I have been working at Calvert Investments full-time (Less than a year)
Senior management has a plan for the company to grow and be more of a leader in socially responsible investing. The plan is not just words but has resulted in actions to facilitate change and a new way of doing things. Change has made some of people at the company uncomfortable. Not a lot changed here for many many years. Even when change is needed and for the best, there will be those that dig their heels in and resist. If you enjoy working in a dynamic, fast paced environment, where your opinion and experience is valued, you will love working here. Please don't be discouraged by some of the reviews on this site -you will have a chance to make a difference here and the new management has the company heading in the right direction.
The technology needs improving. This is being addressed but will take time and resources to improve. Also, more resources need to be put towards developing and training staff. This was ignored by the prior management team and it is noticeable - especially if you come from a company where this is a focus.
Advice to Management
Keep up the communication. It is appreciated especially during times of change. Put as much structure as possible in place to facilitate the changes the company is going through. This will make employees feel more secure about making the transition and ensure nothing falls through the cracks. Thanks for all you are doing for the company and employees.
I did a phone screen with HR first and the hiring manager afterwards. Then, I came in for a face-to-face interview with five staff, including HR representative, the hiring manager and a VP. This in-person interview lasted 4 hours. By the time I got to the VP, I was exhausted! I don't believe they should make candidates go through such a long, drawn-out process. I didn't get a good impression of the company, partly because of the way the interview was handled.
