    Stepping Stone

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIt is a good stepping stone for young actuarial students, with a good study program and possibilities for career development.

    ConsAt times it seemed like the work could have been more exciting or challenging. Too many spreadsheets that were already programmed made the job less fun.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement was good and the people were friendly. The pay was competitive and the study bonuses were acceptable. Keep up the good work.

    I worked for this company for 27 years.

    Field Representative (Former Employee) Summerville, SC

    ProsManagement leaves you alone, if you do a good job. But, you have to work hard to keep up. I worked as a field rating rep. Sometimes the work load was stressful. I don't recommend field work for slackers. You'll never make it. Average salaries, but good benefits.

    ConsWork loads can be impossible. I retired early because of the travel demands.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's pretty much a waste of time to talk to management! They don't care what you think.

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

    Low stress, decent pay, good people

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Jersey City, NJ

    ProsGreat work/life balance. Very ideal for someone raising a family. The culture is generally very friendly and supportive. Many people stay at this company for a long time.

    ConsThe salaries are generally relatively low compared to similar jobs at other companies. Many employees see this as a fair trade-off for the benefits i mentioned above. Also, the company is changing now that it is publicly traded. There's more pressure for increased revenue. This may gradually have an adverse effect on the happy, low-stress environment.

    Business Model: Backstab Anyone - Crowe Paradis Services

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIt's a job. In this market, I guess having a job is better than not having one?

    ConsIt's difficult to call this a company. There is ZERO organization and it's all about who you know. But even that might not help you, especially when they hire new management who are just looking to make a name for themselves. Which is a bad strategy, considering how small this company is and how anything you do here won't help you if you decide to move on.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWith no opportunities for growth, and where churning out people is a more attractive plan than developing them, the best advice would simply be to close shop for good. IF anyone from HR reads this, I know it will only fall on deaf ears.

    But for anyone else, please take this review to heart if you consider working here. The grass has not been greener on this side of the fence, and will never be for this company. Verisk should be ashamed to call this company part of their "family."

    OK company to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    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
