    Brown & Brown of Florham Park, NJ - A TERRIBLE Place to Work

    Jul 17, 2013 -  in Florham Park, NJ

    Pros

    The ability to work remotely when needed. The opportunity to meet some wonderful people.

    Cons

    Where to begin? I started with the company in 2006 and at that time it was a great place to work, initially. It didnt take long to see the 'high school' groups that existed and the fact that some could get away with murder and waltz around bullying others. The way people were treated and disregarded in this company was horrifying. I have worked in the corporate world for a long time and never in my life I have i seen an office run the way it is. Schemers and liars are rewarded while the ones working so hard are treated like garbage. The management staff is a joke, producers come in through a revolving door. It is all about the revenue and screw the people, THAT should be the CHEETAH motto.

    Very poor management, understaffed, very low morale

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good benefits, time off allowed is good

    Cons

    The management is very poor. Staff is under-paid and given heavy workloads. There is a divisive atmosphere between producers and staff created by management encouraging each to complain about the other and then finds fault with the staff person rather than attempting to solve the issue. Turnover is high and nobody seems to understand why - or possibly they don't care.

    Worst couple of years of my working experience

    Pros

    Honestly I can't really say there was any

    Cons

    They treated their producers who brought in the revenue worse than they treated their support staff. They took 80% and gave the producer 20% and provided little to no support. They blamed the producer if the client left though the 80% they took was supposed to cover someone of quality providing good service to the client. Had the worst reputation in the insurance industry. I had someone tell me a year after I left there that they could never refer business because they hated B&B. I've never sat through so many long useless meetings in my life. If you are young and right out of college they will bring you in, work your butt off to build a good business and then you will be so tired of working there, that you want to leave and they now keep 100% of your business. Don't just read this description but ask people in the insurance business.

    Pros

    They will give you the support and tools to succeed in the insurance world. If you can sell and create connections then this is a great place.

    Cons

    Not much training when it comes to helping the newer producers in the office.

    Go nowhere fast

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The benefits package was good.

    Cons

    Technology was very behind the times (circa 1990s). Was advised to use my personal laptop for work when WFH(can you say HIPAA violation?!) The internal tech team is overworked and short-staffed, so implementations take longer than expected. Client book is small and no new business came in for a year. Many clients left due to mismanagement and unhappiness. Always in a reactive state with clients as opposed to proactive - lots of fires to put out. No unified procedures or templates; if you did find a template somewhere, there are no instructions or contacts to go to with questions, or it was outdated. Too many clients to effectively manage, and the clients you will get will have been poorly/mismanaged by prior account executives or account managers. Toxic co-workers - not a collaborative work environment; no mentoring or training by Account Executives or more senior account managers who have a 'you figure it out because I had to' mentality. You're either micromanaged by producers/account executives, or they leave you out of everything but expect you to know everything they've discussed without you. Good ole boys club. No room for growth since your clients will be leaving. Don't be fooled by the 'unlimited PTO' - you'll be too busy to use it, or it will be cancelled due to internal meetings. You'll come back from PTO to a full email in box because the back-ups you've listed on your out-of-office have done nothing for you or your clients.

    Horrible Management, Low Pay, Gossip Culture

    May 6, 2016 - Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Somewhat flex scheduling- can make up to 4 hours a week but must balance 40 hrs/week. Hard to get fired. It's a good place to get your license & some experience, but then move on to make more $ elsewhere.

    Cons

    B&B is a decentralized company with our own budget, etc., so things are strict with spending, when I really know that they are shipping off millions to Powell Brown & his joke of an executive management team in Florida. The president is OBLIVIOUS to anything going on in the office or just turns a blind eye. Time clock makes you feel like a factory worker. Sales people, especially young sales people are LAZY and don't want to cold call. Horrible pay and rare wage increases. They offer incentive bonuses that you will rarely attain, and if you do it's barely enough to make you feel good about your 'hard work'. No praise for CSR's and all of the work they do for the sales people. The word 'teammate' and 'fellow cheetahs' will get annoying. No training- it's an ask and learn company. Insurance is an old mans business and you can really see that here, all of the older producers sit around gulping up their nice salaries- golfing & going on vacations. We say that everyone who loves B&B 'drank the Koolaid'. AVOID THIS COMPANY..

    Pros

    Unlimited financial upside Work hard, play hard culture Super family friendly Total flexibility Pretty flat organization, little to no politicking Sales team likes and trusts each other Bad behavior or bullying by producers with huge books isn't tolerated Debate is encouraged, not suppressed Tons of resources provided Beautiful office space

    Cons

    The workload can be mental at times (Q4 makes my hair fall out) You're never really "off" work, but that's more a function of my particular role CRM (MS Dynamics) is clunky Excessive meetings
