    Pros

    The company is very dedicated to getting products built that provide value to customers. They are open to new ideas and are working to correct course whenever needed. This can look like disorganization, but I feel they are making the right moves for the company. I see a lot of improvement.

    Cons

    Communication is being improved and new technical management is dedicated to making that happen.

    I have been working at Risk Management Solutions as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    RMS has a great mission - to make the world a more resilient place. To achieve this, it has created a terrific business model that is very profitable. It provides a secure, stable environment with highly intelligent and talented colleagues. The work/life balance is real, not just a sales pitch - everyone starts with 20 days PTO plus 10 national holidays. People work hard, and there is stress (after all, it's WORK, not play), but it is very manageable compared to many organizations in Silicon Valley.

    Cons

    As with any growing organization, there are management challenges. The company sometimes lacks interdepartmental transparency and communication - a situation that leadership is addressing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire the best and the brightest. Don't settle for mediocre hires even with scarce human resources.

    Pros

    Overall, the company is moving in the right direction regarding software development, though there are still problems. Flexible schedule. Free snacks. Free dinner every day. Free lunch once a week. Gym. Team outings are paid by the company.

    Cons

    Very bad organization of different teams interacting with each other. One team blocked by another is a normal thing. Some approaches used during development of software are very questionable and bring a lot of hassle without any benefit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some people experienced in software development to organize development processes. Teams constantly blocked is waste of company's money.

    Pros

    RMS is an enterprising company to work at, with plenty of opportunity for job growth. With the upcoming release of RMS(one), the company is a very exciting place to work due to the changes internally, and those within the market. RMS has always been the leader in the cat modelling sphere, which is a fascinating area to work in - I am able to combine my interest in science, in particular geophysics, with the business world. Everyone at RMS is friendly, with regular pub trips and team building activities.

    Cons

    My particular job requires flying around a lot which was very exciting to start with, but I now try to base myself at home more.

    Friendly and stimulating working environment. Very smart colleagues that share great ideas so that you constantly get an additional motivation. Innovative in the business, this is the place where the brillian ideas for the insurance market get implemented!

    Within the flow of new ideas there is a natural selection so that many very interesting thing don't get implemented. Also within the large organization priorities and deadlines are not always clear.

    Pros

    RMS has a special culture with a great proportion of the employees being extremely passionate and energetic. Being an innovative growth organization requires frequent change which is coupled with great career opportunities and growth. Those who are courageous enough to adapt quickly, seize these opportunities and bring fellow colleagues along can achieve great success.

    Cons

    With great passion for RMS and what we do it's sometimes difficult to switch off because its in my blood. But honestly, I'm grateful to be in a career that I enjoy at a company I'm proud to be a part of and have helped shape over the years. I'm thankful that I have been patient enough and smart enough to stick with RMS over the past 10+ years through the evolution of this organization and personally share in it's success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate and acknowledge our employees as they are our greatest asset! Our employees are integral to our past current and future success.
