    Pros

    RMS has gone through a great deal of change over the past few years, but the stars really do seem to be aligning. They successfully released a new product last year and are on track to release a significant update later this year.

    The new management team has done a great job of allowing autonomy and have brought in top-notch new talent.

    Cons

    Many independent areas of the company continue to try to do their own thing and not focus on a cohesive strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in building from the core and not trying to do everything at once

    Pros

    Competitive hiring salaries for full time employees.

    Ability to work in a variety of reporting structures with a single job description.

    Cons

    "In flux" does not describe what is happening. The company is shedding employees daily with no sign of stopping due to CONSTANT reorganizations. Discussions of stock options and "transparency" at all levels have led to a miopic executive vs rank-and-file attitude. This would be tolerable if the company weren't totally failing to staff properly and insisting that previously set deadlines be met by an ever decreasing "team first" workforce. Pep talks consist of how important we are as a company, while demonstrating how unimportant the hard core working units are by shuffling their bosses like a deck of cards.

    Advice to Management

    Please, please stop changing the goalposts while keeping the expected deadlines. Be honest with yourselves about the amount you are asking loyal teams to do. Stop talking about culture while letting your culture dissolve under waves of terminations. Culture is not bought or spoken. It is earned through years of trust.

    I worked at Risk Management Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free lunch on Thursdays.

    Commute.

    You will be well trained in company politics at all levels. Which could very well be useful down the line in your own career.

    Cons

    Work life balance is pretty bad. I felt overworked and underpaid most of the time there.

    You will be told "It's a big company that still wants to operate like a startup". Which basically means you will work like you are in a startup but you wont get any richer if the company succeeds. Though you will face the axe if the company fails.

    There is always a ton of work to do so it makes it hard to take time out and look for other opportunities. Think twice about this before getting stuck in this quicksand.

    Advice to Management

    Work on building solid company culture. It feels like a bunch of school kids are running the show.

    Pros

    Nice offices, free lunch on Thursdays, good pay

    Cons

    After two rounds of layoffs in the last six months (that included some very long-time employees who were seemingly let go out of the blue) it's hard to feel comfortable working here.

    Advice to Management

    Nobody expects a job for life, but conducting multiple rounds of layoffs is nerve-wracking.

    Pros

    Benefits, pay, colleagues, free lunch, snacks, etc.

    Cons

    Company is in disarray. Every team, with the exception of the executive team, are stretched thin and quickly burning out. It won't be long before there's a mass exodus of people running to the many other, less stressful and better run, opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Great leaders inspire and galvanise the masses during turbulent times, they don't cause people to divide and disband. Pay attention to what's working and what isn't by looking around and asking your employees, not by looking at an org chart. Don't claim to be client centric and then disband the one true client centric team, as the rumour mill suggests you plan to do. I've recently had an opportunity to get to know them, and they're a great bunch of smart, talented people. You too should understand everyone's role from the perspective of how they help the company on a daily basis. Go over and talk to them, understand them, hear their passion. These are people's lives, which used to count for something in this company. Shame we're all just boxes on an org chart now. I'm challenging you, Mr. Shah, be the great leader you used to be before it's too late to make a difference.

    Challenging Projects. Great Co-Workers. Great Potential. Good Benefits

    Cons

    C - Level demands more and more while maintaining a myopic focus on cost control.

    Advice to Management

    Continuing cutting cost for short-term profit margins will not lead to long-term success.

    Pros

    Good pay with good perks!

    Cons

    CEO has lost his mojo!
    Seems to be on a hamster's wheel now. Continues to rejig his team every 6 months but with same end result....no delivery of key cloud platform or increase in sales.
    The Service, Sales, and Cloud delivery teams are in complete disarray and DMGT will be well served now replacing the CEO for his failed execution.

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like a hamster on a wheel.
    DMGT should take the tough call to replace the CEO!
