    Pros

    Well recognized firm within the industry. Senior management consists of very respectable people within the industry.

    Cons

    No work-life balance. People are very unfriendly and downright rude. Compensation is below industry average. People straight out tell you that you need to be there to put in facetime. No clear direction from senior management as to what's going on and what role you play in the company, short of the company wide emails telling you that they are trying to improve communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage employees to get their work done correctly and on time. Base promotions on actual performace and not hours spent at the office.

    Pros

    An international environment to work, very good team members who are open to sharing information and communication. Decent location for jobs.

    Cons

    The corporate culture is not supportive for employees to pursue further education. The general perception for the compensation is lower than other comparable firms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should pay more attention to compensation, and should make clear system to do that where everyone feels rewarded for their work.

    Good long-term career

    Pros

    Work-life balance is good. Once you are hired, it is very tough to get fired, but you have to play politics correctly. Those that are compensated and promoted the best share qualities not of the highest intelligence, but of the best politicians. So, if you are thinking about applying for a job at ING Clarion, go into the interview knowing that this is still Corporate America and you need to play the game to get ahead. It is a great company to work for, but you can't have a bad attitude. There is low turnover at the senior management level.

    Cons

    Salaries are low compared to industry standards. That said, outperformers are paid competitively. Face time is important, and you have to play office politics. Say hello and be friendly to everyone, especially assistants because they have the ears of senior management. You also have to be your own best champion and let everybody know that you were key in leading specific projects, especially around bonus time or you will not be compensated. Again, the biggest downside is office politics, so you are better off letting your boss think that you are great, although your boss may still steal your ideas as his own, so beware.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more communicative with staff. Start initiating more team sports to increase employee morale. Raise salaries slightly to be more at-market that just below average.
