    I have been working at Beecher Carlson full-time

    Pros

    Nice, intelligent, hard working people
    Great benefits
    Interesting dynamic work
    Unstructured* (depends if that works for your personality/work style)

    Cons

    Some departments are run extremely thin with no backups
    Unlimited vacation but working on vacation is required
    No role clarity/path for promotion
    Extremely long hours
    Unorganized/no formalized process implemented
    No work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people so that back ups are possible
    COL pay increases would build loyalty
    Management is still heavily involved in accounts instead of managing and developing employees
    Expenses budget is unrealistically low

    You are told you are required to work over 40 hours a week and weekends, hired to do an account manager position but turned out to be the managers administrative assistant working on excel spreadsheets all day.... 17 years of insurance experience used to be a personal assistant. Manager gave work that they did not want to do...

    Clean NY office, upper management is easy to work with
