    Former Employee - Senior Applications Software Engineer in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at WCIRB full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Well funded (semi-public agency) so company has the time and resources to do things right. Recently implemented new system based on .NET stack and now building it out. Lots of enhancements but also opportunity to build new components. Rarely go into crunch mode but instead work load is challenging but doable.

    Cons

    You will have to learn some of their business which is based on sophisticated actuarial analysis of lots of job related data - not the most common application around or easy to explain to your friends. Also you will spend some time doing what would be called maintenance programming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide some longer term career development paths within the company when someone signs on so they at least know where they might be heading.

    Pros

    Compressed schedule (every other Friday off) was great. Easy commute location and insurance jobs were stable/secure. The IT and clerical jobs did not seem secure.

    Cons

    Company was very slow to change. Opportunity for advancement took years. Lots of beaurocracy and process. Innovation not encouraged.
