I have been working at Risk Management Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Very intelligent modelers, from Stanford and Berkeley. Some very smart people in the trenches.
Been profitable for > 15 years.
Board (parent company) seems to be hands-off.

Cons

Politics has gotten very, very bad now. Too many reorganizations, one every 3 months in development organization. People who only talk, and talk well, are getting promoted, and a lot of talent is leaving. Pushy VPs taking credit for other groups's work.

Company is spending huge amount on logo change, while we are critically short of human capital in other areas.

Advice to Management

Get rid of politics, else long term future is in jeopardy.
Bring back the anonymous question/answer we had on the internal website (Ask the leader).
Seriously review why attrition is so high, talk to anyone who has worked at RMS more than 3 years, and left in last 2 years -- not the perfunctory exit interview. Rather a detailed one, seeking feedback, 30 to 45 days after a person has left.

    Pros

    They will pay you huge amounts of money to fix the problems

    Cons

    they will fire you when they realize that you can't fix the problems, because the problems are all related to lousy senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Jump off a bridge.

    I worked at Risk Management Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are quite a few great employees there to work with. Smart and hard working people. And there is a lot of cool technology to work on.

    Cons

    For a company that excels at catastrophe modeling, it is sure clueless how to model a great company. Upper management celebrate those that make them look good, aka PhD in BS. Those that want to be truthful about issues that, if resolved, could really do a lot of good are shunned or given a "package". And it doesn't matter if you are a new, a veteran, a quiet, or an in your face employee. The MO for these guys is, if you have a dissenting comment, get the hell out.

    Advice to Management

    What ever happened to "our employees are our greatest asset"? Now it is, "limit regrettable attrition", and 5 seconds later, "what's regrettable about this person leaving?". Fire the upper management and get some people who know what a positive working environment is.
