    I have been working at McGriff, Seibels & Williams full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    McGriff is very education oriented. They not only provide but encourage education opportunities from insurance license designations to basic insurance knowledge. There is an easy structure in which to problem solve, and there is never a shortage of people willing to help or answer questions. The overall feeling of the company is one of mutual respect. I feel truly appreciated each day for the work I am doing.

    Cons

    I have no Cons to report

    Pros

    The Benefits are decent and the reputation of the company is good as they have been around a long time.

    Cons

    To mirror what others have said...Management is very stuck in the old ways and very little room to move up within the company. Management takes a back seat to personnel issues and problems are never solved. Systems are old and technology is all out dated. (Still on Office 2007) People in cubes who are "happy" here are what you would call lifers and know nothing outside of this world. Flex schedule is not truly flex. You get to pick between a few start times and that's your time unless you get approval to change it again. Run by older men and it's obvious looking at the culture and opportunities. Don't take the "guaranteed 10% bonus" to the bank, they have a more then a handful of trick up their sleeve to shave it down. Weak annual raises, if you get one.

    Pros

    Great training program, awesome co-workers, pays for license and designation, decent salary

    Cons

    Very, very old technology. Bad location for traffic as in getting to office in AM & especially getting home in the afternoon, horrible commute. No working from home, no advancement and "favorites club" BIG TIME!!!

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Exsight and all things dealing with Exsight. Promote good people or they will leave to get promoted at competitors.

    Pros

    Large stable company. Been around for years and will continue to be around for many more.

    Cons

    Less and less people handling more work. Very stressful atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees well and truly appreciate them both by telling them and rewarding them monetarily and maybe you can retain more of the newer employees that are being trained and licensed only for them to take what they learned and move along to another job.

    Pros

    Bi-monthly office happy hours and monthly catered breakfasts are nice and there are some good people who work here.

    Cons

    Dealing with not one but two corporate offices above us is a nightmare. Internet and computer policies are draconian, inflexible, and counter-productive. The culture here is pretty atrocious, and it's definitely a boys' club. The company attempts to cover this up with little gestures like happy hours and catered breakfasts, but it's all just window dressing to cover up for the fact that it's a pretty miserable place to work. There's not a clear path for advancement in most positions, and there's a very large and clear divide between management and the lower-level production employees.

    Advice to Management

    Value diversity and make an effort to avoid rampant and clear sexism. Treat all employees fairly and with respect. Try and address the rifts between departments. Do more to address HR issues that arise.
