    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.

    I have been working at Radian Guaranty as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    The employees who have been there over 10-12 years have developed a solid office culture. They were apart of the great days for the mortgage industry and have done a great job of building and protecting a excellent culture. There are growth opportunities for people who are hard working and can take leadership on difficult initiatives.

    Cons

    These are difficult times for the business. They are closely linked to the issues in the housing and mortgage business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none

    I worked at Radian Guaranty

    Pros

    good group of people, management seems to care about the people but will do what's in the best interests of the stockholders in the end

    Cons

    opportunities existed to be more flexible with work from home that were not taken advantage of, especially during the nasty winter months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire people with a background in what it is that they are being hired to do. To many new hires in management positions without the background in the mortgage insurance field
