    I worked at Verisk Analytics

    Pros

    - creative, talented, friendly, hard-working people
    - good salary/bonus structure

    Cons

    - lack of organization and planning (micro and macro, enterprisewide)
    - "feel good" activities and contests don't make up for lack of resources

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend fewer resources on internal communication efforts (like the intranet and contests) -- and spend your resources on hiring qualified staff at the appropriate grade levels so your current staff members aren't choked to the point of burnout. Your most precious resources -- your human resources -- are exhausted. Wake up!

    As a company, Verisk has missed MANY opportunities because of poor planning. That's inexcusable for a publicly-traded company.

    There is a great need to prioritize efforts enterprisewide. If you can complete 25 projects a year with great results, or 50 with so-so results, or 100 with poor results, why would you choose the 100? Prioritize.

    All product launches should follow a solid development and launch plan. Nothing should go to market without a comprehensive plan. You need to make sure products are ready BEFORE they launch. Where is the product pipeline? Who controls it?

    Because of the company's internal structure, different units have created competing products and services over the years. Those products and services are often not bundled or considered -- they're allowed to cannibalize each other. I can only imagine how confused customers are. The company has made strides in recent years to correct that, but they have a long way to go.
