    Former Employee - Underwriter in Philadelphia, PA

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

    Pros

    Great company for work-life balance and team focused culture. Convenient access to management, sales, and support staff. Builds cross functional teams to avoid layoffs.

    Cons

    As a remote employee, I would have liked opportunities to physically interact with other employees

    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.

    Former Employee - Underwriter in Philadelphia, PA

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

    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.
