Pros

If you kiss up enough, you'll have a job for life , the pay is good, they feed us a lot with catered lunches and other themes during the summer, like italian ice day, flex summer hours , dress code not enforced, you can wear jeans

Cons

To copy another post, that is pretty much hits it on right on:
Managers/Administration are heavy handed/micro managers. Policies change frequently so it is hard to know what to expect. Management style creates an unnecessary high tension atmosphere-there is too much drauma in the work place due to management style. Roles are not defined , leadership is highly inexperienced ( because most of them, have only worked for this company or one other), disorganized, unclear business plan. It feels like I am back in high school, nothing gets accomplished and larger issues are ignored.

If you are older, they don't care what you have to say.

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 , practices and productivity.

    Pros

    Big company, and we keep getting bigger - hopefully, there will be opportunities for career advancement in the future.

    Cons

    No room for career advancement - seems like people who come to work here end up retiring within their current roles.

    Pros

    Many opportunities to work in fast growing industries, like healthcare. Managers are very supportive of personal and professional development.

    Cons

    Some divisions are short-staffed, so employees often take on additional responsibilities without a consequent raise/promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on aligning pay more closely with roles and responsibilities.
