    I worked at BrownGreer full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good Environment. Useful Experience if you want to start a new career. Close to home and managed a very sensitive project.

    Cons

    No possibility for advancement. Low Pay. Training is very limited and people providing it not well qualified. The company will not capitalize on the employees skills.

    Advice to Management

    Read Resumes and take advantage of your employees skills.

    I have been working at BrownGreer full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    ice cream on Fridays during the summer, generous PTO, easily accessible office locations, and free coffee.

    Cons

    No raise or promotion after 13 months with the company. Instead of requesting overtime, reviewers were required to work altered schedules which caused some employees to lose hours (granted, this period lasted less than a month, but still...).

    Advice to Management

    Push to honor and promote employees who exceed expectations. Give raises when earned. A competitive workplace is a successful workplace.

    I worked at BrownGreer (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    BrownGreer provided a causal and flexible working environment for positions that were above entry-level. PTO was generous, and they offered matching 401k contributions.

    Cons

    The list of negative aspects is extensive: long working hours, unreasonable expectations, an ineffective HR department, poor management, lack of training provided, high turnover and low job security, low pay, and a high school-esque culture. Employees were often expected to work long and weekends as well as be available by email at all hours. While the amount of PTO offered was generous, they did not encourage employees to actually take time off. The work/life balance was practically non-existent. The training department went through several revamps, and none were successful. New and transitioning employees were provided with minimal training and were expected to blindly jump right into detailed tasks. They discouraged asking questions, even when it was necessary to perform your job correctly. The analysts that managed teams often had less education and experience than the people they managed, and the results were disastrous. Both attorneys and analysts at every level were allowed to be abusive to their staff, and gossip, backstabbing, and nepotism were rampant. Everyone, even management, was paranoid that they were on the cusp of being laid off or fired. The HR department was a joke. If an employee took an issue to HR, it was known to half the firm by the end of the day. The rules were also not enforced consistently. I could go on (and on), but in general, it was a disorganized and unhealthy work environment.

    Pros

    80% of employees are very nice and easy to work with. The remaining 20% will make your life miserable.

    Cons

    Low pay. Management needs to go or trained on how to decrease employee turnover. Can't keep HR manager for more than 6 months. Would not recommend this place for employment.

    Pros

    Some of the people you get to meet in the different departments are fun to talk to and possibly break bread with after work. You can expect to have your typical big company we care about you bs, like ice cream Fridays, jeans and/or jersey Fridays, etc....... Advice, if you're willing to put yourself through this then just use them to pat your resume. Then move on to bigger and brighter pastures.

    Cons

    Where to begin, they like to hire young employees with no real world experienced so they can use you then spit you out. I worked there for over three years, saw three different directors of my department. The first two were great, spoke to them every couple of months(seemed like they cared), the third came in and spoke to him one time. He was disconnected from what was going on, just horrible. This company gives HR too much power, and one particular person in the department pretends to help then throws it back in your face. Some of the project managers shouldn't even be in their positions, not enough experience nor educated enough to be in that position. Managers are made to think they're actually going to manage, they end up having no power, just babysit and HR makes the decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a pair and when your employee asks you something be straight forward with them, don't side step the issue, don't forget to follow up and find the answer for your employee and don't pretend to not know something or out right lie. Also department heads communicate with team leads so they know what's going on, so when they get asked a question they know what to say to employees.
