Pros

New York City area location, nice co-workers, good training programs for actuarial and/or IT staff, 401K, stock match, good holiday schedule -- see also ISO reviews.

Cons

Advancement to management and senior management is very difficult, silos are encouraged, moving among divisions and/or subsidiaries nearly unheard of. Many promotions leave you scratching your head, management by intimidation rewarded. Absolutely no ability to work from home despite VDI environment. Management does not trust employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Staff survey of management (last done over 10 years ago) might help management improve style and understanding of staff concerns. 360 reviews should be encouraged and not punitive.

    I have been working at Verisk Analytics

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good. It is a work at home job. Quarterly bonus' are a plus.

    Cons

    Managers/Administration are heavy handed/micro managers. Policies change frequently so it is hard to know what to expect. There are conditions on use of vacation time use. Management style creates an unnecessary high tension atmosphere-there is too much drauma in the work place due to management style.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with your employees rather than focusing on managing them. You will get much more cooperation, productivity, and satisfied employees with honey than with vinegar. Verisk should take a more direct approach in managing Crowe Paradis Services Corporation by looking at management policies and practices.
