    Pros

    Good Flexibility with hours, family work culture, Fun People

    Cons

    Extra hours with no overtime compensation. Due to being a young company, they are reactive with problems as opposed to proactive, so standards are constantly changing.

    I worked at Windhaven Insurance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Alot of really good people work there. It's a shame they treat them so terribly.
    - Excel and SQL skills will improve significantly
    - Pay is decent
    - Analysts are put through multiple "hazing" nights in which they prove their worth through alcohol. Management didnt really stand a chance against us.

    Cons

    - CEO is basically the worst human known to man and has SERIOUS issues
    - Management will ridicule you every opportunity available (Mostly Jimmy).
    - Terrible benefits (401k, PTO)
    - Very strict on clocking in and out
    - 1st year annual bonus $150
    - 2nd year annual bonus $200
    - CEO will verbally assault you on a daily basis if he doesn't like you. Don't worry he's harmless though.
    - CEO will get weird if you're a pretty girl and he gets drunk (Basically every outing).

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of that Jimmy guy and the company will improve significantly.

    Pros

    Fun work environment, work hard but play hard. Very great company for those looking for job development. I've been able to work in almost every part of the organization. We've even been named best places to work two of the last three years!

    Cons

    Not very many cons, really only working in Doral. The traffic is terrible. It would be nice if the office was south of the dolphin.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Company is growing like crazy and the leadership team is a close knit of individuals that work well together.

    I worked at Windhaven Insurance full-time

    Pros

    Fast-paced atmosphere with significant potential to develop skills and acquire experience. If your job does not require interaction with the CEO, you will enjoy the numerous spirit and community events.

    Cons

    CEO and sole owner is a bully and a tyrant. Has a temper. Extremely impatient and not good at articulating what he wants, will blow up when you fail to meet his expectations. Senior managers are generally great people and very capable, but there because they will always agree with the CEO.
    You will gain tremendous experience because the company is continuously understaffed and everyone else picks up the extra work. Expectation of fairly high attrition - see employees as easily replaceable. Expectation that hourly exempt employees will work 50-60 hours minimum weekly for pay that they proudly acknowledge as being targeted slightly under average.

    I have been working at Windhaven Insurance full-time

    Pros

    Windhaven is all about growth and innovation. I have been here over 5 years and have seen the company grow from $40M in revenue to over $300M. This level of growth is extremely rare in the insurance industry and results in numerous opportunities for those who embrace innovation and change. The company changes processes and adjusts processes constantly for continous improvement and to maintain growth. Those who excel are rewarded with recognition, promotions, and quarterly bonuses. This is a fast paced, changing environment balance with a "have fun" core value. The dress code is casual - wear shorts if you want! Fun events have included eating contests, charity walks and races, tough mudders, annual bowling contest, halloween events, family days, and many more.
    If you are looking for a place for professional growth, where you are objectively measured against your peers this is it. Stars have every opportunity to shine here.
    As the company grows their are also opportunites for promotional transfers. Offices are currently in Doral, Miami, Tampa, Dallas and Austin.
    It is very rewarding to see a company successfully grow at a fast pace and the new opportunities in jobs and promotions which results for so many.

    Cons

    For some positions you must be open to change management due to the continous innovation and growth occurring.
