    I have been working at Beecher Carlson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with

    Cons

    New owners (Brown & Brown, Inc.) are a bit old fashioned in the way they deal with employees.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get the Brown & Brown Leaders to be more aware of the obstacles that the middle management people have put in the way of getting work done. The middle managers have built up kingdoms and it is a very odd situation.

    Pros

    Great culture - work hard, play hard mentality. Employees are passionate about what they do and passionate about delivering results for clients

    Cons

    There is a vast disproportion of wealth within the company. The underlings work extremely hard, while the senior/executive management works just hard enough and the lower level employees are not compensated fairly for the work that they do.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Beecher Carlson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very talented coworkers, liberal PTO program and T and E budgets

    Cons

    There is no leadership at this company. There are no performance reviews and no clear lines of career development. There is an amazing sense of desperation since the sale to B and B. It doesn't seem like Beecher is meeting expectations, and the parent company is already making really awful changes to culture and service model.

    Advice to Management

    Start over with a talented management team

    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 Management

    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.


  9. "There are some good people here. The worst executive management I have seen in 20 years in the industry. Poor ethics."

    Pros

    Liberal time off policy. You will really appreciate your next job!

    Cons

    Weak management at the executive level which naturally permeates through the entire organization. Old boy network, cronyism and "might makes right" mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Previous reviewer said it best, lead by example. Stop turning a blind eye to poor ethics and misconduct within the executive ranks. Stop stuffing your pockets at others expense.
