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

    Pros

    -Young company, smart people
    -Interesting projects
    -Management will let you take larger roles on projects when you are ready
    -Great parties and people
    -Bonus structure is outstanding
    -401k profit sharing is extremely generous
    -The EPs are all great, understanding people. If you have an issue, you can go to them and they are very accommodating.
    -Flat structure

    Cons

    -Work/life balance is challenging. Hours can fluctuate substantially depending on projects.
    -You are expected to be available at almost any time, which makes it difficult to "unplug" from work. Phone calls for work on weekends and weeknights can be common depending on your position
    -Limited resources. Management prioritizes urgent projects and R&D/long-term improvements get pushed back or never happen
    -Work quality can be low, and management needs to do a better job reviewing things before they are sent to clients. When things are wrong, the focus is on "finger-pointing" instead of finding a long-term solution.
    -Retention problems with mid-level employees. There are many highly experienced workers and employees with <3 years of experience but fewer in the 4-7 year range.
    -Infrequent review process
    -Inconsistent project management
    -Client first, employees second. But this is expected in a consulting position.

    Advice to Management

    -The management/review process needs to be rethought
    -Provide more work/life balance to employees and retention will improve

    Pros

    Free coffee and not much else

    Cons

    I really feel bad for anyone that works in the Indianapolis office (especially in PRM). I hope you find a better job somewhere else.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Milliman full-time

    Pros

    Perception that offices in other regions treat staff fairly. A few outings and events offered. Some of the staff are nice.

    Cons

    Diverse opinions are not entertained or viewed as challenging authority. Certain people are expected to be seen and not heard. It is percieved as rude to have a view that differs from management or to dare to express a different view or opinion.

    This does not breed trust.

    No matter what you bill or how you bill, you are treated as if you are trying to cheat their system for bonuses. Clear failure to realize that not everyone is motivated by money.

    Advice to Management

    Don't fear diverse opinions; embrace them. Create an environment where everyone feels safe enough to express their views (you don't have to adopt them all, but foster a "safe to speak up culture")

    "Terrified of Diversity"

    I worked at Milliman full-time

    Pros

    Free soda. If you fall within a certain select group, you get to attend industry conferences.

    Cons

    Makes no attempt to create a diverse environment. All talk; no action. People of certain races are not welcome or treated in a manner different from the others.

    Improper sharing of disability information internally by those at the top. (ADA?)

    Petty environment with a lot of gossip. Expect to be dissected and abused if you are different in any way. Unfortunately, to your hearing.

    If you want to work in a lily white environment with a couple of Asians sprinkled here and there, Milliman Tampa is the place for you. Or expect to be used and dumped.

    Advice to Management

    They don't care, they like things the way they are and have no intention of changing.
    However some trainings on inclusion and diversity (in forms- race, age, gender, disability) and actual implementation would not hurt.
