    Best in class brokerage. Work life balance with minimal performance expectations. Plenty of resources. Top talent at top but weak talent in support roles.

    Cons

    Sales focus that has turned attention from employee growth and development to production. Comp structure focused on production and incentives not well aligned

    Advice to Management

    Add staff

    Pros

    Work life balance great. Flexible. Wonderful benefits. Coworkers very friendly and accommodating. Family atmosphere.

    None. I do not see any as of yet. It's a 9-5 job but you take emotions home with you

    Pros

    The company is great to work for, socially responsible.

    Cons

    Individual departments vary. So much potential but internal silos and fee arrangements sometimes prevent the right clients from getting the right service. Spreading the NYC staff out regionally would help.

    Advice to Management

    The ancillary services targeted to a client should be determined more centrally. Otherwise the client with squeaky broker gets disproportionate service and the client who needs specialist solutions is not even aware.

    Pros

    Get the opportunity to work with very smart people Great benefits Room for growth

    Cons

    Pay is less than our competitors. I had a lot of colleagues leave for other brokers or carriers for singificant higher pay. Overworked, management does not stick with company restructures and initiatives. Too many changes.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate staff fairly and not just when they give in their resignation.

    Pros

    The people are great. It's a very collaborative atmosphere. There is a lot of opportunity and mobility up and laterally is achievable.

    Cons

    Senior management has no clue what is going on. That, or they don't care about the colleagues. They need to start listening to colleagues who tell them the truth that they don't want to hear.

    Advice to Management

    Another review put it well, stop living for quarterly results. The company is going to start going down the tubes when the good people that make it great continue to leave.
