Lovely people and a relaxed work atmosphere but few career development prospects

I worked at Risk Management Solutions full-time for more than a year

Pros

Opportunity to mix with some very bright, friendly bunch of people and on the whole this is probably one of the most exciting type of modelling work in insurance.
Salaries are decent but without the banking culture so work/life balance is surprisingly good.

Cons

Work not challenging enough and this can be very frustrating, esp when you're expecting to make good use of your advanced degree. This is role-dependent but work needs to be better linked to skills to ensure staff feel challenged.

    I worked at Risk Management Solutions full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There are quite a few great employees there to work with. Smart and hard working people. And there is a lot of cool technology to work on.

    Cons

    For a company that excels at catastrophe modeling, it is sure clueless how to model a great company. Upper management celebrate those that make them look good, aka PhD in BS. Those that want to be truthful about issues that, if resolved, could really do a lot of good are shunned or given a "package". And it doesn't matter if you are a new, a veteran, a quiet, or an in your face employee. The MO for these guys is, if you have a dissenting comment, get the hell out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What ever happened to "our employees are our greatest asset"? Now it is, "limit regrettable attrition", and 5 seconds later, "what's regrettable about this person leaving?". Fire the upper management and get some people who know what a positive working environment is.

    I have been working at Risk Management Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Qualified and talented staff, pretty good benefits, flexible hours, decent location

    Cons

    Too many reorgs in the past few years, lots of politics, compensation not so good, management self-centered and uncaring when it comes to retaining old good people.
