Good if you know that you want to become an actuary.

Analyst (Current Employee) Memphis, TN

Pros-Work/Life balance is pretty good.
-Occasional opportunity for overtime.
-Pension and 401k
-Benefits aren't terrible

ConsThese are specific to Memphis as other offices are more diverse in how they function for the company...
-Very little room to advance unless you want to be an actuary
-Pay is low
-Training is spotty and the first several months - year are very frustrating as a result
-Constructive criticism is very rare

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to management in Memphis would be to invest more time in training and fostering the development of employees. The management at this office genuinely has a lot client work in addition to management duties but they need to better delegate responsibilities so that new employees don't have to re-invent the wheel by themselves. I would also stress that management needs to work on providing feedback that is constructive. Often employees receive no feedback or lazy feedback that is easy to misinterpret and is often destructive.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
