I have been working at Risk Management Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

In the last several years, RMS has completely re-worked its brand, staying true to its core market of catastrophe modeling but making major investments to unify its products into a single platform. As a result of this, excitement within the firm is very high, and management & staff are regarding this as the beginning of a new generation at RMS. Without question, the firm is the industry leader.

Cons

Turnover in the office has been high in the last several years. Not a strong feeling of social relationships within the office. Newark, CA location is somewhat remote within the bay area.

Advice to Management

- Invest more in events that strengthen relationships between staff members to reduce turnover.
- Connect with the resources of the bay area: events in SF to attract younger engineers, office visits for students at Berkeley and Stanford.

    Pros

    Catastrophe risk modeling is very interesting in and of itself - lots of opportunities to use data, scientific knowledge and mathematics to develop better estimates damages and losses. And as the leading company in this space, RMS is a pretty good place to do this. For business people in the insurance industry, there is also a lot of value in having great applications that allow you to really understand the models and work with the model output. For RMS this is an opportunity still waiting to be seized.

    Cons

    Very high turnover with lots of the best people leaving - mostly due to bad management. The CEO is the Founder and he still runs the place like it was his own personal company. Employee input on strategy or improving the day to day culture is not taken seriously. Very political environment.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more. Be less hierarchical in your decision-making.
