    Pros

    It is a good company to work for and they offer good benefits.

    Cons

    The Human Resources department sucks. If you are uncomfortable with anything do not go to the HR. She do not speak to certain employees and she walks around like she's having a bad day everyday. I really don't understand how she still has a job.

    Advice to Management

    Send the Human Resources department back through training.

    Pros

    Once you earn your manager's trust, you can have flexible hours. Great place to learn if you have knowledgeable and caring co-workers.

    Cons

    Overworked, underpaid and very limited opportunities for promotions! The wrong people get promotions and there are some unqualified people in management positions due to nepotism. Raises come along every few years unless you threaten to leave. "Titles" are given to unqualified people who get the higher salaries and offices.

    Advice to Management

    Please pay close attention to your good and loyal employees and really listen to their input and needs. It's the support staff that maintains the account and keeps the relationship between the client and AJG. It's the support staff that works long hours to make sure the producer looks good. Give the raise. Give the title. Happy employee = client retention.

    Pros

    If you land on a good team, you'll succeed.

    Cons

    Middle management can be a road block to career growth. Benefits package are extremely expensive for both single employees as well as a family of 4. The benefit plans cater to consultant salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Train your middle managers not to micro manage.

    I worked at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits offered were good, considering todays job world. Not much overtime necessary.
    The new exit ramp from the highway makes it easier to get to work.

    Cons

    If your not in the "Crowd" your not going to go anywhere. No casual Friday, no Summer hours, assigned lunch times and management is completely inflexible in regard to allowing you to change your start time or end time to attend an appointment or child's function.

    Advice to Management

    Step into the current century as it will not bend the "Gallagher Way".
