I have been working at Milliman full-time (More than 3 years)
- Good health and retirement benefits.
- Company's entreprenurial spirit creates opportunities to grow professionally
- Lack of communication between senior management and junior staff.
Advice to Management
Get into the weeds a little bit more. Junior members deal with day-to-day challenges of internal clients, and more times than not provide the solutions. They know how internal business affects the outward brand.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Milliman (Seattle, WA).
Milliman is obviously a company with a strong sense of direction, thoughtful governance, and a very professional atmosphere. My first interview was by phone, and wasn't particularly technical or grueling. I sensed throughout the process that Milliman puts a very high value on their culture, which for me perhaps is too stuffy and uptight. In spite of that, the entire process was engaging, and the people they hire are highly capable and professional, perhaps even fun.
Expect very cliche questions about where you see yourself in 5 years, what your best/worst traits are, and expect that those interviewing are in fact not morons by any measure. They're expecting real answers here.
Unfortunately, I was not offered as I do not have a degree, which is a requirement for the position.
If I were to offer some insight to the Milliman infosec leader team, it would be to get with the times. Educated young professionals have no desire to be in debt for 30 years paying off student loans. I suppose I would suggest making the interview process slightly more difficult, and perhaps work to make the culture a little more upbeat. Infosec and regulatory roles can be horribly mundane without a bright culture to foster increased awareness and esprit de corps.
