    Design your own destiny at this company.

    I worked at Milliman full-time

    Pros

    The bonus arrangement is in a class by itself: unlimited. Once a threshold is reached of billed & collected hours, every hour beyond that, you get 50% of your billing rate. It is not uncommon to double or triple one's salary. The resources in regard to data, tools, expertise is without equal and I've worked at 4 other firms. They don't even come close. Very, very generous yearly contribution to retirement plan because the firm is doing so well, financially.

    Cons

    You are expected to work your butt off and you better be prepared to.
