    I have been working at Windhaven Insurance full-time

    Pros

    Nothing worth mentioning in a serious job review.

    Cons

    - Company leadership is analytically challenged - No effort is given to developing employees - Extremely high turnover at the manager and director levels due to employee dissatisfaction - Deceiving recruiting promises - Financial instability - Tense work environment - Terribly understaffed HR department, which leaves them with zero capacity to operate. - Employees have no sense of ownership due to their negative...

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Windhaven Insurance does a good job of pitching themselves to applicants by promising a culture and career opportunity that does not exist. In reality there is no path for career growth, and most departments are set up under the expectation that employee turnover is a given. Spend resources on developing the leadership team. Most direct reports in every department are much smarter, analytically...

    It's impossible to manage people effectively here, Upper Management doesn't allow you to do what you need to do, they don't even consider your experience

    I worked at Windhaven Insurance full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people are the only benefits.

    Cons

    To begin, the salary and benefits are below average at best. Additionally, there is no way to feel proud of what you do when it's obvious the company low balls every first estimate. Supplements should never come in 4 times higher than the original estimate. This happens regardless of whether the vehicle was estimated at the field or desk level. If you ask the estimating team to explain the differences, you likely will...

    Advice to Management

    Completely overhaul the Dallas office. Establish file guidelines in order to have a consistent file quality. Establish a true training program for new employees. Focus on employee engagement and building the morale of the office. All leadership could use employee relations training. When hiring leaders, focus on the qualifications, skills and leadership capabilities of the individual.

    I worked at Windhaven Insurance full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The pay is pretty competitive.

    Cons

    After starting, a handful of managers quit with very little notice leaving several teams with no manager. This resulted in them frantically hiring people with absolutely no leadership qualities. The managers were all stressed out, and seemed almost angry a lot of the time but after learning about how they were treated by their managers, I immediately understood. All of my coworkers were very unhappy working there. ...

    I have been working at Windhaven Insurance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Dress Code VP of claims is the only person trying to improve the company

    Cons

    A basketball court is not a sign of a good corporate culture. People voted for "Best Places to Work" out of fear of backlash from management There is not a trustworthy manager in the company Pay about 10-15% below what other companies would for similar roles Horrible benefits Management openly does not care about the customer

    Advice to Management

    Replace all of the management with competent individuals.

    I worked at Windhaven Insurance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Laid back culture Windy Wednesdays They will at least give you one year to figure things out.

    Cons

    -Inconsistency- One supervisor tells you one thing when another tells you another. You do what one supervisor tells you to do and then find out another supervisor wants you to do it differently. I would say they are only looking after themselves. Most people only least at Windhaven one year and now I know why.

    Advice to Management

    Though this is a non standard company I would recommend making the process standard for all. Supervisors should not be able to tell you one way to do something and have that change from one supervisor to the next. The experience was good with Windhaven

    Pros

    Casual attire and Wendie Wednesday

    Cons

    Unacceptable place to work. Every single employee in the legal department is overworked. Some attorneys are rude and disrespectful to their legal assistants. This company does not care about customer service or ethic. Companies only focus is volume

    Advice to Management

    Be more ethical, honest and care about your employees
