    I have been working at ING full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    company is becoming its own without Dutch Group sometime soon. 40 hr. volunteer / community paid off time per year

    Cons

    no one knows what kind of company will it turn out to be. Hired leaders talk the talk, and got paid handsomely to make company public, meanwhile company is quietly laying off people while overworked worker bees have no salary increases in years.

    Advice to Management

    don't let company implode

    I have been working at ING full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Name Recognition
    Diverse Workforce
    Significant learning opportunities

    Cons

    Horrible Management-Especially in the PCF area
    Unstable Future
    No management accountability
    Very Unorganized
    Below Market Compensation

    Advice to Management

    Please eliminate the unprofessional middle management and work to boost employee morale. Force management to cut out the ridiculous politics and favoritism and focus on talent and innovation. Implement accountability on behalf of management.

    Pros

    Work/Life Balance
    Salary and benefits are decent

    Cons

    Processes are ridiculous
    Left hand never knows whats going on with the right hand
    Portrays a great image but behind closed doors, ING is a hot mess...like a 'mom & pop shop.'

    Advice to Management

    All the problems that ING faces is a result of incompentent senior management. You have good intelligent employees... those beneath you are much smarter than you. You should hush and listen sometimes and things would run much better.


  5. "ING IM -- mediocre compensation, vast uncertainty"

    Pros

    Substantial investment capabilities, both in terms of technology and people. A consistent investment philosophy across the fixed income platform. Upside potential depending on growth of investment management business, rebranding of IM apart from banking and insurance. Good work/life balance relative to other investment management firms.

    Cons

    Vast uncertainty in terms of future of business, future of company, location of operations, etc. Marginal track record in most strategies. Political pressures from HQ in Netherlands impact pay, especially bonuses. Bitter office politics. Too much emphasis on seniority and "experience", not enough appreciation for talent, not enough effort to get the most out of everyone's skill set.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they deserve to be paid. If you pay mediocre wages/bonuses compared to competitors, you are doomed to work with mediocre talent, which ING IM is flush with at every level and job function in the firm.

    Good benefits
    Large Company
    Good training programs

    Cons

    Job security is zero
    Employees are not treated equally
    More emphasis on certifications rather than ability to work the position.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your employees as people rather than just a piece of company equipment.

    Pros

    Great Work Life Balanace and PTOs. You are free to take off whenever you need to leave the office.

    Cons

    Poor Leadership, Poor Performance, Poor Investment in Human Capital, Systems, and Resources. The condition of the business can only be described as on life support. If you need a paycheck this is ok, but only if you have no other options. Additionally, the majority of employees lack motivation and the desire to compete. Intellectual curiousity is not valued.

    Advice to Management

    Hit the Reset Button. Poor Leadership is reflected in seriously negative employee morale. Given the last 2 years in the industry the place feels like a boneyard.

    "Good place to start a career but not a place to make a long term career"

    Pros

    Great place to start a career. If your Entry to Mid Level you will get the experience you need to get to that point from the work, not from training programs, but from digging into the work. Also the benefits are better than most large companies (insurance copay and coverage, and time off accrue).

    Cons

    The management is VERY niche orientated. Your paid according to who you know, how well you play the 'What ever you say' game, and if they like you on a personal level (not merit). Their hiring and promotion practices are very questionable and makes it difficult to stay as a long time employee, unless you like being underpaid and over worked.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate the hiring/promotion practices and find ways to retain valuable senior employees. It costs more to hire/train/bring up to speed a new employee than keeping an existing employee happy through merit raises/work day scheduling.
