    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Investment Company Institute full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Interesting work, highly educated staff and supporting an industry and mission that is critical to the future retirement goals of people. Provide competitive pay and great benefits.

    Cons

    Very demanding environment. A bit traditional but still have opportunities to have fun. Not big on working at home or casual dress but other benefits certainly offset these areas.

    Advice to Management

    Expansion into global is the way to go; keep communicating and interacting with staff on a regular basis.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Investment Company Institute full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The investment company/mutual fund industry is interesting.

    Cons

    Terrible leadership, culture, environment, intra-office dynamics.

    Advice to Management

    CEO/President should stop being a hypocrite when it comes to ethical behavior. Leadership created an adversarial, backbiting environment that encouraged and promoted some of the worst creatures working at the place. HR Department was an untrustworthy joke, greatly slanted/biased against the employees, who were expected to toil long hours at low pay. Also, extreme bias against existing employees versus new employees. The latter were always favored. Just a dreadful, cold, heartless, incompetent leadership. Certain skill sets, particularly lawyers, were valued over all others ... a reflection on the CEO, a misguided lawyer lifer who made some dreadful senior hires.
