    Pros

    Great place to work. People that care about their job and provide support when needed. The benefits are nice and very competitive pay scale. Excellent opportunities for learning and growing for those who are motivated.

    Cons

    You normally will not get much mentoring or management.

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

    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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Probably the three day old coffee sitting in the kitchen is the best thing about the company at the moment.

    Cons

    Unfriendly management, bureaucracy, unclear direction from management, not a place to be at if you want to learn.

    Pros

    A very friendly environment
    Great learning experience
    Multiple Opportunities for growth and education
    If you like traveling, then good amount of opportunities may come if you show interest.
    Ability to work remotely.

    Cons

    A lot depends on the team you're in, but for me personally, the work is not shared with any other member which makes it hard to take paid time off. You still are on call if anything urgent comes up and need to work to get that resolved. The back up provided may not be adequate enough because of their lack of experience with your particular area.

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

    Pros

    You work with some of the smartest people in the industry, great benefits, you’ll learn a ton!

    Cons

    Internal competition and politics should be studied. Your chances of rising to the top depend on the current EP’s situation. Not much diversity at the top although they’re changing that. Working hours are crazy.

    Advice to Management

    Use more positive reinforcement than punitive approaches

    I have been working at Milliman full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    -Unmatched resources of a large company, but work teams have a small local feel
    -Entrepreneurial feel
    -Make your own destiny. There are countless opportunities to be imaginative and develop new solutions for clients, regardless of your level.
    -Unlike other companies there are not a set number of senior positions. When consultants deliver excellent results and their client base grows, new senior positions get created.
    -Compensation is closely tied to your contribution (not just number of hours), those who add more value to the company are compensated more. Salaries are average, but bonuses are well above other company bonuses for average and above average employees.
    -Flexible hours
    -Work with brilliant people
    -Low turnover, especially after working for Milliman for a year or two. Below average employees tend to filter out due to the self driven atmosphere.

    Cons

    -Experiences vary by office and practice, since individual practices have a great deal of autonomy
    -The work is more demanding than a fixed 9-5 job, but you can manage your own time
    -Review process is informal. Feedback is given throughout the year as work is done on different projects and may not be summarized well at the end of the year.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a little more time summarizing performance and feedback at the end of each year.

    Pros

    Very smart and friendly co-workers! There is ample of opportunities to be involved in projects as you grow in your career. Great hours

    Cons

    Very quiet. Only pensions, small office. You tend to lose motivation when you are in a boring field like this. I think there needs to be better communication from management

    Advice to Management

    I would try to expand the business to something outside of pensions if possible. Great work with managing time and project allocation.
