    If I knew then, what I know now...

    Portfolio Manager (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsColleagues were the best part of working here.

    ConsVery cheap when it comes to upgrading a computer or adding any software for trading or anything else need to run your strategy/business. Sometimes you need to speed a little money to make money.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOpen up the purse a bit. Also need to hire some "A" type people. Especially when it comes to the marketing area to raise assets!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    OK as a stepping stone, limited opportunity for growth

    RFP Writer (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsAs an RFP Writer, you will have have frequent interaction with investment professionals. It is a very relaxed, slow-paced atmosphere which can be a pro or con depending on your careers goals.

    ConsIdeas for improvement are not welcome, limited opportunities for professional growth, taking on extra projects or going above & beyond is discouraged. I was accused of not being happy with the position and trying to get a promotion because I would ask for more work. I came from a larger firm in NYC, where my peers were in grad school, taking the CFA, worked till 7/8 regularly, attended internal training sessions, etc. This environment at Robeco is much slower, and I wasn't happy. If you are not looking for a career challenge, and want to take a 1 hour lunch everyday and leave by 5pm, this is a good company to just do the bare minimum.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf someone is spending hours every day surfing the internet and leaving every day at 5pm because there is not enough work, I don't think they should be discouraged from seeking extra projects.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Serious business atmosphere with a few possible improvements to be made.

    RFP Writer (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsGenerous vacation time
    Understanding bosses
    Helpful IT department, accommodating of requests
    Lenient about personal issues
    Helpful support staff and approachable senior level employees

    ConsHR not open to changes
    Not many team building events
    Rare to have company functions outside of holiday party
    Older average age
    Not super clear on career progression or options within the company

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe ways that Robeco could be improved include making the office more a team type setting by hosting events, lunches, etc. They have great benefits including vacation time and most bosses are willing to give leeway on appointments, schedule issues, and so on. The work itself is interesting and challenging, but having the eye on the prize / next step in your career is something that Robeco could improve. With offices all over the world, I believe they should have an exchange program where you see how your job is done in different countries and bring back insight. It is definitely a "get your work done and you're good" type of setting currently.
