    I have been working at ING Clarion full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Majority of asset managers/acquisitions/portfolio management professionals are smart and highly motivated, but perhaps equally as important, they are also good people.

    Cons

    While senior leadership is strong, they could do a better job communicating the direction of the firm and express how individuals can grow within the company.
