    Good company overall, but the ability to grow in the company is slim.

    I have been working at Milliman full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Office is in downtown Seattle. Benefits are good. Pay is decent. Amazing facility, with a stellar facilities staff who is always friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Office culture could be better. Lack of diversity. Equity Principles have little to no management skills. But because of their salary, they feel they are more than qualified to manage people. Segregated practices, makes for confusing regulations and rules. What work for some may not work for others. Also very prejudice towards people of color when promoting into management roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Highly suggest showing more value into your employees who are actually the ones who keep the place running.

    I worked at Milliman as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    The work environment is very friendly. Compensation was adequate, for my skill set. Supervisors were fair and easygoing. My hours were flexible, and I always had the resources I needed to be effective.

    Cons

    Responsibilities were not always clear to a layperson--most of Milliman's employees are very well-versed in what they do, so coming in without actuarial training was a challenge.

    Learning Experience, No Room for Growth

    I have been working at Milliman full-time

    Pros

    They are extremely flexible with time and seem to value their employees like family. I have seen very few people leave this company in the 3 years I have worked there. They also give regular raises and good bonuses when the company is doing well.

    Cons

    My biggest issue with this company is the position I obtained had no room for growth. Another downside is training; it was very difficult to learn here as most tasks ended up being self taught. Co-workers make it seem like there is no time and especially no initiative to train others. Although there are regular company outings (Christmas party, a luncheon and a summer outing), it is not a very social environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to take more time training your employees throughout their stay at the company. I also think that promotions or gaining new responsibility after an employee has demonstrated their worth would keep things fresh and allow a person to grow within the company.

    Pros

    Generous Benefits, good pay, great work culture. EP's understand the work life balance and want to help me acheive my goals

    Cons

    You tend to work as much as you want which can lead to long hours. IT is definitely a support role with little ability to transition into management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Milliman is a great place to work yet it is understandably singularly focused on the actuarial sciences. Computer sciences are tools to help actuaries and a greater integration of actuarial sciences and technology will help across the board. This means EP's and managers need to know upcoming trends in computer technology and be willing to use it to their advantage. I don't believe that is stressed enough in Milliman culture.

    Employees of Milliman are constantly stressed, over-worked, and provided very little support and appreciation.
