    I have been working at Radian Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Overall exceptional benefits and comp packages for valuable people (though, for some people who aren't valuable as well...). Also a great place for people who want more exposure to senior decision makers.

    Cons

    Management hasn't been doing an outstanding job lately and an overall C-suite desperation to deflect blame and bolster performance has fed a slowly growing divide between exec management and employees, including top performers. Loved the management team when I started here a few years ago but gotta say that the past year has left some great people putting feelers out to take their talents elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on C-suite versus employee relationships: out of the box lines during town halls and employee calls don't actually cut it;it's 2016, not 1996 - this is a very important thing to consciously think about

    Business-wise: DO BETTER: listen to your smart employees when they advise, listen to your customers more carefully. Again, it's 2016, not 1996, really gotta do business like that's the case.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Some flexibility. Remote work available. Room for advancement.

    Cons

    Confusión on how to run a department. Cut hours due to no work. Performed two duties for the price of one. Supervisory staff needs training. Also supervisor pick and choose their favorites. They post jobs when people have already been in trainING for the position. Your chances of getting the promotion is zero.

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive in your departments. Less experience staff is adding confusion resulting in resignation of current employees.

    Pros

    The people and teamwork were supportive if you want to learn and excel. It was a friendly environment.

    Cons

    Management was not supportive and selective on who they want to focus on. Many felt they had to prove themselves either through network or events.

    I worked at Radian Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company rewards initiative and has a good policy in place for training. Good 401k plan match. Great people! Couldn't ask for better coworkers; friendly and willing to offer help when needed. I actually liked my job and enjoyed going into the office.

    Cons

    Has developed a track record of "cleaning house" annually. Some departments seem to be targeted for downsizing on a regular basis.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of choosing the same people to take on additional job duties and special assignments, offer the chance to anyone who exhibits willingness and welcomes the opportunity. Not only does doing the former leave important resources untapped, it is unfair to repeatedly give certain people the chance to demonstrate their abilities while ignoring the potential of others.

    I have been working at Radian Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Radian has wonderfully talented people on its team and the culture encourages collaboration and teamwork.

    Cons

    The work-life balance is nil and you will be challenged if you need to, say, leave to do something for your SPOUSE or your KID. That's unacceptable for me.

    Advice to Management

    Learn management practices from successful firms in similar or completely different industries. The human skills from management is sorely lacking.
