    Great staff, friendly environment, staff took the time to teach me about their work when I had no prior knowledge of it.

    I worked at ING as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people
    Challenging projects
    Gym at site
    Cafeteria on site
    Able to join real meetings and projects
    Lunch and Learns

    Cons

    They did not have a offering stage of the internship to be a full-time employee. Seems as though you work as intern and hired to full-time with no break in between, essentially only good for graduated students.

    Pros

    Great people, awesome experience to learn and to grow, especially just starting in the finance world, great management as well

    Cons

    Could potentially have had more structured intern program, in terms of introducing to other groups and other areas of the company

    Advice to Management

    Focus on teaching, but otherwise, great leadership to learn from, to interact with on a daily basis, and to ultimately be friends with in the end.

  8. "Laid back and relaxed work atmosphere, bis corporate BS, only average compensation"

    Pros

    Balance between work/life is excellent. Company allows for 20 days PTO almost always whenever you request for. Senior management is very competent, create a laid back and fun place to work.

    Cons

    Often have to participate in dumb big corporate events and training that seem pointless. No one really takes them seriously. Not the best opportunities for career advancement although that is stronger in Scottsdale than other places within ING.

    Advice to Management

    Share more of the overall corporate strategy and direction with lower level employees. Compensation is average below competitors in the area.

    Pros

    Worked as a finacial intern - got 16/hr not doing much, pretty simple internship, good pay, looks good on resume

    Cons

    Boring work, didn't learn much

    Advice to Management

    not much communication w/ management, interns aren't really worth much time in their opinion

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The culture is very relaxed and the environment is friendly. I was just an intern but I felt as if I were treated with the same level of resprect as a full time hire. As an actuarial intern with no exams they paid quite well and they made it fun for interns as far as outings and out of work events go. The formal intern program is really helpful, managers are nice, and the company is very reputable. I definitely enjoyed my summer at ING. The newly built facility in Windsor, CT is also very nice. I would definitely recommend this company to a friend.

    Cons

    Location, location, location!!! Hartford is probably the most boring place I've ever been and in fact this is why I'm avoiding a full time job here. As much as I loved the company, I can't see my self 21 years old living in Hartford. Its more of a city for those with families that are looking to settle down and live a slow paced life. Its a nice place but not exactly the ideal environment for a new college graduate/entry level hire. In fact, I here that this is a big problem that the insurance industry has (good talent not wanting to live in Hartford). As far as the company itself, I cant think of anything bad to say.

    Advice to Management

    None... as far as I know, they did a very good job of leading the organization
