    I worked at Milliman full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    excellent salary and bonus plan, above average benefits that include profit sharing and beautiful, well maintained office space. Employee activities budget is generous. If you are satisfied and motivated by money alone, your needs will be met.

    Cons

    All of the pros lend itself to a sterile environment, coworkers are skeptical and unwelcoming of new hires, business units are segregated. The bonus program is tied directly to accomplishments and to meet goals and objectives excessive overtime is often required.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership isn't open to input on most subjects

    Pros

    Great people and work environment. Offer generous compensation for passing actuarial exams as well as compensated study time leading up to them.

    Cons

    Office parties

    Cruises
    Football, hockey, and baseball tickets
    Travel

    Cons

    You moon the wrong person at an office party and suddenly you're not professional anymore.
    We eat way too much cake.
    16 hour work days for three months out of the year
    There's not much mentoring. Employees are left to figure things out on their own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    respect confidentiality.
    try to create a culture of inclusion
    when replying to an email, try to reply to the entire email and not just part of it.

    Milliman is like going back in time... it's an inflexible and incestuous work environment.

    I worked at Milliman full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The pay and company benefits are 'on par' with competitors in the industry.

    Cons

    Senior management lacks: vision, leadership and the ability to inspire creativity and innovation. The focus is doing things "on the cheap" for clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Hard work is painful when life is devoid of purpose. But when you live for something greater than yourself and the gratification of your own ego, then hard work becomes a labor of love."
