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

Contract Employee (Former Employee) –  Lakeland, FLMarch 2, 2018
A typical day at work was very long (13+ hours). I learned how to properly, & safely, handle food. You had to be sales driven, and able to work very independently, which could be challenging. The most enjoyable part of the job was the freedom.
Pros
flexible schedule
Cons
travel

Never got off the ground
Project Manager for FDOT project (Former Employee) –  Tampa FLJune 24, 2017
This company had one main project, the FDOT project. The rest of their work was fill in around the FDOT project. The leadership was poor. The day to day manager had no experience and was going to school part time studying International Finance and was quite immature. The General Manager was often drunk or hung over. The main office was in Canada and had little contact and no control.
It was a disaster waiting to happen.
Pros
Steady pay check
Cons

Underwriter (Former Employee) –  remote, AZJune 8, 2017
Middle management would benefit from a shake up. Overall, if you're a contract underwriter your position may be tenuous but that's to be expected. If you are a permanent employee, it's a great place to work.

MI Underwriter (Former Employee) –  RemoteJune 2, 2017
Radian is a good company but be prepared for lay offs.You are hired as a contract employee for 6 months but that will turn into a year, then a year and a half. If there is not any volume, contract employees are the first to go without warning.
