    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 ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your good people so they don't leave.

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

    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.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Worst company for talent people

    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Philadelphia, PA

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    My experience was okay.

    I worked at Radian Guaranty

    Pros

    Nice group of co-workers, made the day go fast.

    Cons

    Work is not fairly distributed in reference to difficulty, political environment on who knows and like you. Giving your feedback to supervisors or management is a waste on time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has allowed a lot of good talent to leave, which was a result of low pay, and contractors not made permanent after being at the company for long time periods. It is not a secure environment unless you are in the supervisor / management click.
