work floor full of sewing machines, not a professional venue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your managers in the art of interviewing and explaining a job's responsibilities. The man who interviewed me did not describe the job in sufficient detail. I probably would not have taken the job had I known what was involved.
