      Benefits Dept. Lacks A Focus On Current Trends and Knowledge Of Industry

      Aug 27, 2021 - Senior Account Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      None - This company fails to evaluate their own mandated processes and protocols for effectiveness. Outdated approaches to client servicing as well as failing to keep up with industry trends in their employment practices.

      Cons

      The Benefits Dept is 10 years behind competitors in industry knowledge and services. Their focus is providing transactional services for clients whereby competitors provide consulting, education and creative solutions for clients. Dishonest producers will say or do anything for a sale and Profit Center Mgr is supportive of them doing anything to pull in a sale...void of integrity.

      Might be okay if you work for the right people

      Pros

      General workplace culture was good - they let the whole office leave early some days when it's nice outside. They have team building activities that are fun sometimes. The people are generally nice overall (except for a few).

      Cons

      Some of the producers are absolutely horrible to work with (one in particular). I have a feeling that this would be a good place to work IF you don't work with horrible producers. Plenty of harassment complaints were brought up to managers & higher-ups against one producer and nothing was done because he brought in so much money for the company. Hopefully you never work for him & you'll be fine.

      Pros

      They will give you the support and tools to succeed in the insurance world. If you can sell and create connections then this is a great place.

      Cons

      Not much training when it comes to helping the newer producers in the office.

      Opportunity Abounds

      Jan 5, 2021 - Producer P&C in Portland, OR
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Tremendous opportunity here for salespeople - Extremely stable industry (ie: we hired during the pandemic, largely unaffected by economic uncertainty compared to other industries) - Very high income ceiling (there is a commitment to realize the ceiling = 5-10 years) - Well run organization. This is a place you could work at and legitimately retire from. No workplace is perfect but Brown & Brown Northwest really does a phenomenal job of seeking to always do best by the employees and their clients - Although this is a publicly traded company they have a decentralized model allows for local decision-making authority - If you're willing to work HARD and are fully committed there are truly very little limitations on your trajectory career and income-wise - Your leadership will equip you with whatever you need to be successful if you're one of the folks who leads from the front and puts in the work - Fantastic training program for new salespeople with zero insurance experience - There is a tremendous culture of "meritocracy", professionalism, integrity, and hustle (and it's evidenced by local and regional leadership - many of them started within the organization and grew into leadership positions - they walk the talk)

      Cons

      - Being a producer is not for everyone: You're going to work a lot - this isn't just a "I want to golf a ton" type of job - be prepared to work 60 hour weeks and work extremely diligently - Work-Life balance can be a challenge, especially at certain times of the year when everything hits the fan - this is not a negative specific to Brown & Brown - any high income potential job will require a good amount of time and intentionality - The learning curve of understanding and truly becoming an insurance expert is not a 1-2 year process (it takes time) - This not a "get-rich-quick" type of job - you're looking at a solid commitment of 5-10 years (and probably longer to reach the upper echelon) to realize some of the income ceiling you're wanting to experience (not necessarily a con but you need to know the sacrifice required up-front and what you're getting in to)

      CEO Approval

      Pros

      Sales Training for new producers

      Cons

      Low pay scale, regimented work environment, poor management.

      Jan 27, 2020 - Account Manager, Benefits in Carmel, IN
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Its a job with a biweekly paycheck.

      Cons

      A regimented, 10-commandment environment even when the rules defy good business practices. Every month employees sign an "honesty and ethics" statement. Producers also have to sign the statement, but are never called out on their unethical and deceiving activities.

      Great Company! -Producer/Sales @ Ft Lauderdale

      Sep 25, 2018 - Producer in Fort Lauderdale, FL
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      -Being a Producer is challenging and fun at the same time, I enjoy competing with the other producers and working as a team with the service teammates when we win clients. -The day to day workload is dynamic so you wont feel complacent or bored - Your pay is directly related to your effort and success.- the opportunity to make exponentially more money drives and motivates you. (Salary+Commission the first 2 years) - Training, Licensing, Networking, and Business related travel/ approved expenses are reimbursed to you. -We have fun events such as a quarterly luncheon, annual corporate run, family fun day & boat cruise, and Happy Hours and Department outings in between.

      Cons

      Our technology is quite behind the times, no laptops, ipads, or SalesForce is provided for teammates.

      Not the best place

      May 24, 2018 - Anonymous Employee

      Pros

      It’s fine for a place for a side job or if you want something to do, but not for a career.

      Cons

      The producers take priority and that’s that. Otherwise you aren’t important.
