    The cleanup is starting

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Newark, CA

    ProsI think this was a great company when I worked there. Knowledge and morale have gone down quite a bit lately it seems, but overall I assume it's still a good place.

    Good thing is: the cleanup of mediocre people is starting. CTO fired (quite a comical guy actually), marketing and product management are not far behind.

    ConsHave too many good people already left? That is the important question now. Catastrophe modeling is not something you can just pick up in a year or so. Some of the smartest and hardest working people left because of now ex-CTO Philippe Stephan. Brain drain is hard to overcome. They can celebrate their HR people as much as they want on Linkedin, you won't find the experience you need easily.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRight direction it seems. They even invited us alumni to have a meeting for the 25th anniversary. Guess they want us back. No thanks for now.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fast pace environment

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Newark, CA

    ProsIt is a fact paced environment. You will learn new things in a very short period of time.

    ConsRMS at ground level doesn't follow much of the software development processes. So it becomes a bit challenging to perform in such environment

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice

    You get a chance to work in latest Microsoft technologies. Company is using all the top-notch technologies out there.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGet your hands on experience in latest technologies. You can actually work on NextGen application which is deployed in Cloud.

    ConsNot much process oriented. You will feel that very less time is spent on designing, because the project requirements are not properly defined

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease work with Employees

    Meh, it's a job

    Model Development (Current Employee) Newark, CA

    ProsGood teamwork, but only within your own team. Lots of things to learn in model development site. Salaries and benefits tolerable. Good location away from much of the gridlocked parts of the Bay. Parent company seems well invested but still hands off.

    ConsReorg after reorg. Massive failure to communicate between departments. Company moving forward so fast it is leaving many teams behind. Often unreasonable deadlines. Politics are terrible.

    CEO is nice guy, but lacks ability to maintain course more than a year. Company seems like it has ADHD and is not on any meds for it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop the reorgs. Stop dividing up the company into so many "teams" that do not communicate or know what each other is doing or what the needs are of your core employees/teams.
