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

    Pros

    The day to day is relatively fascinating. I enjoy the people with whom I work, and the firm is flexible and promotes a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    The length of your employment can be tenuous, depending on the amount of work available. Similarly, the pay is good but raises and growth potential can be inconsistent.

    I worked at BrownGreer full-time (More than 3 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, in terms of my professional growth, if I was properly promoted and could reference that I had been counsel at the firm (or special counsel). Instead, my official title at the firm will never reflect my responsibilities there, which certainly impacted any future opportunities that I sought afterwards in the legal field. I give the firm two stars because my experience wasn’t entirely terrible, and I was able to hustle some value from it. However, much of, if not all of, what people have identified as cons, I experienced as well.

    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.

    I worked at BrownGreer full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people working there are pretty great. The BG veterans and managers I interacted with were friendly and supportive. Managers were always understanding and would work with you on professional development and if personal issues came up.

    The HQ office at Rockett's Landing is new and sleek. Exposed brick walls, open space work area, glass windows wrapping around each floor and nice conference rooms. Definitely not the worst office to be in.

    BG makes a good effort into providing social gatherings and perks for employee morale. Team Happy Hours and lunches and there is a Thanksgiving luncheon every year and they give away a lot of great prizes. They try to make it fun whenever possible (despite the reality of the boringness)

    Cons

    High turn-over/layoffs pending on projects and contracts that BG has at the time. It can certainly make people on edge about job security.

    Low pay with almost no or bare minimum in raises. I received a very small raise and they added an even smaller cost of living pay increase but was then no longer eligible for an end of year bonus.

    The work itself is soul-crushingly boring. If you're looking to enjoy your work and how you spend the bulk of your waking hours a day - this is probably not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees a better career path and growth opportunities- and pay them accordingly. It's very unfair and frustrating to pay someone an entry-level salary when someone is consistently doing mid-level position work.

    Overall I do not have anything really negative to say about BrownGreer other than the low-pay and lack of more frequent advancement. The people are great, managers are cool, the workplace is nice and it's not the end of the world if your job is boring- people should just decide to do something else if it's not worth the paycheck to stick it out.
