OK company to work for.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Verisk Analytics full-time

ProsCompany is in a great sector with lots of growing opportunities.

ConsLeadership lacks of vision and one coherent strategy to improve its performance.
Management lacks of interests or desire to invest in its people, and emphasis solely on cost savings and overselling.
Management seems to care more about internal political fight than helping their employees to succeed.

Advice to Senior ManagementForm a consistent strategy across all the divisions. Invest more in the people, and infrastructure to fuel the growth.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Steady, stable employment, great people to work with and outside activities such as bowling and softball

Sales Consultant (Current Employee)
Jersey City, NJ

I have been working at Verisk Analytics full-time for more than 10 years

ProsFlextime, raises and bonuses, recently started to focus on opportunities to innovate

ConsNot enough focus on innovation and new product development, but this is changing in my area

Advice to Senior ManagementSet up units of staff to only work on new product development with support from senior management or growth will begin to stagnate. Grant stock options to staff other than Assistant vice presidents and higher if they contribute significantly to revenue growth

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Use to be a good company, until they started hiring new management

Analyst (Current Employee)
Jersey City, NJ

I have been working at Verisk Analytics full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThere is nothing good left to say about this Verisk.

ConsManagement is horrible and only there to one of two reason: To get vested in the stock options (6 years) and to insult and belittle anyone and everyone.

HR is horrible and will only ignore your problems, even if you are bullied or harassed.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop hiring people who have not had jobs in years as directors and anyone who abuses/bullies their employees.

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

Overrated company!!!

Senior Account Executive (Current Employee)
Jersey City, NJ

I have been working at Verisk Analytics full-time for more than 8 years

ProsOwns a monopoly in the industry. Sales reps are order takers on the Rules, Rates and Forms side of the business. Easy sales. Great commissions.

ConsWeak senior management. Monopolistic approach will soon have multiple competitors and their revenues will decrease drastically. 15% mandatory annual increases in client billing will not last in the marketplace.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe very concerned about your future. Your sales management team has never sold anything.

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