    I worked at Milliman full-time

    Pros

    * Good pay
    * Nice downtown location

    Cons

    * Company suffers from senior management which cannot commit to any efforts beyond roughly 4 months. In seeking to effect change, I was told it was unlikely I would get sustained leadership support beyond that time frame because they will shift priorities and forget existing commitments
    * As a result, culture is one of chaos
    * Leadership openly calls the culture one of "fallow IP" while being the root cause of the failure to develop IP
    * No work life balance at all
    * Hostile work environment
    * Engineers are seen as a means to an end, and not solution providers
    * Can't trust anything you are told by partner teams
    * Some people have been in their position so long and are so embedded in corporate culture this company will never change while those people hold those positions
    * Openly jokes about not meeting industry/partner commitments
    * Leadership openly jokes about how it does not care about corporate culture

    Advice to Management

    The fact that senior leadership cannot commit to any long-term engineering objectives, and sees engineering as slaves, the company culture will not improve.

    I have been working at Milliman full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked for several large companies and several smaller companies, and Milliman IntelliScript is honestly the best place I've worked. I feel employees are respected and treated as professionals. Employees are given what they need to succeed, and then management more-or-less gets out of the way. I don't feel micro-managed; instead it's a collaborative relationship.

    Cons

    The only con is that Milliman IntelliScript is growing rapidily (if that can be considered a con) and that means there is always a lot of work to do. But if you like to stay busy, this is a great place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be open and transparent. Your leadership is fantastic and appreciated. Continue to be as visible as possible.

    I worked at Milliman full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Team members have very good backgrounds.

    Cons

    Something wrong inside of the company. Even the Millman back of it, it still has a lot of problems inside. Many employees complained this.
    It is not very very very .....very unstable. They make decision suddenly for change the company structure.
    It messed up from the employees and the boss. You never know what gonna happened and what idea boss gonna change.
    People look nice, polite and welcoming but actually, it does not mean you are really welcomed. You will not be treated valued in this company. Since even the HR, the manager they do not have the right to say something, It seems everything just depends on the Boss. So the people you met will treat you different two ways for in front of you and back to you. Do not believe anything they promised, otherwise you will be totally tricked.
    Boss only care about the benefits, not single humanity, not any caring of employee.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not go this company. very rude and cannot be believed. save your life not go!

    Pros

    Excellent environment for employees with good work/personal life balance. Great retirement and health insurance benefits. Flexible hours. Likes to promote from within.

    Cons

    Some management areas could use some work as they like to micro-manage employees, but that tends to be a management issue, not company.

    Advice to Management

    Don't ask anything of your employees that you wouldn't do yourself.
