    So far so, well, pretty good

    Assistant Vice President (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsPeople we work with are great

    ConsLack of information from management about everything leaves you speculating about everything. "Bonuses" do not exist and there is no talk of why or when they might exist.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate more, and try stick to what you say to some degree. Quarterly conference calls with the entire company are not useful, they are a waste of time and almost demoralizing. Award those that deserve it. Not everyone is a producer in this company, but they appear to be the only ones that matter.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not a good fit for Brown and Brown model

    Senior Vice President (Current Employee)

    ProsVery talented coworkers, liberal PTO program and T and E budgets

    ConsThere is no leadership at this company. There are no performance reviews and no clear lines of career development. There is an amazing sense of desperation since the sale to B and B. It doesn't seem like Beecher is meeting expectations, and the parent company is already making really awful changes to culture and service model.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart over with a talented management team

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    There are some good people here. The worst executive management I have seen in 20 years in the industry. Poor ethics.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsLiberal time off policy. You will really appreciate your next job!

    ConsWeak management at the executive level which naturally permeates through the entire organization. Old boy network, cronyism and "might makes right" mentality.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPrevious reviewer said it best, lead by example. Stop turning a blind eye to poor ethics and misconduct within the executive ranks. Stop stuffing your pockets at others expense.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Poor leadership, and no room for advancement

    Client Relationship Manager (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsVery liberal with hours worked and time off requests

    ConsPoor management and poor leadership.
    Pay is substandard. The managers make a lot of money, but they don't sell. Yet, they push you to sell more and they are never happy, even when you kick butt in a month.
    Avoid working here if at all possible.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay the producers more. Implement profit sharing. Quit leading from the rear and lead by example. Management thru fear and intimidation is not productive.

    Worst run company I have ever seen

    Vice President (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsThe best reason to work at Beecher Carlson is that I haven't found another job yet. Most of the people in the trenches are good people and make it bearable.

    ConsExtremely weak management that are only concerned with making more money for themselves and not sharing any with employees. Worst communication I have ever experienced.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEveryone knows you are all talk with no ability.

    A fast growing company gearing for future growth and probable sale

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Denver, CO

    Good company but prepare to be stagnant...

    Assistant Account Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsTerrific co-workers, enjoyable environment and the lack of micro-management.

    ConsLack of proper compensation and poor supervisors

    Advice to Senior ManagementWatch for hardworking, strong employees who want to learn and grow in the company & properly compensate them for the job they are doing.

    The responsibility is rewarding, the lack of communication is disheartening.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe work life balance is great. I work with good people and enjoy coworker company while outside of work as well.

    ConsNo idea what the career path is. I have no clue where, when, why, or how to take the next step.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPeople are fed up with the non existent bonus structure that is referred to by management. No growth in salary is also very disappointing.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
