    I worked at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lunch with vendors, and other misc perks from vendors

    Cons

    Outdated computer systems; constantly freezing or shutting down. Very unmanageable workload. Major micro-managing, totally out of control with no Supv support. Allegedly paperless, but without any uniform process; a real nightmare. Overabundance of emails from mgmt were a major distraction to completing work. Client/customer satisfaction no longer the focus, just a numbers game. Very low morale, lack of communication, no team atmosphere, more like CYOA. A lot of pressure to work OT, no personal life (I worked over 70 hrs/wk). Frozen pay...unless you were an office pet. Very unprofessional office manager; i.e. if you were not related or hand-picked, your life was made miserable to the point of forcing you to quit or be fired. No job security...the overall tone was you could easily be replaced...and many were.

    I worked at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    a few good people, free coffee, good location, job security because lots of people quit

    Cons

    Management is a circus, overworked/underpaid revolving door Client Service Dept, no communication, cog in the wheel, no respect, no accolades, no incentive/motivation to work harder, no recognition for a job well done, no growth opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention or more employees will walk out the door, show some competence, interact with your employees better, show respect, get to know people, HELP out in times of need, be a leader not a manager, a better training model for new employees... The sweatshop review said it all.
