    I worked at ING full-time

    Pros

    The actuarial program was a robust and helpful one. As a result, actuarial material was readily availble to assist with the exam process.

    Cons

    Management was not transparent. Therefore, the overall end goal of projects was not communicated which stunts career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Management's transparency something which should be addressed so that actuarial students get the full benefit of the actuarial program.

    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

    ING was a great company to have an internship with. The employees and managers are all encouraging and supportive and want you to learn as much as you possibly can. The environment isn't stressful either.

    Cons

    No cons for working at ING.

    Advice to Management

    None.
