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

    Pros

    The culture at AJG is great - most people here have been around for 20+ years and spend their entire professional lives here. My role has fairly flexible work hours, and in general, work-from-home seems to be highly accommodated.

    Cons

    For someone living in Chicago, the commute tends to be a hassle as Chicago traffic is notoriously bad.

    Advice to Management

    Since Gallagher's work force tends to be more experienced and starting to get closer to retirement, attracting younger talent may be easier if there were options to work in the city.

    I have been working at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. full-time

    Pros

    Great environment to work (depending on department and group of co-workers) with growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Favoritism and lack of honesty by some management members drain the moral of the employee and create an unpleasant environment for work.

    Advice to Management

    Please know the worth of your good employees. Nepotism could be a positive aspect in a company but when it gets out of hand, the hard working employee becomes resentful. That's how you lose good people.
