    I have been working at Milliman full-time

    Pros

    High level of autonomy. Friendly environment. Variety of projects.

    Cons

    Not the most competitive in regards to pay. Not a great on boarding process (HUGE learning curve) Expected to work quite a bit, which has lead to some people burning out.

    Advice to Management

    Disperse work more evenly across teams. Provide more formal training (invest in your staff)

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

    Pros

    Coffee, benefits and easy commute

    Cons

    1) All the employees, outside of the interns and college graduate new hires, were old as dirt, yet I felt like I was transported back to high school with all the gossiping, backstabbing and cliques in this office. Standard for an office environment, sure, but it was on a whole other level in that place. Not only was childlike behavior consistently exhibited there, toxicity was prevalent. So prevalent, it led Milliman Seattle to hire an HR Rep for this office due to many issues and complaints that management often ignored.

    2) The office and some of its practices were extremely archaic, and management had no desire to evolve. This only hinders reaching the highest possible level of efficiency and leads to frustration and exasperation - especially when suggestions for improvement are waved off by management. I felt that I didn't have a voice, and that was disheartening and very annoying.

    3) The turnover rate is ridiculously high. It seemed that an employee was leaving every week or so. If that doesn't concern Milliman, then they have an even bigger issue - one that they probably are still sweeping under a rug like it's not happening and just finding new, unsuspecting people to refill cubicles.

    4) Work-life balance wasn't the greatest. Milliman expects you to forget you have your own life and responsibilities and put them first instead.

    5) Speaking of putting them first, good luck moving ahead in your career without kissing up to The Man. I, for one, refused. Favoritism is key here.

    6) Communication from management to staff was lacking. At times, it was as if management didn't care to properly train or provide adequate materials for reference. You were basically expected to know soon as you stepped foot in the door.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better, be willing to learn what you need to do to retain employees, bring the office to year 2018 and stop running from your staff's problems and fix them.
