Contact Center (Former Employee)
Des Moines, IA

I worked at ING Americas full-time for more than 3 years

ProsManagers recognize individual efforts and provided opportunities to participate in special projects.

ConsHard to get time off when you need it. Asked by management to voluntarily take time off when it was convenient for the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't lose sight that you need people to run your business. When I worked there people said they felt like just another resource as though they were property or an object.

IT architect at ING

IT Architect (Former Employee)

I worked at ING Americas full-time for more than 8 years

ProsHumane to employees, pace very relaxed.

ConsRan out of money to do new work in IT. Became a desert for architects. This may change but I have not heard anything like that.

Advice to Senior ManagementIn IT there is always a need for balance between the comfortable present focused on operational nuts, bolts, and pennies, and the enabling future which will provide the organization with a foundation to grow. Hard to accomplish the latter without a lot of money - but you sure won't get there at all without visionaries and architects....

Service by the metrics

Boston, MA

I worked at ING Americas full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood compensation plan, great training, commendable attempts at perks

ConsHigh focus on metrics in employee evaluation--some mediocre things emphasized, some great qualities just don't translate well

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider that if someone isn't excelling in a specific position, but would be a perfect fit for another position, you may not need to cram them into the box for the first before considering moving them to the second
