    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    if you are desperate and can't find anything else, use this place to find something better.

    Cons

    Excessive overtime with a promise for a variable bonus
    Interns make more money during busy periods because of overtime pay
    Underwriters treat you like their slave
    HQ really does not care about the Waterloo office

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking about change and act
    Employee turnover will only get worse if nothing is done

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Validus as an intern

    Pros

    Very relaxed environment. Amazing manager. Always have work to do. Interns treated very nicely and made a part of everything.

    Cons

    Can be hard sometimes. Lots of change was going on during my time there. Caused me to shift my priority a lot.
