AP has the capability and knowledge to win big accounts small agencies otherwise couldn't. However, that revenue will likely not go to the producer that brought the account in, but rather the knowledge center. There is also no additional support for smaller accounts than what a typical smaller agency can provide.
If you are employed by an agency that has been acquired by AssuredPartners, be very aware that employees are viewed as numbers on a spreadsheet. Despite being told I was "one of the leaders looking forward" and "essential to the success of the team" my position was eliminated one year after acquisition. The reason was not job performance, but rather to align expenses with AP standards. Also be aware AP does not pay severance packages or accrued PTO so be sure to build your savings. They demand terminated employees honor their employment contract.
The agency I worked at had producers' pay cut by 20% - 40%. All producers were also forced to sign a revised employment contract right before acquisition without the ability to review it. In addition, all producers became w-2 employees whereas the majority were previously 1099 independent contractors. The drastic change from a family-owned agency with a feeling of caring created a very toxic environment with substantial negativity and feelings of being used.
OK benefits, great co-workers
Pay cuts caused toxic environment, only interested in helping with really big accounts, bad HR policies
