Pros

Russell truly focuses on their employees and often bend over backwards for associates to have a work life balance. Transition from the Russell family oversight to NML have contributed to some unfortunate decions that were directly attributed to high attrition. As such, they do struggle with a loss of the original culture that made this firm what it once was. Bottom line, they don't just pay lip service to the comment "we put our employees first" as other firms in the industry do. This directly relates to how happy employees there are, why they stay there so long, and how well the clients are treated as a result.

Cons

Passive aggressive communcation style allowed by managment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote those that earn their place, not those who are socially the best connected with managers.

    I worked at Russell Investments as an intern (less than an 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.
