I have been working at Russell Investments

Pros

There are a lot of nice, smart people you get to work with, and I've learned a lot about investments and the markets since I've worked here. All my managers have been great and have offered me flexible hours. Hard to find the same retirement, medical, and sabbatical benefits at other firms. I know that a lot of local people that wish they worked at Russell because it's such a great company but hard to get hired on.

Cons

The term "glacial change" comes to mind when I think of how slow it can be at times to get things to happen at Russell. IMHO, the company is in a sort of "awkward teenager" phase of growth, where they are too big to let things happen without a ton of manager approvals, but not big enough to invest in infrastructure and stream-lined processes that would make things go faster. This makes having executive support behind your initiatives critical to your job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep working on improving our technology and infrastructure, and on breaking down the silos to foster more innovation and collaboration between teams.

    Pros

    Pay is good relative to other opportunities in the area. Great exposure to different aspects of an investment management firm.

    Cons

    The company has become very bureaucratic
    Russell should still offer intern workshops where interns get a glimpse of other departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Russell should still offer intern workshops where interns get a glimpse of other departments. This used to learn about the business as a whole and network.
