Great company! Work-life balance and overall a great group of colleagues.....

Account Analyst & Client Services (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I worked at Beecher Carlson full-time

ProsCulture of the company, hard work and dedicated employees that are always willing to contribute to team work.

ConsSome managers do not communicate clearly but expect their direct reports to understand what is expected.

Advice to Senior ManagementClear communication is very important and will overall help the company to be more successful. Make sure that the service folks are given fair bonuses as they work very hard and are dedicated to giving the best service in the business.

So far so, well, pretty good

Assistant Vice President (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Beecher Carlson full-time for more than 3 years

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

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

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Beecher Carlson

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.

Client Services Administrator

Client Services (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I worked at Beecher Carlson full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe culture of the company was great; everybody works well together and are always willing to help each other to achieve the same goal "success". One of the best places I've worked with the exception on the communication.

ConsSome managers need to learn how to communicate better so there is no question in their expectations.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to be fair to all employees regarding flexibility, its obvious that some managers allow for more flexibility to people that are married and/or those that have children as they seem to be allowed more flexibility with little or no repercussion.

Beware!

ProsBeecher has attracted some of the best people in the industry - great coworkers. Well known, high profile clients - lots of client interaction.

ConsStrategy changes every 30-60-90 days, success feels like a moving target. Not much focus on training or development. They talk big but don't deliver when it comes to how they treat employees.
