    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.

    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.

    I worked at Beecher Carlson full-time

    Pros

    Culture of the company, hard work and dedicated employees that are always willing to contribute to team work.

    Cons

    Some managers do not communicate clearly but expect their direct reports to understand what is expected.

    Advice to Management

    Clear communication is very important and will overall help the company to be more successful. Make sure that the service folks are given fair bonuses as they work very hard and are dedicated to giving the best service in the business.

    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.

    Pros

    It was a nice place to work. The people were nice and you were not micromanaged at all.

    Cons

    After the Brown and Brown merger I wasn't sure where my career was going so I decided to explore other opportunities.
