    Pros

    Advance investigative skills in writing, personal interviews, and search proficient using fraud tools and public records. Doing my tenure, I worked with some great co-workers. If you want to improve writing skills in the fraud investigative or repurchase area, good place to work.

    Cons

    Company did not appear to appreciate older workers. Heavy clique cultural among management/supervisors, showing favor to some workers. Work from some Supervisors was not distributed fairly; a few workers constantly received harder files to work than others did.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees fairly. Human Resources, learn what the privacy clauses mean in your job.

    Pros

    Radian has wonderfully talented people on its team and the culture encourages collaboration and teamwork.

    Cons

    The work-life balance is nil and you will be challenged if you need to, say, leave to do something for your SPOUSE or your KID. That's unacceptable for me.

    Advice to Management

    Learn management practices from successful firms in similar or completely different industries. The human skills from management is sorely lacking.


  8. It's a nice company to make a little extra cash with on the weekends.

    Pros

    Pays well for what you do. Only on weekends so you always know your hours. Management is great.

    Cons

    Since work is only on weekends it kind of kills your weekends. Every week for 19 hours makes having fun with friends impossible.

    Pros

    The environment was awesome. I worked with a great group of people including my supervisor and managers. I even left for another job opportunity, hated it there, and within 30 days called my supervisor at Radian and asked to come back. I was at my old desk the next day. Great place to work.

    Cons

    No challenges that I can remember. I only have fond memories of my time at Radian.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Above-average compensation for part-time weekend work in various stores throughout NW Arkansas. If Radian's contract was extended, I would have enjoyed remaining with the team. My co-workers were very pleasant to work with, and had strong work ethics. Interfacing with the public and the customers was fun and rewarding. It's definitely not a job for a wallflower!

    Cons

    Many of the store managers were challenging to work with, yet Radian Group members were stellar communicators. Communication between the Radian Team Leader and the Store Managers was inconsistent, which created some tension that wasn't always easily resolved.

    Advice to Management

    Carefully select Team Leaders to ensure that they're personable, professional, and able to properly train their Associates. Other than that, my experience with the company was very favorable.
