    Refreshingly friendly, impressively focused and continually collaborative!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Hoboken, NJ

    ProsThe environment is buzzing and contagious. Very smart people focused on changing the industry and world for the better. Humbled daily by the level of empathy throughout the company and receptive management striving to continually improve.

    ConsHoboken could use more parking and Newark is a little remote, but these are minimal pain points for the opportunity to be part of something so special.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the employees involved and engaged.

    Fast pace environment

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Newark, CA

    ProsIt is a fact paced environment. You will learn new things in a very short period of time.

    ConsRMS at ground level doesn't follow much of the software development processes. So it becomes a bit challenging to perform in such environment

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice

    Demanding, growing

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAlways ahead of its competitors. CEO is visionary and the senior management team is smart. All have strong academic backgrounds with pedigree degrees. Focus on growth, not cost cutting.

    ConsCompany getting really big and some of the new leaders don't share the history that makes RMS special. More politics.

    Awesome Place to Start Your Career

    Risk Analyst (Current Employee)
    Newark, CA

    ProsI started working at RMS about 2 months ago. This is definitely the right choice! For a new college graduate, RMS provided us with a full 6 weeks comprehensive training. Other than the training, there is still lots of on-going learning opportunities such as workshops and events, etc.
    RMS also offer a good benefit package.
    Everyone in the office is very friendly and willing to help.
    There is lots o room for potential growth.
    Moreover, I like the working environment here.
    People in the HR department are extremely helpful.

    ConsThere is no Cons so far

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Used to be better

    Model Development (Current Employee)
    Newark, CA

    ProsCan't think of any pros.

    Cons1- The company is currently run by people who don't have its best interest at heart.
    2- The company is unable to function as a coherent organization. There are many meetings in model dev just discussing why MPM is not needed, and how you should go around them instead of working with them.
    3- Many smart people who join the company under the assumption that they will use their expertise and education to upgrade the models end up quitting because management does not allow innovation; they only talk about it.
    4- Morale is extremely low. Employees talk about quitting openly. Meanwhile head of model dev thinks he's working management miracles.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReiterating what someone else said before: jump off a cliff

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
