    Pros

    Their ethics are outstanding - they treat professional adults the way they should. Training was provided when asked. Yearly bonuses and raises were given to those who deserved them.

    Cons

    Some micromanaging was frustrating. Some Senior Producers were very condescending and had little faith in their team.

    Advice to Management

    Stop allowing the micromanaging.

    Pros

    AJG & Co., is growing rapidly, which means that there are a lot of opportunities available.

    Cons

    Networking is difficult, as the employee population is so spread out and many roles don't ever have the option to interact. No division meetings, to align on the company strategy. Division silos. Leadership silos. Stale culture.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to new ideas, modern technology, and acceptance of millennial thinkers.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours Supportive co-workers (mostly) Interesting job

    Cons

    Management does not do enough to retain claims adjusters Lack of upward mobility between claim units (Fast Track to Mid level) Yearly raises are a joke You can work your tail off and be an efficient adjuster, but they hardly promote from within The computer applications CONSTANTLY freeze or are down for hours

    Advice to Management

    Specifically at the Oak Brook location, the work environment can be hostile at times. There are many workers who do not "play well with others". The yearly raises are a joke. While employed, I saw at least 5-6 mid level adjusters leave and not once were Fast Track adjusters considered for the position. There is a supervisor who spends a great deal of time walking around and running his mouth and then complains about having too much work. This same supervisor has said inappropriate things to staff and never received anything more than a slap on the hand from the branch manager. I left the company due to the lack of upward mobility and low compensation.
