    I have been working at Verisk Analytics full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Able to work from home.

    Cons

    At annual review, you're compared to your team peers, not your work completed, attitude as team player, attitude towards work, etc. Expect several hours of overtime without compensation.

    I worked at Verisk Analytics for less than a year

    Pros

    It's a great company to work for. Very employee-friendly and engaging work culture.

    Cons

    Please beware of your manager. In my particular case the manager was the worst I've ever had come across in 20 years. He will publicly humiliate, shout and mentally abuse you. In this particular case manager was hired from HBO which has very bad work culture especially they treat contractors as slave. He comes from the same work culture. The team had low morale, high negativity, toxic environment because of this particular manager. Verisk certainly did a mistake to hire him because he has not only spoilt our team but also spoiling Verisk Brand name. The worst Micromanager. He'll make sure everyone is in office and doesn't allow work from home. He thinks people working from home don't work I think he is carrying this impression from HBO company from where he is hired from.

    Pros

    Work from home, tools needed for the job are provided.

    Cons

    Raises are provided on an annual basis only and are getting smaller and smaller each year. It’s obvious the company does not value the hard work performed by staff. Not much motivation provided by the below average raises that are handed out now. What is going on?

    Pros

    Use of latest and greatest technology. Get a day in a week to work from home.

    Cons

    Not a very good appraisal process. Setting up year end goals and objectives has no meaning. Your faith is completely decided by your manager, even if you are outstanding no one cares until your manager sets you up for success. Employees don't even know who the HR is and they are completely controlled by higher executives. Salaries and benefits are much lower than the market.

    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

    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!

    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.
