    I have been working at Risk Management Solutions full-time

    Pros

    RMS has really turned some important corners in the past two years. The company is hiring and the big question has moved on from "can we do this?" to "when can we do this?". There is a much greater sense of purpose and I'm now very encouraged by what we can achieve and deliver.

    Cons

    We've spent time in recent years earning back client trust - that has had an impact on RMS. There is still work to be done on that front (but made big steps forward). It's an intense place to work, which can be challenging. You need to be able to deal with a lot of change!

    - Can feel a little "always on" given the prevalence of electronic communication and working across timezones - but isn't that the norm these days?
