    I have been working at VRC Insurance Systems part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people, there are a lot of long time employees here (10 + years, 15 + years). The pay is above average. Offers sick time in the first year, and then accrued PTO after that. Higher accruals of PTO are given the longer you work here. The Management is respectful, and the job is flexible! Everyone is extremely friendly and welcoming.

    Cons

    Maybe some updates to the office would be good, but they are actively doing that over time.

    Pros

    Smart fellow co workers that work with existing top 5 insurance broker clients in the Nation

    Cons

    Still trying to compete with others in a tough niche insurance software world, once someone buys a system they are 10 years done from being able to sell to.

    Advice to Management

    Training of how sales used to be effective, have a whole team to market the features and benefits without trip ups

    I worked at VRC Insurance Systems as a contractor

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to work with VRC as a consultant. VRC has a significant customer base and a great vision for advancing their technology in the insurance industry. The Executive team all work very closely to collaborate on new product technology and R&D. They were also available and responsive to suggestions. The staff are all hard working with a seemingly high level of autonomy. The opinions of of everyone there seemed to be taken seriously with the ability to drive change from the ground up. All of the employees were very friendly and pleasant to work with. As a consultant, I did not receive PTO or other benefits so I can't comment on that.

    Cons

    The frustration I saw was more due to the industry lag in adapting to change than that of the company. It was frustrating to have technology ready to deploy without having many companies recptive to new technology or change in general. The location is a beautiful office campus next to a lake, but getting there from L.A. on the 101 could be brutal during rush hour.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. After witnessing your company's operations firsthand, I'm certain that you wouldn't have 5 of the top 10 insurance brokers in the world as clients, if you didn't have a winning team and a successful formula.


  4. "Small company, confusing structure"

    I worked at VRC Insurance Systems full-time

    Pros

    It's a small company, the people are nice.

    Cons

    The software that is their main product is confusing and they did a bad job explaining to me how the layout worked and what all the terms meant. Also they give 0 paid time off or sick days to new employees. Also many times I was unsure what to do next after my assignment was complete. There's not a ton of communication there.

    Advice to Management

    Give sick days to new people and explain the layout better.
