    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Swett & Crawford full-time

    Pros

    Lots of cohesiveness on teams, lots of support in learning the role. Clearly defined roles and work responsibility. People all trying to get the same thing done, so lots of support for overall success.

    Cons

    You really are just a cog in a wheel of a giant machine, and you don't actually matter that much in the overall big picture.

    Advice to Management

    Giving people ownership of process from start to finish would be ideal and make it feel like the work each individual does actually holds weight and brings value to the overall success of the wholesaler brokerage.

    Pros

    Employees are friendly and everyone works hard.

    Cons

    Company seems to be stale and falling behind competitors, it takes management 5 times longer than it should to do anything, company is not interested in growing current employees they would rather hire from outside. Pay seems low compared to competitors

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what you have, not on what you can go out and buy.

  8. "Account Manager"

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 
      Doesn't Recommend

      I worked at Swett & Crawford

      Pros

      Great co-workers who take care of business.

      Cons

      Management doesn't value any employees besides producers who are paid extremely well. Non-producers went close to 10 years without raises. Long term employees were downsized with tricky severance packets. They give up to 6 months severance but it's paid at 70% -- which really means it's only 4 months severance.

      Collaborative work environment across all practice groups. Room to grow if self motivated and willing to learn. Fast paced environment.

      Advice to Management

      Pay your employees fairly for their contributions
