Culture change since merger - for the worse

Senior Actuarial Analyst (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

ProsDecent compensation.
Opportunities for advancement.
Recent acquisitions have helped up their technology game.
Senior management has a bold vision for the future and seem to be implementing it well.
High quality work output.

ConsLittle work/life balance and no real sympathy for those who want it.
Advancement opportunities are more difficult for those looking for alternative ways to do it - career paths are well-defined, but they risk losing people who haven't followed these well-worn paths.
My group has been understaffed for several years with no end in sight.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet people have a life outside the firm. Don't make them feel bad for using vacation time. Most importantly, adequately staff positions.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
