VirtualEmployee.com goes above and beyond other virtual assistant companies in that they set you up with a full-time dedicated remote employee, at a fraction of what one would cost locally.

virtualemployee.com review

You can specify your requirements in advance and VirtualEmployee.com will send you the resumes of qualified candidates so you can screen them or even interview them yourself. This feature alone sets VirtualEmployee apart from its competition.

virtual employee reviewThe cost of your Virtual Employee will vary based on their level of experience and skills. A legal professional or web developer will command a higher salary than general administrative support. The overall price range for VirtualEmployee.com’s service is $1095 – $1995 a month.

And that is a key point to make as well – even though your remote worker will be working only for you, he or she is technically an employee of VirtualEmployee.com, not your company. That means they handle all the tax filing, payroll processing, and labor law management so you don’t have to. As you can see, it is a very valuable service and can be useful for any work that does not require a physical presence.

VirtualEmployee.com Review


Since starting in 2007, VirtualEmployee.com has grown to a large team that now serves over 100 companies around the world. Their founding principle of “same quality but significantly lower cost” seems to have translated into a successful business model.

Because they have to source an employee specifically for you, VirtualEmployee.com service can take a couple weeks to get started. After that however, there is no long term commitment or contract to sign. I was surprised by this, especially because rival VirtualHires.com requires a 4-month commitment. Of course, VirtualEmployee.com wants to impress you with their professionalism and results to maintain a lasting relationship.

VirtualEmployee.com also has half-time options and discounts for hiring multiple workers. You can choose the office hours of your virtual employee to meet your needs.

    The team at Virtual Employee have, and continue to be, very flexible to work with. This is great for a growing business where I can add resource at very short notice and adjust priorities as opportunities arrise. I recommend their services.

    We have used Virtual Employee for over 2 years, to provide software development support. The work carried out by our development team is to an extremely high standard: not jut in terms of coding, but also in terms of problem solving and innovation. Their commitment and work ethic can also not be faulted. They are a key, and highly valued, part of our business.
    The service provided by the wider Virtual Employee organisation is also first-rate. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

    Virtual Employee has served my needs for over 4 years, and I currently have four fantastic members through the company. It’s hard to imagine living without VE!

    I visited VE’s offices in January 2016 and received an extremely warm welcome. I was pleased to receive a lot of attention from management and to spend some quality time with my team. The office space provided to the team members is a constant work-in-progress as the company grows, but the conditions have improved dramatically since I hired my first team member.

    The cost is as low as possible for the service being provided (if you spend less than this, you won’t get a high level of quality — trust me).

    You won’t regret giving VE a try!

    I have used VirtualEmplyoee for the past 6 months to complete a large special project of updating spreadsheet information for our members as well as for the day to day management of leads. All in all, both the assistants assigned to me did a very good job. I am very happy with the work product and would recommend them for this type of work. In addition, they were both very friendly, easy to work with and took instructions well.

    Mrinal has proven to be an excellent member of the RCM team, and has willingly contributed above and beyond the requirements we set. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to other development teams.

    Virtual Employee was a big part of our sales process and will continue to be for years to come. The staff was easy to communicate with and understood what needed to be done with little training. I would trust them with many tasks and will continue to use them.

    We used a virtual assistant employee to begin construction for a new enterprise software. The virtual employee team was very prompt and responsive in all of their communication and it was clear that our programmer had a great deal of experience. Overall we had a positive experience with Virtual Employee.

    VE was fantastic to work with. Very responsive, top quality illustration work. My resource required very little input and seemed to understand my requests very well, despite the geographic and cultural distance. Very satisfied with the outcome, and I’ll use them again when I have another project.

    I have used Virtual Employee for multiple projects over several years. I have worked closely with their dot net team and have been very satisfied with the quality of work, courtesy of service and value for the project development. They are very knowledgeable in taking my ideas (I am not a coder) and following through on the technical solutions to make it happen. I would recommend VE.

    The value provided by virtual employee in our company has been enormous. We are a e-health company and we work for projects, so being able to hire qualified employees for specific tasks and specific periods of time has a great value for us. When you hire an employee, VE gives lots of associated services of great value also. The possibility of scaling up and down depending on comnpany needs also makes them the besto choice for start-ups and small buisnesses or divisions that need to show results and validate models before larger investments. They help being lean!

    We have found Virtual Employee to be an excellent partner for our visual animation needs. We have used them on a project that was perfectly delivered. The animation was exactly what we wanted. They also managed to get us a native English speaker to to the voice over. We liked the professionalism and the availability of the team. The price was very competitive and we will continue to use Virtual Employee for specific technical projects. I highly recommend Virtual Employee!

