Great company undermined by inept local branch management

I have been working at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great brand, market leverage, name recognition and resources

Cons

Old boys club. If you are a middle aged white man you will never, ever be fired. Doesn't matter how poorly he's performed. Insufficient accountability of poor performers. Generally their work load is reduced but pay remains the same. Revenue generated by top performers underwrites low performers existence.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your workforce should be as diverse as your client base. A predominantly middle aged white male leadership team sends the wrong message. Visit the local offices, listen to the top performers and affect change

    Seem to be constantly downsizing, not a lot of strategic planning.

    I have been working at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are many good people to work with.

    Cons

    The last 7 years has been nothing but change, much of it good, but some very painful for much of the company. The work-live balance is non-existant as working on a majority of weekends is unavoidable and there is little opportunity to take vacation time.
