    I worked at Risk Placement Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay...kind of? (Only putting because glassdoor is making me write something)

    Cons

    Overall, very negative experience here. I've meant to write this review for a long time, but was honestly so glad to be out of this place that I didn't want to waste my time. Senior management is beyond horrible - they don't care about you as a person 1%. This place is solely "do what you have to do to make more money - regardless of who you have to step on." A lot of it depends who you work under, but honestly, I... wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. The culture is extremely hostile, and there wasn't more than 1 person there that I could trust. When I left - literally everyone I talked to (with the exception of senior management) said "I'm so jealous you are getting out of here."

    Care more about people and stop being so slimy. Money isn't the end all be all.
