Pros

Multinational company with European mindset, lots of growth opportunities across geographical & capital markets; Diversified offerings; Stable company. Very smart people (nobody less than a MBA where I was); mostly young crowd

Cons

Sub groups have too much autonomy that could make your work hell or heaven. No consistency in culture because of some people's own agenda. Few weak managers cause the system to break down. Can get too focused on meeting targets.

Advice to Management

Encourage management learning & frequent reviews, to gauge their effectiveness, not just focus on numbers. Implement an employee engagement program.

    Pros

    ING is a large corporation with big company benefits and HR services. The management is community-service minded - for example, they offer 40 hours per year of paid time off to do volunteer service with an approved organization.

    Cons

    Along with big company benefits come rigid bureaucracy and red tape. There is a "not invented here" culture - new ideas are not welcome. In three years with the company, I never saw a manager go to any kind of leadership training. That's why I recommend that you request a team interview, and ask your future peers what they like and dislike about the manager and the work.

    Advice to Management

    Implement an open door policy, where any and every idea will be taken seriously by any leader. Require ongoing leadership training for anyone who has supervisory responsibilities in order to keep poor management practices from driving away good employees.


  2. "Heavy on the work, not so heavy on the life balance"

    Pros

    In the Retirement Services unit, A nonstop sell, sell, sell, culture creates opportunities for rush to market projects, thus inspiring a revolving door of all hands on deck.

    Cons

    See the pros above. Management puts too much emphasis on listening to field sales needs and meeting them, and not enough time on overall strategy and how requests fit into the big picture. Creates a lot of unneccessary fire drills and IT, marketing, and other resource demands, which more often than not just goes to waste.

    Advice to Management

    Stop to smell the roses and to maybe model other areas of the organization. Lots of ING SBUs seem like great places to work, others seem to be stuck in an old fashioned business model.
