    I have been working at Brown & Brown Insurance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Since coming joining the Brown & Brown team, I've been pushed out of my 'comfort zone' which has helped me further my professional development. Additionally, I am supported by a number of teammates where we all work together to succeed as a team!

    Cons

    Depends on whether you don't like working with a team on accomplishing goals or if you only do the bare minimum. No company is perfect, but Brown & Brown has given me the tools and backing I need to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Onward and upward!

    I worked at Brown & Brown Insurance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good on the job training, opportunity to meet many people in the career field, socials / happy hours

    Cons

    Only care about you if you're in the sales program. Clear social perks and salary perks for those in the broker program.

    Advice to Management

    There shouldn't be a pay difference between analyst's and PITs starting salaries because they do the exact same thing.

    Pros

    Some growth opportunity, ok benefits.

    Cons

    Technology is scarce and not widely discussed. Flexible scheduling or remote work not allowed. Very outdated rules and processes. Very poor management in certain departments that drive poor results.

    Advice to Management

    Evolve with technology, employee development, and address the issues internally. There are many good managers, but many poor managers that are leading in the wrong direction. Treat their poor performance like any other employee and stop making excuses.

    I worked at Brown & Brown Insurance full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great teammates to work with.

    Cons

    Was a great company to work for years ago. Ever since the new CEO and CFO stepped in its no longer a Hyatt company and all they care about is growth and money. Too much corporate greed and do not care about their teammates even though they say your health and family comes first. IT department is a joke that continues to lose quality teammates and no involvement from CIO until a regional or upper management goes directly to him. As the saying goes too many chiefs not enough Indians.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the teammates within the company rather than looking for new talent. Its like the saying goes you don't know what you have until you lose it.

    I worked at Brown & Brown Insurance full-time

    Pros

    I had friendly co-workers for the most part.

    Cons

    Low pay and over worked. They don't value hard work. You can put in 40 hours or 90 hours - no one will notice the difference. They like status quo. Don't rock the boat. Much of the staff is under-qualified to do the work they were doing in the office I was in, and there were E&O issues all over the place waiting to happen. I personally saw 3 "managed" in the last 3 months. Women are treated poorly.

    Advice to Management

    Try telling the truth to your employees. You talk about open communication, but you hide behind lies and deception.
