    Current Employee - Associate Broker in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at AmWINS Group full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I was able to learn and hone many essential skills that I can use anywhere I go in the insurance industry, alongside a quality group of employees and staff. From the technical assistants all the way up to the brokers, a vast majority are willing to take a moment and personally answer any questions you have. It has been a great opportunity so far and I highly recommend the company to anyone seriously considering a career in insurance. Continued education is offered and encouraged, and events for the staff are always top notch.

    Cons

    Unless you really enjoy insurance, work can become a bit boring. There is also a patience factor that comes into play when waiting on correspondence needed from an agent or carrier.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None at this time

    Pros

    They have talent spread out through multpiple offices, so if you need help or guidance, you can always find a resource.
    The offices are filled with life. The people who work there including management are VERY happy employees.
    They give you the freedom to become your own boss and where you push yourself is how far you will go.
    They do their best to make the office fun and they don't micromanage, which is great for employee morale.
    I don't know how they haven't won best employer to work for as of yet.

    Cons

    There really aren't any cons on working here unless you are a producer. It can be cut throat, but that is sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! Only thing I think that should be added is more training for each department as an individual for their specific niche'.

    Pros

    The company works at creating a good atmosphere for employees overall. If you fall in with the existing culture, you will find that this is one of those companies where you can work hard and play hard without ever leaving your colleagues. Many perks and the opportunity to really establish connections with professionals in various stages of their professional career. If you make it your business to engage well, you will surely learn a lot about the industry and meet people you will want to have in your extended network. Great bonuses!

    Cons

    The company should attempt to develop greater diversity in some of the offices. Women and people of color are not well represented in leadership roles.

    Pros

    Steady and solid place to work. Corporate tries to treat employees well with different opportunities. Best way to work here is to give in and drink the kool-aide.

    Cons

    Completely Corporate America. The people training the upcoming brokers don't know insurance at all. They just have business degrees. The love of the industry is overshadowed with the "right way" of doing business on paper.

    Pros

    Company employees go out of their way to help new hires learn the skills & techniques to be successful. Management is very friendly & approachable.

    Cons

    Can be a bit overwhelming for new hires. Sometimes policies change very quickly with little or no notice. Taking PASS calls can be unpredictable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, PLEASE fix the PASS system! Too many groups listed have outdated or no information.

    Pros

    Easy work but rarely changes.

    Individual manager is unorganized and should not have a team if they can not properly manage.

    Your employees will resent you if you act like the rules do not apply to you.
