    I have been working at Milliman full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    -Unmatched resources of a large company, but work teams have a small local feel
    -Entrepreneurial feel
    -Make your own destiny. There are countless opportunities to be imaginative and develop new solutions for clients, regardless of your level.
    -Unlike other companies there are not a set number of senior positions. When consultants deliver excellent results and their client base grows, new senior positions get created.
    -Compensation is closely tied to your contribution (not just number of hours), those who add more value to the company are compensated more. Salaries are average, but bonuses are well above other company bonuses for average and above average employees.
    -Flexible hours
    -Work with brilliant people
    -Low turnover, especially after working for Milliman for a year or two. Below average employees tend to filter out due to the self driven atmosphere.

    Cons

    -Experiences vary by office and practice, since individual practices have a great deal of autonomy
    -The work is more demanding than a fixed 9-5 job, but you can manage your own time
    -Review process is informal. Feedback is given throughout the year as work is done on different projects and may not be summarized well at the end of the year.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a little more time summarizing performance and feedback at the end of each year.

    Office Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Milliman (San Francisco, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Very bizarre and inhuman.

    I applied, got an email asking me to take a video questionnaire talking to myself, or my Mac’s camera so to speak. No one on the other side.

    What’s wrong with telephone screenings, or meeting in person?

    You need to feel the energy, for lack of a better word, of the person you are interviewing and vice versa. That doesn’t come across on a one sided video you are answering questions to.

    The questions were super easy. And they do this so that they can show the video to several people and save time.

    How cold, I don’t want to work for a company that screens human beings that way. Also very lazy!

    I gave half effort answers because I wasn’t interested.

    It obviously came across.

    Columbia University - Arushi Arora: Data Science for Predicting Risk

    Data scientist, student advocate, and teaching assistant. These are a few of the roles Arushi Arora held as a master's student at the Data Science Institute. Before coming to Columbia, Arora wavered between pursuing a career in computer science or data science, but an internship with Microsoft the summer before her senior year in college helped her reach a decision.
