    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!

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Outstanding people in my division; interesting work; best boss I've ever had the pleasure working for; great benefits package (except leave policy)

    Cons

    Limited opportunity for career advancement; not a very flexible leave policy for working parents

    Advice to Management

    Consider revising your leave policy; The Gallagher Family emphasized the importance of family, but doesn't demonstrate this in their time away from work policy. A working parent is likely to have more than 2 occurances of absence per year to care for sick children. This doesn't make us a bad employee!

    Pros

    Ever challenging and full of opportunities to perform. This company allows you to make your own impact but gives you the resources to be able to meet and exceed objectives. Although, there is the appearance of rigid hierarchy, you can speak with most levels of the organization as if all were peers. There is quite a bit of nepotism but they make everyone earn their wings.

    Cons

    Medical Benefits are not the greatest and stock purchase could be at greater discount

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and the stick to your growth strategy.
