Claims Reviewer (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – November 8, 2015
Environment is easy going. Management however seemed to overlook certain mishaps in others work habits. Other than that the job was pretty rewarding, knowing you were trying to help others as best as possible in their hardships.
BrownGreerPLC creates a friendly atmosphere in the workplace.
Claims Reviewer (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – January 19, 2017
During my tenure at BrowngreerPLC, there was a family type atmosphere which made each employee care about the work they put in on a daily basis. Not only did we care about the work we did, but the people we worked with on a day to day basis. Each individual developed teamwork and accountability skills to complete the required daily task. This was a great experience for me, and I look forward to working with more great companies such as BrownGreerPLC.
PTO was a great system to help plan for personal days to resolve personal conflicts.
Parking was difficult on some days but this was a minor issue.
Not a fun work place to work. Employee tensions are high.
Special Counsel (Former Employee) – Rocketts Landing, VA – July 13, 2016
Poor management and poor relationships toward employees. HR is not a friend of the employee. HR was a management tool to spy on employees, and evaluate employee performance. Employees are scared to talk about management decisions. Understanding managements poor decisions. The job tasks were challenging. The employee fringe benefits were excellent for the Richmond area. Many promotions were based on employee/manager relationships not work productivity.

This place is a sinking ship. Poor management, poor atmosphere/culture, "on your own" mentality. There are some good managers... Less than 1% though. No work life balance, no continuing education program (unless you're talking about the joke of a training team). Horrible pay.... At least 30% below average.
Financial Claims Reviewer, Level III (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – March 3, 2015
I have been employed at BrownGreer PLC since Feb 2013. The most enjoyable part of my job is that I get to help these victims of the oil spill reclaim their businesses and their livelihoods.
On a daily basis, I review business economic loss claims submitted as a result of the BP oil spill in 2010. This includes the analyzing ownership, financial and tax documentation (federal and state) of claiming businesses to determine how much compensation they should receive for their loss.
I enjoy everything about my job (management, co-workers, overall environment), except for the fact that I do not believe that I am challenged. This is the most difficult part of my position. I have been within the top 5% of reviewers (accuracy, productivity & efficiency) since my first quarterly evaluation and am currently within the top percentile.
Overall, working at BrownGreer PLC is a great experience and has provided me with working experience within the accounting finance fields.

Financial Claims Reviewer (Quality Assurance Team) (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – June 19, 2014
This company hires a bunch of people through temp agencies and some are direct hires. They put you through a series of tests which determines whether you stay or go. I was there for two years and never received a raise. They do not give raises. Chances of moving up in the company are slim to none. They do massive lay offs that nobody knows about until an email is sent on a Friday right before the shift is over which leaves employees stressed the entire weekend wondering if on Monday they will be one of many to be let go.Management is a joke. And God forbid you have an issue...they will claim to be "investigating" but do absolutely nothing. They walk around all day like buzzards looking for deceased corpses. The work is easy but the level of stress is beyond what is necessary. HR is also a joke. Bonuses are given to people who do not deserve them which makes those who do feel like its not something to be proud of. Job security is 0. No one knows when a project is ending which would lead to everyone losing their jobs. They talk down to employees in the most nastiest and rude way through email.
Very Generous Bonuses
No job stability. Poor Management. Stressful Work Environment.
Financial Claims Analyst (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – January 16, 2014
Processing financial claims was a great experience that helped lots of the people here int he New Orleans and surrounding areas, unfortunately this was a temporary position, as the company was based in Virginia. Although we all knew that the work would not last it was a great experience. I was able to advance in career as a manager, as well as gain experience with orientations and teach newcomers about the process, the job responsibilities, and express my gratitude, as well as showcase my thorough knowledge of the business.
Subsistence Interviewer (Former Employee) – Houma, LA – October 20, 2013
A typical day at work began at 8:30 AM and ended at 5:30 PM and was pretty to the point. I have learned many things; including: how to be a better leader, be a great listener, type faster, review claims and analyze information, how to communicate on a more professional level, to sympathize with clients, and to be a better person all around. Management was very professional and task oriented. The job was great! I did have to retain a good bit of information and stay on top of policies that would change quite often. Really, the only hard part was knowing the job was temporary. The most enjoyable part of the job was being promoted and learning new roles.
Paid holidays, great benefits and insurance, and every paycheck earned 6 hours of vacation time.
Claims Reviewer (Former Employee) – Richmond, va – October 9, 2013
This place was one of the worst managed places I ever worked. Whenever there was a question asked, there was never a straight answer provided. One person would tell you one thing and another person would give a different answer and then you were held accountable if your work was incorrect. My supervisor was the most unprofessional supervisor I have ever had, making the statement that she had no idea why she had not been fired because she had no idea what she was doing and to me, it was obvious that she was telling the truth.
Claims Quality Assurance Analyst (Current Employee) – Glen Allen, VA – August 10, 2013
I have learned a lot as a BrownGreer employee. Management and co-workers are very supportive and always work together as a team. The hardest part of the job is that there is always so much to learn and a person must be able to stay alert and give 100% at all times.
There is always something new to learn working here.
Claims (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – July 30, 2013
If you are not an attorney, and you show any sort of aptitude, be prepared to work all hours of the day and night. A lot of this is because management doesn'tt know what they are doing. Once the BP case is over they will go through massive layoffs. They aren't getting enough business to justify 1200+ employees. Be careful if you decide to work here.
The atmosphere is a place where hopes and dreams go to die. Unless you are in the right clique, your soul will be crushed like a grape.
