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

    Pros

    AJG seems like a fantastic company to work for, with a good employee philosophy. I met (virtually) some fantastic people who I really enjoyed working with. Since they build their business through acquisitions and mergers, it's nice that they offer such a generous severance package for positions eliminated at the branch level. They took good care of me.

    Cons

    They come into a potential acquisition with catch phrases like 'Everyone's on the bus' and 'Do no harm'. The reality is they don't need accounting or HR staff at the branch level. To 'stay on the bus', I would have had to accept a receptionist/support position, having been the company's controller.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more honestly with acquired staff, and don't keep telling them that nothing changes. In my office, my co-workers felt they were being treated as stupid and with dishonesty throughout the whole merger process. A more honest approach would have made for much better employee morale.

    Pros

    Large, global corporation with moderate stability. Quite a bit of room for growth and freedom to create your own career path.

    Cons

    A public company with the majority focus on shareholders and annual growth factors that are a stretch. Outsourcing various tasks, not always the most efficient for US employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employee feedback, take it seriously and act on it.
