    I worked at Radian Group full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    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

    Family environment, with great pay.

    You must be in the click to be successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop the skill of your current employees instead of replenishing them with new employees.

    Former Employee - Retail Sales & Marketing Associate in Bentonville, AR

    I worked at Radian Group part-time (less than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

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

    Pros

    People are nice. Great place to work. Management team are good. Every role seems to have a backup, which means if one person is not able to fulfill the work, they always have an arrangement for another guy to complete the job for that moment. Can work from home. Relax working environment.

    Cons

    The software development technologies used there were a little behind compare to other companies.

    I worked at Radian Group

    Pros

    Pay well, and there is a reason for that. As a matter of fact they overpay in most cases. (Battlepay?) Managers can be flexible with work schedules. Benefits are OK. The HR Department keeps trying to sell the Consumer Driven plans which really are tough to understand. They consistenly make the other plans way more expensive so that employees will pick the CDHPs.

    Cons

    Long, long hours - sometimes into the night and weekends, with very little reward. By rewards I mean a day off, or some sort of spot bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop rewarding the same people over and over again.

    Pros

    Radian does pay well, and they provide a good benefit package. They also pay a good portion of the medical benefits - 70/30 split. They also have a host of benefits that are free, like College Coach, Health Advocate, Life Insurance and more.

    Cons

    People can sometimes work in silos, and are not always respectful to others. Sometimes people forget that that we are human beings and deserve respect. I've heard people curse at one another (the 'f' word) and they've actually taken credit for others work, promotions are given to all the wrong people. Management allows employees to hold them hostage for more and more money. Result, Radian overpays it's employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look around, listen and learn what your employees and the economy is saying. The company is in a financial bind right now, and we are spending money quicker than ever. STOP, let the economy tell us what we need to do, then do it. If we have to scale back to save the company, SCALE BACK!
