Not as advertised
Product Support Analyst (Former Employee), East Lansing, MIJanuary 6, 2014
Pros: independent work environment
Cons: callcenter mentality, little guidance, cutthroat business
This company is not what they advertise. They will tell you the job is about the customers, which is true, but they will also tell you this is not a call center. This could not be less true. You will be expected to be on the phone all day. This is fine if you are expecting a call center, but when they advertise that this is not their focus it is deceiving. – more... There is little room for improvement, you will work short handed frequently, and you will get the short straw as the new employee. Think you're part of a team? You're part of a group of cutthroat individuals that work in the same proximity, all out for themselves with very little management. Managers are afraid to get their hands dirty, which means employees are on their own. You don't need a babysitter, but having someone sit back and quietly observe without intervention takes it's toll. – less

Growing Pains, But Generally On Course
Senior Technical Writer (Former Employee), East Lansing, MINovember 6, 2013
Company (1500 or so FTE) has grown a great deal through acquisitions over the past decade, and that has meant the expected management right-sizing and hiccups from culture dissimilarities. Is held by a private equity investment firm that will be itching for its payday before long. A great acquisition candidate itself, as it is among the top dogs in – more... its niches (insurance agency management and producer compliance platforms, etc.). Currently extremely understaffed for its big-league revenue goals, but this will likely change once it is gobbled up by a bigger fish that is either in or has ties to the Fortune 500. – less

Stepping Stone
Support Analyst II (Former Employee), Conyers, GASeptember 27, 2013
Pros: friday lunch, co-workers are great
Cons: computer tracks your day and tells you when to do what when, corporate dictatorship, not enough people to support customers
Taking escalated customer issues. You are tied to a desk all day tacking chats, calls, and emails. If you need a break you have to set computer to break and every sec is timed. Everything is measured and timed. You can't work on issues without a backlog piling up waiting for you. The Managers are puppets being told by corporate what to do. Corporate – more... does what ever is best for their bottom line, meaning they tend to have several rounds of reduction in force each year so beware. This place is a steeping stone. If you dare to enter, learn what you can learn and move on to bigger and better. Its a great place for interns to start out and get their feet wet. – less

a stopping point
system admin (Current Employee), bothell, waSeptember 25, 2013
Pros: some departments enjoy flexible scheduling.
Cons: everything else
Overloaded on higher management with no concern for the "little guy". Turnover is about as bad as a mcdonalds with no effort to retain or reward talent. Company has the feel that it has no direction, or every direction. Pay rates are 20% below market average in a culture where management will actually tell you "you are lucky you have a job". You can – more... be laid off at any time as it occurs frequently. This is where hope goes to die. – less

Frequent shifts in direction and poor management make this place a career death trap.
Rather not say (Current Employee), Conyers, GAApril 2, 2013
Pros: depends on location, but from a corporate viewpoint the benefits are decent and the base salary is ok.
Cons: too many to list
Vertafore consists of a number of products designed to meet the needs of the insurance industry. Most of these products were acquired by buying up smaller close-knit companies that meet the needs various niche insurance markets.

Over the last few years the company has had considerable trouble identifying how to consolidate these assets. As a result, – more... they have made a number of missteps. Each misstep or change in direction they make results in job losses at the various locations. Typically, these are good skilled people that are no longer needed in their current roles and are simply cast aside. This leaves the remaining employees feeling uneasy about their futures.

All decisions and processes are driven out of Bothell, WA. While working in Bothell is no guarantee of job security, it appears that working at any other location is more likely to result in your eventual elimination during the next priority shift.

Weak attempts have been made to manage employee satisfaction concerns, but there has been little cause to celebrate. Additionally, the review process is arbitrary and seems to be geared around avoiding things like merit increases or bonus payouts wherever possible. A glowing mid-year review where merit increases are not discussed is likely to be followed up with a less glowing or negative year-end review when it comes time to discuss money. Specifics are not given for low marks leaving the employee to remain confused about the process and how to improve. – less

Easy job most of the time
Production Programmer II (Current Employee), Suisun City, CAJuly 26, 2012
Pros: free monthly lunches/breakfast, two 10 minute breaks
Throughout the 6 and half years I've worked with this company, new areas of opportunies opened which led me to take on additional projects and responsibilities that expanded my knowledge and skills.

I like working at Vertafore because the job is easy most of the time and my commute is only 10 minutes. The people and managers are also friendly.
