Excellent opportunity to learn with continuously challenging environment
Chief Financial Officer (Current Employee) – Duval County, FL – July 4, 2018
I was deputed from the parent company in India when it acquired HCI Group, I was posted as the Chief Financial Officer and everyday was a different challenge. Most of people were very cooperative and supportive. A typical day use to begin as early as 8 am on some days and then end at around 5 pm. It used to be filled with routine tasks along with one of external meetings and some regular internal discussions. The company was a promoter led company and hence was very nascent in its maturity as far as systems and processes were concerned. But the endeavor was to get things in order and I received good support in all the change initiatives that I tried to implement. Culture was very welcoming, but since the company ownership and management had changed the most difficult part was to convince employees to be comfortable as far as their job security was concerned. Interacting with several external agencies like Banks, Auditors, Consultants, Insurance brokers and learning from them newer practices was most enjoyable part.
Freedom to take decisions and supportive environment
Lack of Systems and Processes
