    I worked at Radian Guaranty full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Decent Salary - Decent time off if you are there long enough - Decent staff

    Cons

    - Promotions seem to go to friends of management and not hard workers - Sometimes they give you a bad review for no reason so they don't have to give you a raise - Sometimes they give you a bad review for no reason so they can downsize cheaply

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your good people so they don't leave.

    Pros

    Mostly nice colleagues, good work. Depending on the Manager possible to train and work in all areas. Lots of technology and cross functional area.

    Cons

    Not a good place to grow unless you are the in team with the Manager. Leader ship does not take all people working in their future plans and also not much communication.

    Radian is extremely focus on work-life balance. They provided an excellent office culture which encourage up-ward mobility.

    Actually this was a really great company all the way around. No complaints from me!

    Help employees to understand where they fit in to the overall picture and scope of the company. This helps each employee to really feel apart of the growth of the company

    Pros

    You can get flexibility if you earn it People are great to work with Very involved in community - lots of volunteer opportunities Not your normal, conservative financial services culture - it's innovative & fun

    Cons

    Slim resources (you wear many hats) You will put in long hours because of lack of resouces

    Advice to Management

    Keep the transparency with employees. Town Halls are nice way for everyone to catch up on latest news within company.

    Pros

    The people are great and it really does feel like a family unit for the most part. This appears to be a company where they encourage professional growth. Management is very understanding to work-life balance.

    Cons

    I do not have anything negative to say about the company. I am very happy that I was given the oppurtunity to hone my skills here and to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Set realistic goals

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Radian Guaranty full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are intelligent, pros are none. If you know how to play golf and impress mediocre management, pros are endless.

    Cons

    No growth, no benefits, dwindling stock prices, managers are not smart and lack logical thinking. If you have technical background, you won't have much to write on your resume once you leave the company. STAY AWAY or JOIN AS A CONSULTANT with big pay

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting money on virtual and classroom training programs, get some hands-on experience.
