    Unreasonable job objectives that unfairly grow and change constantly. Management is terrible, more like slave drivers. Does not care about their employees. Worse job I've ever had

    There are some old technology that could be discarded.
    Employee morale is down to the ground.
    The huddle time could be limited. it is a huddle with no resolution just criticism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because our experience was bad with the company, We would hope that from a point forward you respect your employees for their hard work. Coach them not kick their butts. Limit the huddle for employees recognition not criticism.

    I have been working at Windhaven Insurance full-time

    Pros

    * able to negotiate for decent salary,
    * chance to get promotions based on performance,
    * decent benefits packages,
    * bright minds surround you

    Cons

    Like an abusive spouse, this company will gaslight you, take up all your time for little benefit and demand the impossible.

    The senior management is most focused on petty in-fighting, finding who to blame, short time-to-market (at the cost of quality) and treating its staff like laborers.

    The turn-over rate is through the roof. No less than 2/3-rds (though possibly 3/4-ths) of the employees have been there for LESS THAN A YEAR. They churn through new people until they are either unable to give more or blamed for something that was poorly planned (and therefore poorly executed).

    They talk a lot about company values, but they are more like company platitudes.

    Benefits are good, but you are ineligible for them for the first 90 days.

    The time-off policies are draconian and restrictive at best.

    Deadlines will be set with no regard to the actual difficulty of the task.

    And then, when you have worked every day of the week for more than a month to meet the deadlines, your manager's manager will mock you for not being in a steady state.

    A lot of importance is placed on positions of reference and data that will back-up your claims. However, they will actively sabotage your efforts to put a process into place that could assist in you building these positions. A small of amount of data is collected until some portion of the executives' plans are supported and then that decision is in stone. Even when new issues come to light, you'll just just have to get it done because "that was the plan".

    The senior management ridicules and belittles their subordinates lightly. They also will expect you to be available for work through the night, but will not be available themselves. They will blow you off if they don't understand what you are saying within the first 2 minutes.

    Sign up at your own risk!

    I have been working at Windhaven Insurance full-time

    Pros

    Work with some high caliber employees.

    Cons

    Leadership relies exclusively on the "numbers". Lots of unmeasured items that also have an impact on the quality of work goes unnoticed. Employees are forced to lower their quality of work in order to meet demands. Employees who try and dot the i's and cross the t's end up working way over there scheduled hours. Due to Personnel having to work lots of hours in order to get things done the right way the company has "rewarded" them by turning them over to salary ("this is actually a benefit for you"). Lots of changes without testing things out first (just get it done attitude).
