    I have been working at Burns & Wilcox full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Access to a lot of carriers, great client relationships, and positive working environment.

    Cons

    It takes a long time and a lot of training to really learn the business but can be pretty lucrative if you stick with it.

    Advice to Management

    Still some kinks to work out with the overall parent company culture. Invest more time and money into your employees than into your corporate sponsorships. Follow up with branch level managers to ensure they are progressing their employees and giving everyone a chance to be promoted.
