Location: Jersey City, New Jersey
Year of Hire: 2006
Department: IS&T
Degrees and Certifications:

  • Bachelor of Science, Computer Science, Stony Brook University
  • Bachelor of Science, Applied Math and Statistics, Stony Brook University
  • A+ Certification
  • Network+ Certification

As a computer specialist at Verisk, I support the workers compensation and commercial lines divisions, doing daily processing, ad hoc requests from client insurance agencies, and database updates during quarterly closeouts. The processing I do is submitted to the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) to satisfy regulatory requirements, and the updates help form the basis for loss costs and other insurance data for our business units.

The employees at Verisk are like my second family. The talent pool is always ready to teach and explain things to junior-level employees. The most exciting thing about Verisk is learning something new every day.

Verisk provides a challenging environment for individuals who have the right attitude and a motivation to succeed. Our company has made several key acquisitions over the years and has a strong potential for future growth. The opportunities for continuing education and job-related training are outstanding. Verisk has a good work/home balance that features programs such as flextime and offers company-sponsored softball and bowling teams.


Kristina Suppo

Assistant Manager, Commercial Auto 

ISO

“I am continually growing.”

 

 

Location: Jersey City, New Jersey
Year of Hire: 2001
Department: Commercial Auto
Degrees and Certifications:

  • Bachelor of Arts, Liberal Arts/Humanities, Villanova University
  • Master of Arts, Social Work, Rutgers University
  • Associate in General Insurance (AIS)
  • Associate in Insurance Services (AINS)

I review and oversee commercial automobile insurance line analysts’ revisions for ISO’s Commercial Lines Manual. Insurers use the manual and its revisions to help develop their insurance policies and rates. I also collaborate with other departments to ensure we release quality products that comply with each state’s insurance laws. I use my writing and analytical skills frequently to research and write summaries on court decisions and laws and for insurance department correspondence. I also respond to various customer inquiries about our products.

I enjoy the research involved in creating and improving our products, as well as the interaction with others at ISO. I truly feel challenged by my work, and I like that I’m continually growing as an employee through all the projects I’ve been involved with.

ISO has enhanced my career in many ways. I began as a publication support analyst, editing and reformatting filings created by commercial and personal insurance line analysts. After three years, I had the opportunity to work in the general liability line division. During my years in general liability, I handled a multitude of projects. I wrote policy language, researched cases and laws, made presentations, mentored coworkers, and served as a member of several insurance lines committees.

This past year, I was promoted to assistant manager in the commercial auto line division. So far, it’s been an amazing experience. Not only do I get to use my insurance lines knowledge, but I’ve also had the opportunity to help other line analysts realize their own potential.

I’ve made many friends at ISO. Our company has encouraged my growth as an individual. For example, ISO supports my participation in several insurance-related courses and exams. ISO also has a community involvement program that lets me participate in a volunteer reading program. In addition, our company offers a health and wellness program, which has motivated me to keep fit and taught me ways to maintain my health.

    IT Service Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jersey City, NJ
    Anonymous Employee in Jersey City, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Verisk Analytics in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Got the process started by a recruiter and scheduled an over the phone interview with the hiring manager in two days. Three 1:1 Interviews followed with the hiring manager and peers, during the same week. Everybody was welcoming and kept it interesting. Did not hear back from the hiring manager nor the recruiter until I called in to inquire about progress, which was a bit on the un-professional side for such a position.

    Atmosphere is serious but relaxed, people I met were courteous and interested in seeing candidates being introduced. Offices had older furnishing, nevertheless were as practical as one would expect with Cubicles and large open spaces.

    Apparently the company is undergoing a management reshuffle and introducing new blood at that level.
