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

    Pros

    In the years past there were many pros to working for this company with many long time employees.
    If you are in your twenties and want to work for "below standard industrial " wages while learning the workers' compensation business then this is what you are looking for. Learn as fast as you can and
    move up.

    Cons

    Unattainable expectations and caseload is not manageable.
    Middle management are completely useless because they are so stressed and overworked from micro-managing, they have lost all touch with their teams.
    The New Gallager Way is: Quantity over Quality !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clients should not be sold a service that cannot be delivered.

    I dare any member of upper management, Sr. vice-president, Asst Vice-presidents, Account managers down to office managers to do my job as a CSR for one month and see if you can do my job and not make a few mistakes. I would love to see your reaction when your lively hood is threatened because even you can't deliver what you demand of your employees, maybe then you will realize that the problem isn't because of the worker bees but is directly related to your "new compliance program" , because it is more important to be compliant than to actually take care of our customers
