    I have been working at ING full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very family work life balance focus culture despite being in finance/banking/lending
    The teams also have good reputations in the banking world and are slowly but steadily gaining exposure and leadership positions i deals
    ING americas is growing quickly so every team is expanding and that's exciting to see

    Cons

    Low turnover at upper levels so difficult to get promoted quickly as a young analyst
    Also sometimes the Dutch culture is annoying. Like trying to skimp on rent or cramming a lot of people into a small space with no storage. That's cute and all but really the office costs are dwarfed by our revenues generated in this region.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting Dutch people from ING headquarters on senior positions in ING NY. Sometimes it's best to leave the American business to the Americans.

    I worked at ING full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay and flexibility to work from home as/when needed. Great new facility - nice fitness center, huge cafeteria with LOTS of choices each day and plenty of healthy choices, and many comfortable little places with club chairs/couches to go and work quietly, have lunch, take a break or meet with coworkers (if privacy is not required).
    I would recommend working there to a friend based on their position. If you just want to put your head down, work hard and leave at the end of the day - it can be decent pay and family friendly/flexible (at individual dept managers discretion).

    Cons

    Very few managers truly appreciate their admin staff. I've never had a boss fight for me - fight to get me a decent raise or title increase. Bonus pool was always distributed among the "real workers" first and Admins got what little is left over - regardless of their "exceeds requirements" rank.

    Advice to Management

    I want to say - take a good hard look at some of the people you hire for Executive and Sr. Leadership positions... but who would be doing the looking? Other ignorant, self-serving, smile to your face while twisting the knife in your back, insensitive, power hungry idiots?
    What good would that do?

    Pros

    good team, firm, and benefits . There is a good working culture in place. Management is serious and really good

    Cons

    the salary isn't fantastic in particular on the bonus side, it does not reflect inputs into the team and into the business activity

    Advice to Management

    continue on the trend and work culture, but increase benefits, which remains a frustration at most level. unlock some redundant processes slowing business

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and fair salary.

    Cons

    Not a transparent environment. Management team doesn't share information unless it is in their best interest.
    Dutch natives tend to be gruff and speak in their own language in order to get away with subject matter around those who don't understand.

    Advice to Management

    Having your employees fear you is not good for morale.

    Pros

    Ability to travel abroad and pursue opportunities in different groups within structured finance departments globally. Many workshops by Moody's analytics that offer opportunity to strengthen technical skills.

    Cons

    The pay isn't particularly high. The exit opportunities are somewhat limited as this isn't a typical American investment banking position.

    Advice to Management

    None
