    I have been working at Origami Risk full-time (More than 5 years)


    - very open/accessible senior leadership
    - willing to walk away from deals that don't make sense or we can't be certain we will help the client succeed
    - path for advancement
    - excellent benefits, tuition reimbursement
    - a tremendously fun and supportive culture- best company I've worked for in my 20-year career, including stints in multiple industries in and out of insurtech
    - collaborative environment means service team members are not stuck on an island when they have challenges with clients- can call on anyone for support or expertise
    - salespeople are encouraged and supported rather than threatened and bribed


    Not so much a "con" as guidance to avoid a bad situation- younger employees or recent grads will do well to apply for positions in one of the 5 offices rather than attempting to work remotely.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Origami Risk in June 2018.


    Before meeting me or talking to me over the phone I was asked to perform an "aptitude" test. To be completely candid, I was a bit shocked at the request because I have over 15 years of experience as a DBA but I completed the test nonetheless. I didn't score well enough to advance to the "actually speaking to a person" phase which was, frankly, degrading. In 2018 it's unsettling that companies are still relying upon psychometric testing to assess candidates, and in this case it was a bit like being told I was not intelligent enough to interview. In retrospect I'm glad because the rigidity portends a bad work environment.

    Interview Questions

    • There were 4 questions in all, each ranging between 15-20 minutes apiece in this Walden Aptitude Test. The only one I had any trouble with required the candidate to guess at how to provide substantiating details to the answer. Additionally, this web-based "test" was poorly formatted and I found it hard to concentrate ob actually answering the questions. The test designer clearly had no experience in UI/UX design.....   Answer Question
