    I have been working at Radian Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You make your own schedule. Ok health insurance.

    Cons

    Micromanaging. Constant addiction of responsibilities. Sr. Mgmt never satisfied with production and your goals increase every 6 months. Your pay and commission are lowered as you grow the business which is completely opposite of what one would expect! Greedy when it comes to pay! Old school mentality. Everyone afraid to speak up. Sr. Mgmt keeps adding additional services that you must sell. No potential for growth or increase in pay

    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.

    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 here that are complacent in the way things were once done. Management does not foster, encourage or appear to want to innovate in any form. The status quo is good enough, after all we are making money, is the mantra.

    I worked at Radian Group

    Pros

    If you are a lazy and non-motivated person, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    I’ve worked for different organizations throughout my career and this is one of the worst organizations I’ve ever contracted for. The biggest con is the lack of forward thinking technology, no processes and amateur/immature managers or also known there as VP’s and AVP’s. They seem to like lazy and non motivated people.
