    I worked at Beecher Carlson full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clear 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.

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

    Pros

    People we work with are great

    Cons

    Lack 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 ManagementAdvice

    Communicate 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.

    I have been working at Beecher Carlson

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Beecher Carlson full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Find a position on the brokering / underwriting side of the business; this group is seen as the revenue-generating part of the business and treated as more valuable than other areas. Worked with some great employees.

    Cons

    Working as part of the back office or as a third-party administrator is not valued. Upper management did not seem to trust each other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Balance the front sell (brokering) to the on-going client relationships (third party administration).

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need 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.
