    I worked at Verisk Analytics as an intern

    Pros

    Laid back environment close to public transit

    Cons

    Lack of communication from management Expectations that need to be met by employees are not stated at the point of hire; very unprofessional Employees who hold a position that carries a lot of weight for their company in the crime analytics division should be treated as important as they are; hiring someone of this importance as a temp is a mistake Stating your position status as a temp for the reason of revenue and then bringing on a full time hire 2 months later is disrespectful and unprofessional

    Advice to Management

    Don't allow Learn It Solutions to hire temps its very unfair to the hire and to directors

    Pros

    Convenient flex-time, if you're in the right department (otherwise, it'll be frowned upon, and in most cases held against you when it comes to review time...even though it's permitted per the employee covenants). - Relatively okay place to work if you're looking for work-life balance; but not much else.

    Cons

    Opportunity within the organization is reserved for family-members of people in charge; or "friends of the program" (yes: nepotism happens everywhere, but it is very much ingrained as part of how incestual ISO operates - though, they'll now say it's "The Verisk Way".) - No rhyme or reason to what you're working toward (i.e. - PMP process is a joke [largely self-written by employees], promotions are typically at-random - and during the years in which you feel you deserve them least, as opposed to others where you truly applied yourself) - Don't expect to keep up with the joneses, in terms of compensation. Cost of living will skyrocket, while ISO will pass off the con-job of "being competitive within the industry" - they are not anywhere close, and will have you behind in the rat race before too long. Just take a look at how much you pay to get to the office, and how much it increases through the years....ISO will give you, literally, a couple of dollars toward that each year. - Having gone public a few years back, "bigwigs" are just becoming self-aware, which is scary. Downgrades to cubicle space, in favor of a more "wide-open" environment.....so that CFO's can save money, etc., etc., etc. Translation? "Aggravating employees in order to save a few fistfuls" --- better hope it's someday reflected in our paychecks!

    Advice to Management

    Think back to how many employees have played you through the years - for degrees, advanced degrees, and professional certifications......only to walk as soon as they were completed. Would it have been better for the good of the organization to compensate/keep them? I had once read a review on here: entry-level, for life - not very far off. Make sure you get everything clarified and in writing at the time of your offer....otherwise, they look to get-over on just about everyone they hire, by initially low-balling -- and giving disgusting "raises" and "bonuses" there-after.
