    I have been working at Holmes Murphy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment and above average benefits.

    Cons

    Too little transparency from management, not much cross-departmental mingling and communication and lack of growth opportunities or chance to wear different hats.

    I have been working at Holmes Murphy full-time

    Pros

    I enjoy working at Holmes Murphy. The people I work with in P&C are the nicest people. The work/life balance is pretty good as they moved to responsible time off policy. The management in P&C really appreciate and recognize the hard work of their employees. Work is fun if you have the right attitude.

    Cons

    There is lots of growing pain being a small company with small market share in Property & Casualty Insurance. The management in Des Moines don't have a true reality of the other offices. P&C Consultants are expected to have a very large workload with minimal support. Time is wasted on processes and clients aren't getting the level of services they need. We don't have an adequate amount staff to service accounts so employees often feel overwhelmed leading to high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    There is plenty opportunity for growth, but without an adequate amount of support staff, your employees won't be happy and neither will your clients.

    I have been working at Holmes Murphy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Culture is phenomenal and the RTO is great! You are constantly learning something new each day. Plus, as a privately held company, it is much easier to access upper management and plug into everyday decision making.

    Cons

    Although the culture and RTO is great, the pay is below average. It definitely doesn't compare to what publicly traded companies will offer to their employees benefits wise.

    Pros

    Holmes Murphy leads with confidence, thinks differently and cares about the client. The culture program and comradery are excellent.

    Cons

    95% of the leads for accounts are pleasant to work for/with; however there are a couple that make it impossible to thrive.

    Advice to Management

    Get service leads trained on managing and look at personalities prior to building a team.

    I have been working at Holmes Murphy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Culture, culture, culture! HMA not only sets the bar from an industry perspective, they knock it out of the park with their culture. Such a great organization from the top - down. Proud to work for an organization with so much integrity and thoughtfulness. The opportunities to grow your career and develop your skills are endless. Add to that the opportunity to be a shareholder of a privately held firm is significant. Excited to continue in the "Good Footprints" left by the leaders before me.

    Cons

    If you're a lone cowboy and like to run solo, HMA is not the organization for you. Teamwork is a central focus at HMA and if you don't like being part of a team, you will not make it long at HMA.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the tremendous work and keep Thinking Ahead!!!
