    I worked at BrownGreer full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Can listen to music while you work. Casual dress code. Perfect for introverts!

    Cons

    Training could have been better.

    Advice to Management

    Wish they could hire permanent employees instead of just contractors.

    I worked at BrownGreer full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    At the claims reviewer level, BrownGreer provides a solid opportunity for recent grads and JDs to get their foot in the door to a company that works on relevant/newsworthy projects like the BP oil spill and NFL concussion settlements. When I was later promoted to an analyst position, they gave me the opportunity to work across teams and gain valuable management and analytical/reporting experience. The benefits were solid,...

    Cons

    BrownGreer is a project-based company and business needs change year to year. So, reductions in force were inevitable during my time there (although mass hirings were, too). I found that the best way to ensure job security was to try and excel at my current role while making contacts on other teams to provide me with additional work when my primary projects ran low.

    I worked at BrownGreer full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    There are some very intelligent people.

    Cons

    Worst working experiencing of my life. Will never forget the horrific treatment from upper management. There is zero respect for your personal life or time away from work.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up to Orran and stop letting him treat his colleagues like garbage because he is in a bad mood. Respect time away from work and foster a better work/life balance.

    I worked at BrownGreer full-time

    Pros

    PTO, break rooms, flexible schedule, business casual dress code.

    Cons

    Massive lay offs, favoritism, looks favored over skills

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the people doing the actual work vs all the "managers"

    Pros

    PTO, no other pros about working here.

    Cons

    Seasoned employees are paid the same or less than temporary agency new hires to do the same tasks. This firm will only acknowledge you if you are part of one of the cliques, part of a favored family unit that works there, or are of a specific demographic that they favor. If you are a friend or family member of one of the chosen few, you may receive opportunities not offered to others. If not, don't waste your time...

      I worked at BrownGreer full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      I was one of the lucky employees who had more responsibilities at the firm (I also had a stellar supervisor for which this was undoubtedly the reason) that definitely helped my professional growth, so opportunities exist; however, I hit the wall quickly and became bored, unhappy with the job.

      Cons

      I was an attorney at the firm who was classified as a legally-trained claims reviewer. However, I did counsel-level work while being paid as a legally-trained claims reviewer (I was told so by counsel and often worked with counsel, so I had an idea of their responsibilities and workloads). I only received a raise because I questioned the amount of pay I was receiving as it related to my work. It would’ve helped me tremendously,...

      Advice to Management

      The model of running the firm that I experienced was completely unsustainable. It seems little has changed. It is impossible to provide advice to management if no one is willing to change it.
