I worked at Russell Investments full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Russell truly focuses on their employees and often bend over backwards for associates to have a work life balance. Transition from the Russell family oversight to NML have contributed to some unfortunate decions that were directly attributed to high attrition. As such, they do struggle with a loss of the original culture that made this firm what it once was. Bottom line, they don't just pay lip service to the comment "we put our employees first" as other firms in the industry do. This directly relates to how happy employees there are, why they stay there so long, and how well the clients are treated as a result.

Cons

Passive aggressive communcation style allowed by managment.

Advice to Management

Promote those that earn their place, not those who are socially the best connected with managers.

    Pros

    Russell offers excellent benefits, treats employees with respect and actively supports work/life balance. When the market is up, life is good.

    Cons

    Russell does not offer clear career paths for most roles, provides significantly disparate pay that is based more on relationships than value added and is highly political (especially in the current environment).

    Sustained focus and true accountability at the management level would do wonders for clients, associates and the firm.
