I have been working at Risk Management Solutions full-time

Pros

Good 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.

Cons

Reorg 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 ManagementAdvice

Stop 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.

    RMS is at an inflection point ... and is unfortunately going in the wrong direction due to politics

    I have been working at Risk Management Solutions full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very intelligent modelers, from Stanford and Berkeley. Some very smart people in the trenches.
    Been profitable for > 15 years.
    Board (parent company) seems to be hands-off.

    Cons

    Politics has gotten very, very bad now. Too many reorganizations, one every 3 months in development organization. People who only talk, and talk well, are getting promoted, and a lot of talent is leaving. Pushy VPs taking credit for other groups's work.

    Company is spending huge amount on logo change, while we are critically short of human capital in other areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of politics, else long term future is in jeopardy.
    Bring back the anonymous question/answer we had on the internal website (Ask the leader).
    Seriously review why attrition is so high, talk to anyone who has worked at RMS more than 3 years, and left in last 2 years -- not the perfunctory exit interview. Rather a detailed one, seeking feedback, 30 to 45 days after a person has left.
