Gutter bracket transports water over edge?

I just had a new gutter installed but the brackets that support it transport water the over edge and it runs down rear wall of house in moderate rain? Is their some kind a simple dam I can fasten on brackets to prevent this? The home is an attached building with a 20'X50' flat roof that is pitched toward the rear of the building and drains into gutter and then downspout. It only runs over where brackets are located in 5-6 locations across the 20' span. Any helpful suggestions will be greatly appreciated

I just looked at what was done on the roof. They installed braces fabricated from flat aluminum that span the gutter and are fastened with self tapping screws. I guess they thought this would provide more support. It most likely does but it also acts as a water slide and transports the rain water over the gutter. Any suggestion on how to remedy this?