    We hired VE to help us developing part of one of our asp net projects. Overall our experience with virtual employee was very good. The only issue we had the solved by replacing one of the workers and also they gave us some free days. We’d recommend them. Very professional and the staff was nice aND helpful.

    Virtual Employee was the right answer to our question about finding the right programming help at a fair price. Our contact with the VE Managers was always professional, and our day to day programmer was always working to stay ahead of our considerable plans. If the need arises again, VE we’ll be our first call.

    For multiple film production projects, I have hired Virtual Employee to assist me in completing projects. After successfully filming a live-action scene for me, I returned to this team for a film editing project. In addition, they effectively upgraded my basic storyboards into something that I could present professionally. I have been very satisfied with all their results with storyboarding, filming, and film editing. This is a team that is fully experienced with film projects from start to finish. They understand my professional standards and take their own initiative to meet or exceed my expectations. I have recommended their services to other film producers.

    I have worked with at least 4 other similar companies in India for film projects. The results from Virtual Employee have been levels above the results from the other companies I had worked with before. I have had no hesitation returning to Virtual Employee for other tasks I needed completed.

    Their communication on projects has been seamless and I would fully recommend their team for projects. I plan to continue working with their team. It’s been a real pleasure working on projects together.

    I was looking for a virtual employee for my e-commerce website. I checked so many company profiles but finally I found an Indian outsourcing company. Really they helped me, very talented, professional, dedicated guys. I save approx 23% cost after outsoucing me design & SEO services to Virtual Employee India. I would like to recommend this company. Also will try to outsource something in future too.

    Great Job Done!! and Good Luck team.

    We have found Virtual Employee to be an excellent partner in extending our existing software team. We have used them on many technical projects, being able to expand and contract the teams whenever required. Our UK developers work directly with the virtual employees. The mix seems to work really well, as the UK employees maintain the understanding of client/business requirements, and overall we are able to deliver more for our budget and within less time with the virtual employees.

    We have worked with Virtual Employee for the last 18 months. We initially started with a single software developer to assist us with a project we were developing (we are software development company ourselves). Due to that being very successful we hired a second developer to help with another project. The two developers worked very well and were an absolute pleasure to deal with. We then had a much larger project to deal with and since working with VE had been so successful we decided to increase our VE team size to 7. This included a combination of software developers, a web designer, and a tester. The project had a very complex user interface that had to look great and work seamlessly. The end result was perfect. The team worked exceptionally well acting as an extension to our software development team in Australia.
    If you are looking to outsource some of your software development I would highly recommend Virtual Employee, they are great to deal with.

    Excellent service from Virtual Employee. They did some very basic work for me then on my iOS App. Since that point I have started using them more and more. They recently completed adding an SDK to my Android App and they delivered. We had some communication difficulties at the beginning simply put down to location/geography and accent/cultural ways of chatting but they quickly got ironed out and now we have a clear understanding or each other and now we communicate in a much clearer way.

    I find their pricing, level of support and interaction as standard or what you would expect and I am happy with this so far. It takes a little more effort on my part to project manage outsourced developers however Virtual Employee make it easy and simple for me to do that. The appointed project/task lead takes ownership of your requirement and quickly takes action in trying to understand and execute on what is at hand. They are available to discuss current or future tasks with you and respond very promptly.

    I have found it is good to be available online via Skype or some other chat service when they are implementing any task so that you can help with any issues they may encounter or answer any questions they may have.

    I know that this type of outsourcing may not be for anyone. However so far Virtual Employee is working out very well for me. My recommendation is if you are considering using them, start with a small task and develop on from there. I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the quality of their work.

    VE is the best hands down! At first I was uncertain about using an outsource company for my project not sure if they would take my project as a real priority. Using VE was the best decision I made. They put a lot into making sure I received the quality I needed for my project to stand out above the rest. They approached every situation I requested with top concern and met every deadline as promised. I am a loyal client because of the professional way they have treated my project with the best results money can buy. I totally love VE!

    VirtualEmployee is incredible. They have done in days what took other developers weeks and months to do. I have spent 3 years trying to complete my website going from developer to developer with no one being able to complete it correctly. With VirtualEmployee I had a dedicated employee working on my project and giving me feedback. I always knew what was going on and received daily reports on the progress. Their work quality is excellent, and the cost is only a fraction of what other developers have charged who couldn´t get the job done. I´m only sorry I didn´t know about them in the beginning. If you use VirtualEmployee you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend them to anyone who has a webproject to complete.

