a good work place with bad management
Data Engineer (Former Employee) –  Jersey City, NJJune 8, 2016
Since beginning, I was so excited to work in such a good company with a lot of growth opportunity. The first months of being in Verisk spent participating in series of trainings as expected. I was so fresh and inspired to apply my knowledge and learn new things in this new work environment. However, as we moved forward and time past, I started getting less and less passionate and it became more like a dreaming instead of planning. My manager was too busy to have a good conversation and communication.

Super Chaotic
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Jersey City, NJSeptember 13, 2016
A lot of overlapping and super chaotic. It is not a streamlined organization and far having processes and functionality in place. A lot of cutting corners and the company will not spend to have proper support of teams.

Field Representative
Field Representative (Former Employee) –  San Francisco Bay AreaOctober 8, 2014
You are based out of your home and receive orders of companies that have been selected for inspection. The job requires knowledge of the insurance industry which is very extensive. All the regulations, compliance codes, and safety restrictions need to be known. If you miss something in your inspections there could be serious consequences such as monetary losses for the insurance companies or even worse injury or death of people. Management says that they are always available for questions as are other employees, and for the most part this is true. However, many times no one is available to help you and it is up to you to figure it out. This can lead to wasted time to make sure you are following ISO/Verisk rules and the customers rules as well.

A typical day with this job depends on if you are in the field performing inspections or at home writing up reports. The field days are the best by far because you see many things that most people will not get to see and meet lots of people. You learn a lot about different industries and how business flows with these companies. The hardest part of the job is getting appointments for inspections. Management says to get all of your inspections into 1 to 2 days, but this difficult to do as these companies are available at the time you give. When you call most people don't want to talk to you because they think you are selling them insurance.

If you are a strong self starter, are knowledgeable about the insurance industry, and can handle a very fast paced high stress job you would be fine in this position. There is VERY little chance
  more... for promotions and moving up. The benefits are very good and you get a nice 401k and stock options.  less
Pros
Benefits, meeting lots of people.
Cons
Little help, lots of ambiguity, poor management, HIGH stress.

Productive & Pleasant
Project Assistant (Current Employee) –  Jersey City, NJJuly 27, 2015
Productive and pleasant company to work for. Each employee brings to the table, something different to offer the company. Management is very supportive and helpful in all aspects. This is a big and growing company, but there's lots of room to thrive as an individual.

Easy work/life balance with little room for improvement
Verisk Innovative Analytics- Data Scientist (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAAugust 5, 2015
Very high turnover because they hardly promote from within. Tendency for company to hire higher-level analysts rather than promote from within.
Very relaxed environment with little to no stress but you get what you don't get paid for.
