    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.
