Graphic Designer (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – November 13, 2018
I've worked at Milliman for over two years and while my time here has not been all bad, it's definitely been a step back in my career. I came into Milliman with a strong portfolio and with some sort of plan in mind for where I wanted my career to go. I was burned out from my last job, which was highly creative, but had little reward or places to grow. I was looking forward to a little brain break and I got what I asked for.
I learned pretty quickly that the designers here are pretty much production designers. There is very little creative thought that goes into our daily jobs. When we do decide to flex our creative skills, we're quickly shot down by a team leader who has no design or creative background. This person is the queen of micro-managing. I don't want to be too dramatic, but it's pretty soul crushing. I need something that will work those creative muscles more often and is more creatively satisfying.
With all that said, the perks are that you have a flexible work schedule and everyone in the office is pretty nice. Cons, they will never hire on a full-time designer because they are uber budget conscious.
Benefits Analyst (Current Employee) – NJ – October 30, 2018
The practice used to take care of their employees. Now the focus seems to be to move most work offshore and squeeze as much as possible out of the employees that remain. It is not uncommon to work late, on weekends, or holidays. Management is poor and lacks any real leadership qualities.
The company might be better in other offices since the structure is really like a franchisee model but with little direction from corporate.
Management (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – September 24, 2018
Great place to work. Family like environment. All willing to help each other when needed. Internal growth, if you apply yourself and go after it. Many learning opportunities. Great benefits .that don't break the bank.
Be careful who you make friends with...not all are trustworthy.
Employee Events, Bingo, Lunch, Gift Cards, Free Drinks, Great Benefits
Long story short, Education Counselors there are overworked, underpaid, and not respected. 995% travel and you'd better not be late on an expense report with 97 receipts and don't complain. Terrible management and they couldn't care less about employees.
Health - Actuarial Intern (Former Employee) – Brookfield, WI – July 22, 2018
Standard consulting place, you work on multiple projects at one time and might have to stay super late one day and may leave super early the next. If you don't mind that kind of thing, this is a good place for you.
Milliman is a good place to get experience but a poor place for career growth. Promotions from within are limited. The company runs on some “hard and fast” rules only when it benefits those in command.
ACTUARIAL ANALYST (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – January 27, 2018
Milliman hires extremely talented individuals so you're always working with brilliant people. On top of being incredibly intelligent, most employees also have great social skills which makes them a joy to work alongside.
Remote availability, Free dinners if you're working late, Intramural teams. Bonus pay for overtime.
Seasonal work swings are pretty extreme, First half of the calendar year accounts for 60-70% of work.
Healthcare Consultant/Product Manager (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – December 21, 2017
You will not get a lot done here because everyone is old and stodgy and wants to hold on to their job doing a few thing a day. They have a vesting period for the profit sharing that means you will not actually have anything saved for 4+ years of being there.
Retirement Team Lead-Email Team (Former Employee) – , Tx – December 18, 2017
Great Job to Work for and I recommend it to anyone that has great customer service skills. They provide great training and allow you the chance to get the full experience of learning how to do the job well.
