    I worked at Risk Management Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company will likely remain alive for quite a while since there are only 2 other companies in North America that does what they do. If you play the politics game well enough, you may not need to do much work. It's OK if you messed up your work today, because it may not matter tomorrow.

    Cons

    The way upper management changes the direction of the company, and lays off good people as a result of that, breaks my heart. My senior manager was one of the smartest guys in the company. But sadly he lost the politics game and got kicked out. The CEO is a nice guy, but unfortunately he inherited the company from his dad, and doesn't know much about the business.

    Pros

    Company where your talent is recognized, if you are persistent and hardworking. Need to be good at technical to survive as it is big data company, domain is little boring but state of the art models and science that's how they are able to sustain in the market as the best.

    Cons

    Strategy is changed without measuring the outcome, because of that teams are frustrated. Sometimes little too much work for some teams but not all of them.

    Pros

    Challenging data problem & history of leadership changes is the reality of RMS. But it gives employees best environment to explore, learn, fail fast and try again. Competitive pay - cutting edge technology - catastrophic risk management domain contributing back to human life.

    Cons

    though it is a downside for the company, for the individuals working here, i see this as a great opportunity to learn - quick to throw away the implementation and start over with a different design/technology
