    I worked at Verisk Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people. The reputation. The potential. The culture (past). Respect. Did I mention the potential. If Verisk Health can get its act together, there is so much it can do. Recognition for high performers.

    Cons

    Fear of things that are broken will not get better fast enough. Lack of accountability on deadlines. Investment for the future. Commute. Turnover. Too few people doing too much work.

    Advice to Management

    Get parent company to invest in more new development and account services people who are more senior. Understand best practices better and share among customers. Stop letting good people leave.

    Horrible work life balance, terrible leadership, micro-managing at it's finest, lying and back-stabbing...just stay away

    Advice to Management

    There is not enough room to say what needs to be said

    I worked at Verisk Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Co-workers, mainly disillusioned or deluded in limited/unavailable/unattainable growth opportunities or just hanging on to build a retirement fund.
    - PTO; almost four weeks right out of the chute.
    - Well funded; the best equipment, technology, and resources, although clueless management rarely knows how to best utilize it.
    - Often pay over 20% over regional average (prepare for personal compromises in exchange).

    Cons

    - Rampant lack of integrity throughout middle management. They'll lie to you or anyone else and circumvent internal policy or employment/trade regulations at their convenience and your peril; watch for buses in your rear-view.
    - Clients are sold pure fantasy, and production workers are tasked with delivering to ludicrous supporting metrics after the fact, clients are continually misled through poor communication, comical management, and selling out internal colleagues; examples of highly unprofessional client-facing behavior are a daily occurrence.
    - Zero IT Architects staffed since September 2015.
    - System of organizational goal-setting and rational measurement of performance against these goals is not practiced (Systems are deployed, unused); bonuses and merit increases are purely arbitrary.
    - Nepotism and cronyism is your key to success.

    Advice to Management

    Trust but verify; if the numbers don't add up, the auditors for your big acquisition will see it too. Take a breath from making all the pie-in-the-sky promises to your clients as they continually rattle their sabers and do a rigorous self-audit of your organization from the bottom up. Listen to your production-level assets and use that to temper the hype the clowns in the middle are pushing up to you. Verisk touts the human-touch, value the humans in your value stream. Your HR department is dangerously inept to the point of liability; the conflict of interest in management appointment here should be obvious.

    I have been working at Verisk Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    nice location - love the people I work with - very challenging and fast moving.

    Cons

    Culture could be better, we do practice agile but we don't really embrace the agile culture. Some of the perks and other fringe benefits could be better.

    Advice to Management

    add some extras, make work fun, I think we do an awesome job and we should be rewarded for this.

    I worked at Verisk Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very nice people and decent benefits/pay. A lot of the clients are nice but a lot are also not happy with the Verisk software.

    Cons

    The management needs a lot of help. The processes are not very well laid out and the managers have little to zero actual management experience and were just promoted from the rest of people because they needed managers.

    Advice to Management

    Get training for your managers and try to get back in with the regular employees so you aren't so distances from what is actually happening with clients.

    Pros

    Really great benefits package offered
    Matching 401K

    Cons

    If you get communication from the very top, leadership underneath struggles to follow through with the direction.
    High turn over of leaders and managers because you are either stepping on people or being crushed.
    Seems like Company politics rule over company culture

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking out for your friends and look out for the employees

    Pros

    Best PTO policy among 8 companies I've worked for.

    Cons

    Senior management team is no good and the company does not have clear picture of what they can/should build. Turnover is weekly event. I've never seen an office that could lose some 40% of its FTEs in 12-month period.

    Advice to Management

    Do you all really know what are you doing?