    We hired a software developer through Virtual Employee and found the experience to be a much more positive one than other offshore approaches we have tried previously. When compared with traditional offshore technical services, the arrangement is much more like a having your own branch office.

    We were able to interview and select an employee of our choice, who we worked with remotely in the same way that we would a more local staff member. Virtual employee provided good advance notice of any holidays or staff holidays, and billing and payment for services was also easily managed.

    As part of our evaluation process we also visited their office in NOIDA, near Delhi and found the local team to be professional, courteous and helpful. Only issues we experienced were occasionally poor internet connectivity from India to New Zealand where we are based, although this is not really a VirtualEmployee problem.

    We have worked with virtual employee for one year and a half. We wanted to outsource some of our .net software development and Virtual employee has reached our goals.
    At the beginning we worried about outsourcing such development tasks taking into account that software is not our core bussiness.
    Fortunately, the team of virtual employee helped us with several technical problems we found during the project.
    We also consider very positive their flexibility to follow our procedures and security methods.
    I would highly recommend Virtual Employee as a reliable outsourcing partner.

    We have been working with VirtualEmployee for almost two years now. We currently have 30 employees with them for various tasks. Every email and phone call is answered promptly and professionally.

    Over time we have only had to replace a few employees due to work performance, however that is to be expected as there will always be a % of people that do not work out. VE makes the replacement process very easy and we had no downtime due to it.

    Communication with the staff is available 24/7 and we receive feedback instantly (for instance if our site goes down). They truly seem to care about our company and any task we ask of them.

    We will continue to use VirtualEmployee for future projects as their management and quality of work is the best we’ve ever seen.

    We have worked with virtual employee for over a year for iphone app development. We primarily outsource over at odesk but due to the IP sensitivity of this project we did not want to go down the odesk route on this particular occasion. We considered several firms in India, buy chose virtual employee because we felt most assured with the data protection protocols they have in place.

    The main advantage of virtual employee for us was the cost saving. We were at one point considering developing locally due to our data concerns. But by outsourcing we made a significant cost saving, which enabled us to keep within our budget.

    Overall our experience with virtual employee was very good. The only issue we had was that our resource would often request leaves without providing adequate notice. Although the issue did improve after bringing it up with their HR, it was nevertheless frustrating. Hence this is why I am giving VE a 4 and not a 5 star overall rating. Aside from this however, all in all we are happy with the end result of our app. I will therefore certainly keep virtual employee in mind for future work.

    Hi. We hired a game developer through VirtualEmployee.com about a year ago. We were looking for someone with very niche skills and this ruled out some of the outsourcing companies. Virtual employee however was confident they could provide us with the resource we required because they said they would recruit an individual that specifically had the skills we desired.

    We interviewed a few candidates and felt one in particular seemed like a good fit. From start to finish it did take a few weeks before Rajesh actually came on board with our team. At the time this was a little frustrating because we needed someone immediately.

    A year down the line, I can however confidently say that it certainly was worth the wait. Rajesh has been a fantastic addition to our team. He comes up with innovative ideas, is very capable and has a great overall attitude. He makes our life easier, in terms of both winning contracts and completing them. Working with the VE management has also never been a problem, they are always professional and prompt whenever we have required any sort of assistance.

    Prior to virtual employee, we had also worked with other outsourcing companies/freelancers in both India and China for various different projects. The results were mixed. Some of the resources were clearly unqualified and whilst others were talented we found the unprofessionalism and general attitude a real headache and drain. With one particular company the experience was so bad that the time we lost outweighed the cost savings we were making. Hence, this is why I recommend VE. A) Firstly, the quality of Rajesh’s work is excellent. B) VE’s way of working, their setup, model, management makes outsourcing very easy. C) Thus far we have had no problems and I can’t really ask for more than that.

    VE’s rates are a little higher than other companies, (and we had to pay 2 months upfront to secure Rajesh which at the time I was not so thrilled about) but I am happy to pay a little more with them because the frustrations and inefficiencies we experienced with other outsourcing companies and freelancers we have not encountered with VE. We pay a little more but we feel we are getting a lot more in return, so I would even go so far as to say our greatest cost saving throughout all our outsourcing experiences has actually been with VE.

    Outsourcing is all about finding an individual, company and method that works best for your company and your individual needs. But if you need a dedicated overseas resource, a real quality and seamless service and an outsourcing company that understands the expectations of a British company then I would certainly recommend you consider VE.

    Best of luck!

    We have hired two flash animators through Virtual Employee, with great
    results! The sales staff is available 24/7 and they were able to find
    us two animators very quickly that have done excellent work for us.

    recommend contacting Virtual Employee if you are needing full time
    technical employees.
