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

    Pros

    I have been with the company for almost a year. This is my 3rd career and it is quite refreshing to land here. The company is passionate about both client and employee success. After working 2 career jobs in the service industry, this group lives up to the hype of delivering on promises. The company is great and the local Austin office is chocked full of tenure and expertise. Even more impressive is the never-ending willingness of people sharing, teaching, mentoring and supporting one another and the clients.

    A well-oiled machine, specifically in the Austin, Tx office.

    Cons

    traffic to the office is a little tough.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

    Appreciate your employees more. Spend some money on culture and wellness (organizing potlucks don't count). Do this at least monthly. Ex. Happy hour, dodgers game, Friday breakfast, office walks. Of course, during work hours.

    Pros

    The warmth and vibe of everyone is so great that it makes the actual work you do a small price to pay for happiness every day. The leadership genuinely wants you to succeed and take on bigger roles as our company is continuously growing and creating new positions.

    Cons

    The genuine push for greatness is skewed to 'favorites' in the office. These are anybody that fully immerses themselves in the culture despite their quality of work.

    Advice to Management

    Stop awarding sub-par employees
