    I worked at Verisk Analytics full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Flexible time, work from home.

    Cons

    Managers are just bad, they don't take responsability for the way the create plans, etc. They do not help much neither.

    Advice to Management

    Not a good idea to have a team working in JC HQ and have their manager living and working on another state. It is just not doable, especially when manager is not available.

    I have been working at Verisk Analytics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - 401k match and benefits are good - Direct managers are really good people - Work from home

    Cons

    - Pay/raises - Workload is overwhelming which creates more work to do - Micromanagement - you are constantly hounded for work to be completed even though you have a workload that is impossible to do - The scope of knowledge you are expected to know to do the job properly is ridiculous. No one knows how to do everything properly and misinformation is passed around regularly. Verisk expects you to be a "jack of all trades" and the result is a poor product. The insurance companies realize this and that is why they are losing business. - Following the customer requirements is really difficult. You must learn many things on your own

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to streamline work and standardize forms rather than make employees refer to customer requirements to search for all the different nuances of that type of report. Pay raises need to be better. 1% raises do not keep up with inflation/health insurance increases. Manage workload better.

    "2019 Merit increase for field reps unsatisfactory"

    I have been working at Verisk Analytics

    Pros

    Work from home, company car, equipment provided

    Cons

    Upper management does not get the value of their field reps. Field reps are how any revenue is generated to begin with and to not compensate the field reps with a decent annual merit increase is a slap in the face!

    Advice to Management

    Value your field reps and share the wealth with them, as you do amongst yourselves!

    I worked at Verisk Analytics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work from home 1-2 days a week, but that depends on your manager. NJ office is upgraded and has a nice cafe and new innovation lounge.

    Cons

    HR does not take action after complaints. C-level executives like to turn the other way and support only employees that have been around for 20+ years. C-level managers are mostly, if not all white men, no diversity - and promotions are extremely hard. The Verisk Way is to have you wear multiple hats and work on multiple jobs, that do not relate to your job. If you do not agree - then they tell you that you may not be fit for their corporate culture.

    Advice to Management

    Let go of all managers that have worked at the company for 15+ years. If you consider yourself to be an innovate company, then you have to release the old school, micro managing people who like to control and devalue staff. HR - when there are employees that are stressed and report activities that are considered verbally abusive and not right - do something about it.
