Great work culture however if you are not good at office politics, that can be stall your career. They overall really care about their employees but the upcoming sale has a lot of people worried

Great learning environment
Americas Institutional Intern (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WADecember 12, 2014
When you join the Russell Investments team - whether as an intern or associate - you are expected to perform at a very high level. Your fellow coworkers assume you will know how to do your day-to-day operations efficiently and accurately, however, they are all more than willing to help if you need assistance. Any time I run into an issue and have to ask for help, associates are happy to help and teach. Coworkers are very friendly and very intelligent people which make for a wonderful combination. Overall, Russell is a great place to learn and grow your expertise on investment management. I absolutely love this company.
Pros
great coworkers. great experience. flexible schedules.
Cons
intern benefits and compensation.

One of the best comanies I have ever worked for!
Deskside Support Analyst (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WashingtonDecember 27, 2013
Although my time at Russell was not as long as I would have liked, I was on a two month contract assisting with the deployment of new machines to the users, I can honestly say that it is one of the best places I have ever worked at. As a contractor it is all too common to be treated as a second class worker by many companies, not so at Russell. During my time there I was welcomed by the rest of the team and treated with respect. If given the chance I would most definitely work for Russell again.
Pros
great work environment, very competitive wages
Cons
some of the users are on the very high end of the needy/picky scale

Leading consulting firm, opportunity to grow asset management
Private Client Services (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIJuly 8, 2013
Russell has attracted some of the industry's top talent when it comes to consulting and manager research. As a leading institutional money manager and consulting firm, Russell has struggled to translate that message into something easily understood by retail clients. Products are second to none.

Russell Investments is a great place to work, they have a terrific culture and values
Product Manager (Former Employee) –  Tacoma, WAJuly 27, 2012
A typical day would be spent collaborating with other departments gathering requirements and meeting with developers for a software project I was managing. I learned a lot about project management, web development, marketing and legal contracts. I worked with a great team that was very supportive. I enjoyed working with vendors and other departments. The hardest part of my job was keeping all involved with the project to meet deadlines.
