    I have been working at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    In the trenches of a new department so, for me, it's exciting to learn and grow everyday. There is a lot of training available and room for growth. Management is superb and the "team" atmosphere is encouraging.

    Cons

    Being that this is a new department, the work flow is slow...for now.

    Advice to Management

    Management is top notch.

    I have been working at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Compared to other brokerage houses such as Willis, Lockton, USI, HUB etc, Gallagher probably has the best culture: relaxed environment, better staffed and understanding supervisors. Furthermore, Gallagher has a larger market share and thus, has greater recognition. Gallagher has dedicated resources such as Actuarial services, Underwriting department, Survey tools etc. These can be help the account management teams with their periodic deliverables. In my experience, Gallagher looks to employ new talent and then groom them for higher positions in the Account management ladder. This is relatively rare in the other competitors where the staff is often just an amalgamation of bodies to throw work at.

    Cons

    Gallagher is severely lacking in innovation: Internal benchmarking tools are few and far in-between. There is a dire need to develop internal resources that can help drive discussion with clients and prospects.

    Advice to Management

    Create internal resources like Towers Watson, Milliman and Mercer have or you will soon find yourself losing the larger clients to these competitors. Abandon SalesForce, it is just a hole in the ground that you are filling with money.

    Pros

    I had an internship with the St. Louis branch of Gallagher. I love the job and everyone in the office, it's demanding but at the same time incredibly rewarding. You are treated as a well equipped asset, not a coffee serving machine.

    Cons

    Depending on what office you get hired at the internship varies greatly. Some offices have an incredibly well structured program and others have basically nothing.
