I have been working at Risk Management Solutions full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

+ Some of the individual contributors are pretty great + Sometimes management leave you alone and lets you get your job done + 5 o'clock comes at LEAST once a day and you an go home

Cons

+ You become very unmarketable as the skills you learn are only transferable within the insurance industry, and even there only in a narrow segment within the industry. + Senior management is not determined by merit, but by if you are friends with your division head + Decisions within divisions are made in a non-transparent fashion and employees are often left doing what they are told with no input into the process + There is little room for learning new things as the resourcing on high profile projects is very underestimated leaving the employee with little to no time to do anything new or interesting + Management can be rude and demeaning to employees

Advice to Management

As many others have said, scrap the senior management or at least have them re-apply to their jobs. Many of them could never make the cut. Go back to your roots when people were happy. I know its possible because I have seen it go well in the past, but the direction the company is going spells total disaster.

    I worked at Risk Management Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Intellectually stimulating work. Some very talented people. what are they doing there? If you like sucking up to the top dog and are talented at Machiavelian politics, this is the place for you!

    Cons

    Don't fly too close to the flame. You'll get burned. If you are honest and candid, keep your moth shut if you want to survive.

    Advice to Management

    If you want loyalty, be loyal to your employees.
