    I have been working at Homeowners Choice Property & Casualty Insurance Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    HCI is one of the best companies I have ever worked for! They have great salaries, 100% (employee only portion) paid health insurance, flexible hours (some people in our department come in as early as 6 and leave by 3), they don't micro manage, during the month end process we never have to work any overtime or weekends. Best part is we get annual bonuses along with profit sharing. Profit sharing is paid out to every single employee! The CEO and President is an incredible leader who cares about his employees and makes the office environment fun with constant parties, prizes that include tickets to our suite at Amalie Arena, etc.

    Cons

    Only thing I would like to see improved upon is the ability of working from home. Many companies are going in that direction and allowing their employees to work from home, having this option would retain more employees as an added perk.
    Also, the paid holidays could be better as most companies have an average of 10 paid holidays compared to 7 at HCI.

    Advice to Management

    Great company to work for, with a few added benefits it would definitely be one of, if not thee best company to work for in the Tampa Bay!

    I worked at Homeowners Choice Property & Casualty Insurance Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A few of the supervisors were nice, and actually cared about their employees. Pay was fair; however, the case loads were a bit high.

    Cons

    The constant hiring and firing of temps was frustrating. Too much red tape and BS to wade through to get anything approved or completed. Disconnected and aloof senior management. Constant shuffling of teams was annoying.

    Also, don't get sick. They fired me the moment my FMLA ran out after being diagnosed with cancer.

    Advice to Management

    Don't fire people with illnesses as soon as the FMLA runs out. They will eventually get better.

    I have been working at Homeowners Choice Property & Casualty Insurance Company full-time

    Pros

    I really enjoy working for Homeowners Choice. It's a great company with a great group of people. They care not only about their clients, but also about their employees and the surrounding communities all over Tampa as well.

    Cons

    It's hard to list any cons. I actually enjoy getting up and coming in to work, which is something I haven't always been able to say about previous employers. There are always going to be good days and bad days, we're human after all, but I would say at Homeowners Choice the good by far outweighs the negative.

    I worked at Homeowners Choice Property & Casualty Insurance Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The usual benefits such as PTO, 401K, Health and Life.

    Cons

    The call center is micromanaged with unrealistic expectations. Management needs to take come managerial courses to learn how to be a leader. This way subordinates are not constantly being degraded and instead are lifted to do their best. This is why there is a high turnover of employees were worked hard to provide excellent service to the customers.

    I worked at Homeowners Choice Property & Casualty Insurance Company full-time

    Pros

    This company values each employee as an individual, benefits package, and makes it a point to involve themselves with the outside community and build a community/culture within their own walls.

    Cons

    My life changed dramatically during my time with this company and I wish there were more flexible hours/schedule for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep your heart and mind curious for ways to better your departments and company as a whole, you are doing great!

    I have been working at Homeowners Choice Property & Casualty Insurance Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is the best job I have ever had! Management encourages every employee to get involved in other areas of the finance department that they are interested in, promotions are given very quickly. Average length of an employee there is at least 5 years, which speaks volume! 100% paid employer benefits!!!!! Yes, ALL BENEFITS (medical, vision, dental, STD, LTD, etc.)! Everybody gets along and is incredibly helpful. I wouldn't look further, get your foot in the door, it is THE BEST PLACE TO WORK FOR IN THE TAMPA BAY AREA PERIOD!!!!! Best part is they don't believe in working late! Each employee works 40 hours a week (45 max, which is rare!) EVEN DURING MONTH END! Nobody stays late!!!!! If employees start getting overwhelmed, they hire more people to alleviate the job load from overwhelmed employees. The CEO is an incredibly smart man who always delivers on every promise he makes. He is very liked throughout the entire organization.

    Cons

    PTO Benefits! Competitors offer better PTO Benefits that include not just PTO accrual, but also sick and personal days. Also, you only offer 6 paid holidays, not the industry average (which is 9 to 12). Other than that, can't complain about anything else!

    Advice to Management

    Improve the PTO & Holiday bank and there won't be a competition in town! LOVE THIS PLACE!

    Pros

    Inviting atmosphere. Thorough training. Great management. People there are extremely supportive and have kept in touch even after I left.

    Cons

    Can't think of any, I had a great experience. I can't speak to full time positions, as I was an intern, but they were a pleasure to work for.
