  1. Small Office, with none of the pros

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities

    I have been working at Brownlie & Braden, LLC

    Pros

    Small office, Decent base salary, nice facilities

    Cons

    Pay is not commensurate with work done, no bonus structure, no such thing as positive reinforcement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give feedback to employees when they do good work. Don't be afraid to either open up the pocketbook or change the expectation of a "typical" workweek.

    I worked at Brownlie & Braden, LLC

    Pros

    Promise of huge pay potential, some people are good to work with, good client base if you get to actually meet them

    Cons

    High turnover, more than 100% per year for the past 6 years
    No upside for promotion or growth
    Partners are rude, demeaning to staff
    Employees are constantly dissatisfied and leave when there is opportunity
    Only 1 employee over 5 years with company and 2 with more than 3 years.
    Claim to work with high end families, but in reality, they just sell big insurance policies. Owners are insurance guys through and through and act like cheap used car salesmen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pretending you aren't insurance guys and start treating your employees as valuable to you. Stop yelling at everyone. Get yourself out of debt and start working on retaining employees. Your website is a merry go round of people desparate enough for a job that they come there until they find something better.

    I worked at Brownlie & Braden, LLC

    Pros

    Good benefits (at least there was)
    Nice offices but again, it's a facade
    Parking is free and across the street
    Good location

    Cons

    Leadership is nonexistent
    Partners are glorified insurance salesman
    Lie to interviewees about turnover, opportunity and culture
    Cash flow issues mean no bonuses even though promises are made
    Routinely expect 55 - 65 hours per week, even for admin
    Yell at people, treat everyone with disrespect
    NO career opportunities
    Huge level of turnover
    No communication with any employees
    Nothing is ever their fault

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be who you are; you sell insurance, and without it the company goes under
    Stop claiming to be objective when you're selling insurance to 85 year old widows
    Stop treating everyone like crap; stop yelling at people; try treating people with respect
    Stop lying to potential employees about turnover, bonuses, opportunity, etc
    Focus on running a good business and lose the facade; the business is not profitable, not successful, and nobody wants to work there after two months
    Take some responsibility and stop playing the role; it's sickening to watch
