    Pros

    A&G is one of the best places to work if you are new to the industry. You have the opportunity to learn and grow in a small agency who will give you the challenges and responsibilities you desire. Starting a small agency means benefiting from a great work culture where everyone knows everyone and all are willing to help.

    Cons

    It's a small agency so the work is regional, salaries are smaller, and boredom is frequent.

    Advice to Management

    Managing junior talent careers is essential. Take the time to learn what the person you are managing needs and desires, and how you are going to help them get there.

    I worked at Allen & Gerritsen full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Mostly good people. Free meals. Happy hour on Fridays. Summer hours.

    Cons

    Unless you are going to work on the Blue Cross account you are considered expendable and unworthy of working there. Resources are pulled from other accounts to work on BCBS and suffer as a result. The new business department can't close new deals and blames it on the prospective client. Office hours are 8:30-5:30 but if you're not pulling a 10-11 hour day or working on the weekends you are "not being a team player" or...
