      I have been working at Risk Management Solutions full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      RMS has some of the best people I've worked with. When things are going well it's a joy to be part of the London modelling team, and I've made friends for life here.

      Cons

      I've worked as a modeler with RMS for almost three years. More than half of my team has left in the last year, and two people are not able to talk about the circumstances of their departure (at least one was fired). Other teams are having similar issues. While RMS is a great place to work when things go well, management can't deal with unhappy employees. They close ranks until people quit, leave from mental health...

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your employees. Let employees give feedback on their managers. Don't tolerate sexual harassment.

      Pros

      RMS has had its fair share of challenges, but new leadership has brought about a lot of change, fresh ideas, and a strong bias for doing what’s right and fair by employees. This also shows in how the expectation of employees has changed - with collaboration, transparency, trust and empowerment all vastly improved as teams lean in with renewed energy.

      Cons

      After so much change in recent years, it’s inevitable that the company is craving organisational stability - a solid foundation to build around. The signs are very encouraging.

      Advice to Management

      Keep pushing us all to be more honest, open and collaborative.

      I worked at Risk Management Solutions full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      When starting out it is very exciting to consider the potential impact you are having as a company i.e. understanding climate and enabling a response/solution from the insurance industry. But this quickly turns nasty.

      Cons

      The company has lost its way. They were hugely success and a negative spiral was enacted from their v11 launch. As a consequence of consecutive poor decisions they have found themselves under performing especially from a software development perspective. This flows directly to everyone else within the company. The frustration quickly turns on its employees and there are mass firings. Joining this company at this moment...

      Advice to Management

      Your people are your strength. They really care about the mission. There is also a lot of cohesion between the teams. But is being eroded by numerous reorgs. If you make bad business decisions then you need to be honest, deal with the problem and face the music. Management like to not do this. Especially Hemant points the fingers elsewhere and people get axed. This is why in October 2016 over half the leadership left...
