    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Radian Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work from home, good management support (Team Lead’s always available and extremely knowledgeable). Fair pay, and good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Too many layoffs (4 groups of people in an 18 month period). After each layoff, the workload increased for those remaining, minimum quotas were raised to impossible levels, while trying to maintain good quality reviews (nearly impossible to do both). The new senior management is cutting staff in the short-term, but it won’t be prepared when the volume increases again. Could be a critical mistake for the company’s future.

    Advice to Management

    Play the long-game if you want to be a number one player in the industry. The previous CEO did this and the company was stronger because of it.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Radian Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Profit sharing, stock options, high salary, work from home from time to time

    Cons

    Where to start.... If you are an engineer that only wants to do what and how you are to to do things and collect a pay check, this place is for you. If however you put thought and pride in to your code. Run, Run away screaming, the faster the better. The environment will suck the life out of you within a year. Unless you are part of the good ole' boys network. Then all is well!There are a lot of 10+ year employees...

      Cons

      Philadelphia office can be a little bit laid back and slow to action. Certain areas in the organization are slow to make decisions. Company overall is doing too many things at the same time. Lots of catch up to do on the Clayton side of the businesses. Lots of technology debts remains. Lots of old, outdated processes in the company remain unchallenged.
