Not a good environment
Senior Security Engineer (Former Employee) –  Daytona Beach, FLAugust 18, 2019
If you value things like honesty and integrity, this is not the place to work. What I was told when I was hired turned out to be very different from the on the ground reality. The leadership refuses to implement foundational controls and best practices, yet will try to obfuscate this by hiring partners they expect to save them from themselves.

Commercial Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Fort Collins, COAugust 17, 2019
If you like management going through all your emails on a daily basis, plus reviewing everything you did to every account, feel free to give them a call.

Lots of favorites
Benefits Consultant (Former Employee) –  Naples, FLAugust 16, 2019
Brown and brown was great in certain areas, I got to meet a lot of nice people, however, management had a lot of favorites and would treat them with favors and such, while others struggled. A lot of people made way more money than others only because they were friends of friends. Management is poor.

Poor management
Accounting and Operations Leader (Former Employee) –  Duluth, GAAugust 11, 2019
Upper management very greedy and out of touch with their employees. If you disagree with management or if your manager doesn’t personally like you, even if you do an excellent job, you are out. If you want to be treated poorly this is the company for you.

Management was not ideal
Assistant (Former Employee) –  New Iberia, LAAugust 6, 2019
Extremely tense and bully-like work environment. Promises for advancement not upheld. Unprofessional and unorganized. Co-workers were great, but the turn around within the company is outrageous. Hardest part about the job was working with boss. New management would make a much better company.

Stay Away
Accounting Leader (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAAugust 5, 2019
Micromanagers with terrible attitudes and superiority complexes. If you want to actually grow as an accountant then don't work here. Join an actual CPA firm or go Big 4. Insurance is one thing but coupled with bosses who don't want you to succeed you may end up dreading going in every day.

Dead end job
Assistant Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Conshohocken, PAJuly 26, 2019
The office politics, and playing favorites are ridiculous. Hard working individuals are not rewarded for their efforts, and unless you are part of the in crowd with management you will deal with severe micromanagement. You will not be able to advance once you are settled in a specific role.

Lots of turnover both staff and management
ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE (Former Employee) –  Rocky Hill, CTJuly 17, 2019
Jobs are not posted from within management just decides if they want to promote someone if they don’t then it is posted on indeed or another source
The positive thing is there a lot of wonderful people in the Rocky Hill office

Trash. Absolute joke of an agency.
Accounting (Former Employee) –  Melbourne, FLJuly 16, 2019
I cannot say enough bad things about this place. If you want to work somewhere that is filled with grade school bullies and jealous girls trying to be on a power trip like they’re all high & mighty...when in reality they have barely any experience with what they’re doing & need others to do their job for them while they get paid for it, then this might be a good fit for you. From ‘soup to nuts’ it’s garbage, ‘does that make sense?’

Corporate culture of an insurance company, as expected. Profit driven for shareholder concerns is primary concern. Structure is top down management.

An environment lacking direction and training and full of bullies being rewarded for their poor behavior
Customer Support Representative (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLJuly 5, 2019
Much the way high school operates, that’s the feeling you get when you work at brown & brown. Even people in the clique will acknowledge its existence and that is basically the way you will succeed there. If you challenge an opinion or someone doesn’t like you, you will not get far. It would be beneficial to hire an HR only staff member in each office to deal with internal office politics with an unbiased approach. I would also ensure each employee was given training and get rid of the clique environment. It makes for an edgy office, with people afraid to be honest and to speak up for themselves when Management often behave like bullies.
Pros
Free lunches and other food and drinking related events.
Cons
Lack of direction and training. . Producers being the exception.

I enjoyed working here because there was a tremendous room for growth and also conveniently close to home. As well as great staff leaders. It definitely expanded my computer skills and ability to work multitask with excel, outlook, etc.

Investigations Assistant (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAJune 19, 2019
Great learning experience, there is room to learn and promote from within. Coworkers are friendly and are willing to help each other out. Training could use improvement but everyone is available for help.

Stressful work environment, poor management
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  PennsylvaniaJune 13, 2019
They claim to care for all employees and preach that we are all vital to the team but that is not true. Leadership looks down on staff under their supervision and treats them as such. This behavior is encouraged by ALL company leaders. To put it simply, everyone is fake and out for themselves. No compassion either. It’s like they are not human!
Pros
None
Cons
Poor management, stressful environment, long hours, unrealistic expectations

Worst in the history of the planet
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Sarasota, FLJune 3, 2019
Brown & Brown Sarasota was absolutely the worst place I have ever worked. Management for commercial lines is a total psycho. Reported to management by so many, who have all left, and she remains. Hateful, spiteful folks with no one who was really an insurance " professional ". E & O's abound. Carrier relations a nightmare because their way was to burn every bridge in sight. Don't care about the clients, the employees (except producers) Just the almighty dollar and bottom line. Speaking of which, this is the lowest producing office in the entire country. Do Not Tak
e a job here. You will hate your life from morning to night. Life is too short!

“Family” oriented aka cliquish
Technical Assistant (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLMay 23, 2019
They push this family oriented but they are absolutely cliquish. Management don’t really care about the small employees (like assistants)
Sales runs everything. The producers are treated like
Kings (by management and some of the service team)
The service team does most of the work but the sales people reap the benefits.
The older Sales producers are allowed to be inappropriate, there was one in particular who always said sleazy things in the office but was never reprimanded.
Lots of family (daughters & mother’s, husband and wives) and there is blatant favoritism
In one department, two account managers quit within a two week span showing how agonizing the workplace was.
High expectations but not enough career advancement.
Can never have one on one time with management.
Was promised a meeting with management but never happened. Never received performance evaluation.
Always being watched by management.
Heavy workload
Producers think you are their assistant.
Catty women, pervert/rude men
Pros
Job stability, good pay as assistant for those who never graduated from college
Cons
Cliquish, no career advancement, heavy workload, emotionally bankrupt sales team, management sucks, no HR department

Not big at promoting from within.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Daytona Beach, FLMay 21, 2019
Some roles people should not have and take advantage of. Some people are not held accountable for their actions while others are held to a higher standard in a lesser role. Politics
Pros
Time off
Cons
Poor raises
