Productive, fun work environment
Staff Engineer (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 20, 2018
A typical work day with Radian entailed making engineering calculations, writing and/or reviewing reports and going out into the field to sample (varied media). A matrix management style was incorporated and it worked better for some than others. The workplace culture was overall good with staff working together and learning from each other. The hardest part of this job was writing reports. Often these reports were to be written by certain people but sometimes micro-management would give way which I believe hurt the developing writer. The most enjoyable part of this job was the "learning" environment that was implemented.
Pros
Flexible work schedule
Cons
Could get pigeon-holed if not careful

Sales (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXOctober 12, 2018
Leadership within this company is entirely oppressive and, in my opinion, very controlling. There was little praise and a lot of fear around job security and goals always moving. Commission sales people goals would change without explanation and the concern over competition was fearful at best. Not a healthy environment knowing you are never off of work and asked to get things done in 30 min on a day off.

QC Analyst-Reviewer / Closing Specialist (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAJuly 6, 2018
a typical day can change daily or hourly. Management skill set was underdeveloped for the industry and was inconsistent in procedures and decision making issues. Employee development was based on a personal level and not a professional level. Management lacked the ability to train team members efficiently and internal advancement was non existent.
Cons
developed team members based on personal relationship-hired their friends frequently

Co-Op (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PADecember 9, 2018
I was an intern at the company. I had a great experience because my managers were always willing to help and provided great career guidance. I took away a great deal of experience from my six months working here.

Analyst (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLAugust 19, 2018
One day you work, the next day you dont... there is no guarantee to earn money. And no training for personal development or advancement. Managment is very buddy buddy, so if you dont know the right person, you are overlooked for just about everything

Manager (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAMay 29, 2018
Radian was a tremendous place to work at one time with only advancement being an issue. Now all leadership has changed in past 18 months and new leadership is unclear on direction of company. The best people are leaving and moral is low.

Cons
Low moral and lack of leadership

anonymous (Former Employee) –  Philadephia, PAMay 22, 2018
Upper management has had so many changes within the past several years that it's unclear what direction Radian is heading in as a company. So many good people have left leaving it an unstable place to work.
Pros
Recreation activities
Cons
high turnover rate

Radian
Sr. Analyst (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAMay 1, 2012
Radian values technical people. Radian was a great place to work until some of the executive team moved on.

My executive was great at managing up, but managing across and down was definitely not the strong suit. Projects were interesting and varied, but if all was not perfect you were subjected to a lot of bad behavior.

Radian pays very well, not sure why they are so much higher than other organizations, but always paid more than what they needed to pay.

If you had a special talent, you could hold the organization hostage demanding more money than anyone else would be willing to pay.
Pros
work life balance, co-workers were awesome, highly compensated
Cons
benefits were diminished year over year, culture became hostile and competitive

Work environment, Pto

Network Engineer (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHJanuary 22, 2018
Recent changes in org structure have decremented the workplace quality.
Otherwise, pretty easy going. Best part is that you have exposure to a number of technologies. Not stuck in a department doing the same thing repeatedly.
Pros
PTO and Benefits
Cons
No longer providing training.

Great Place to Work - Too Bad it's Long Gone
Anomymous (Former Employee) –  Austin, TexasNovember 4, 2014
Radian was absorbed into a larger corporation at the expense of it's collaborative and team oriented culture. Work was almost like family life. You enjoyed working together with some of the brightest minds in the business
Pros
Collaborative and congenial work atmosphere, Bright technical minds and high quality science and enginering.
Cons
Privately held company often led to a country club approach to joining management.
