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

Pros

Not a lot of positives that I saw from my tenure at AJG.

Cons

High stress. Understaffed. Favoritism to certain team members. NO TEAM structure. Managers are required to work as engineers and can not manage the teams way they should. The team that I was a part of was one of the most dysfunctional teams that I've had the displeasure to work with in the 20 years I've been in IT. Work from home non existent for Operations folks...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Adjust staffing levels. Acknowledge employee contributions and SKILLS. Allow work from home for ALL team members, not just the chosen few.

    I worked at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.

    Pros

    The program was well organized. Senior brokers are more than happy to spend time with you and show you the ropes.

    Cons

    If you didn't feel comfortable confronting the senior brokers, then you were left without things to do. Have to be proactive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep offering the internship.
