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

    Pros

    Publicly traded company with an appreciation that employees are their most valuable asset
    Work environment reflects family values with The Gallagher Way tenets well displayed and embraced by the leadership team
    Talented employees that are really smart and eager to help you learn
    Bright and inviting Gathering Room with fresh coffee, cappuccino or espresso all day long! And they even provide almond milk which makes me smile. Fresh fruit and unlimited filtered water.
    Various employee engagement events

    Cons

    Honestly I can't think of any. While I may still be in my honeymoon period I am very aware that there are frustrations when you have a more detailed work process. I accept that and prefer to work in a corporate environment that reflects solid business reasons to support their high standards and benchmarks.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for hiring new talent! I am sure there are more talented people in the marketplace who would welcome the opportunity to be a part of the Gallagher team. The progressive nature of the company makes AJG an exciting place to work. Never stop striving for improvement!

    Internship exposes you to the real life of a producer.

    The first few years will be very difficult but it will pay off at the end. Life in sales is generally difficult.

    Pros

    Some of the best people in the market
    Amazing culture
    treat people with tremendous respect and appreciation

    Cons

    flip side is there are alot of people who have been there a long time and only know one way to do things. to their credit they are somewhat open minded but slow to change

    Advice to Management

    keep the investment in people, and culture. bringing in new blood via the intern program is a great way to continue to build momentum and energy

    I worked at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. full-time

    Pros

    Wonderful Management with an open door policy. Great training for college graduates ~ good stepping stone for a position right out of college.

    Cons

    Once trained and in the position for about a year you are thrust into a pretty heavy workload. Not impossible but expect to work a lot of overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Try easing newly hired college graduates into position and full caseload a bit more gradually.

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

    Pros

    Clients and colleagues
    Flexibility
    Managers do really care
    Awesome location and office
    Free fruit and snacks
    Thirsty Thursdays
    Opportunity for advancement and learning (I’ve been promoted and if you want it, you can advance)

    Cons

    Still some administrative processes that need to be fixed internally, but I have seen progress.
    Some people are really negative and don’t seem to want to accept that WGA is gone and AJG is our new employer.
    Change is hard for a lot of people here, but it’s still so much better than so many other brokers.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t be sympathetic to the complainers and negative people – they don’t want you to succeed even though they pretend that they do.
