    I worked at RiskMetrics

    Pros

    RiskMetrics had a great, laid-back culture, nice people and very good benefits. Compensation was fair compared to other companies, and management generally showed respect for workers. The company seemed to promote a very strong work-life balance.

    Cons

    While the people were very friendly, the culture was sometimes dry--mostly because a lot of people lacked social skills. While I think it was a good place to work, there seemed to be few opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management should work a bit more on continued training and development of current employees and also offer more opportunities to younger, less experienced workers.

    Pros

    RiskMetrics has a very diverse group of employees from different cultural and professional background which makes for interesting conversations and interactions.

    Cons

    Decision-making is more driven by office politics and hearsay than by rational objectivity. There is little accountability for poor performance at upper managerial levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    RMG should adopt a more qualitative approach to evaluating in-house talent and developing it and drop the heavy focus on head count. Not all apples are the same.
